They use fresh ingredients for their authentic recipes. Very good food and cozy atmosphere. They have at least two locations in Lubbock and have been in business for many years. I like trying older established restaurants because they typically have the best food.

We loved the service, the quality of the food, the variety, and the prices were right. We had the pesto almond pasta.....superb; and the veal parmiggiana delicious. Clean and very nice decorated.

Great Manicotti (half order has 2, I get one with marinara and one with Alfredo sauce) and Pizzas!! I'm not a dab of much more on the menu, but these two are wonderful!

I have been a big fan of Orlando's since the 70s when I was old enough to get my driver's license. They have always served very good and fairly authentic Italian fare and I've always enjoyed eating there. But back in 2011 Texas Monthly magazine published a feature article about Texas' best hamburgers (non-chain restaurant), and Orlando's won the 7th... More

YUM. This place hit the spot. Large list of menu selections and everything brought to the table looked good. Thoroughly enjoyed my entree. Will definitely return the next time I am in Lubbock!

EAT the Green Chili Chicken Linguini! I will try to recreate it at home since getting there on a regular basis from Florida won't work too well!

We'll we were in a hotel one night and the driver came and didn't have cash. We ended up paying 80$ for 42.28$ of food. And the driver took it. We called orlandos and they did not offer anything other than having the same deliverer to drive out in the SNOW, and we simply told him it is not about... More

Lubbock has a number of Italian restaurants, and most all are good. But Orlando's is our top choice for really delicious food. Their lasagna is served on metal trays and stays really hot. Their garlic bread is delicious. The meat sauce is superb, and is generously applied. The salad is more than just lettuce and compliments any meal. The service... More

I highly recommend the green chile chicken linguine. It's expensive but worth it. Also, try the Wisconsin cheddar soup! It is perfect for a cold day!

Thanks for taking the time to write a nice review! If you like spicy food try the Potato Green Chile soup next time or Down and Dirty Tortellini with Sausage NUCLEAR if you dare. I had that dish last night! Sincerely, Loyd L. Turner, President, Orlando's Enterprises, Inc. More
