I have been coming here for 20 years and have never had a bad experience! My parents use to bring me here as a kid! Great food, service and fun! I now bring my niece here and she loves it!

Great food, great drinks, great service and a place for the kiddos to burn some energy. Can't beat it! Matt always takes care of us at the bar! Will be back soon!

We saw they had good reviews but the place was busy and we only went because it had a game room for the grandkids. The drinks were ok many choices and a large selection of American, Mexican. But I have had better food at any other restaurants. Very busy and load because there is nothing else to do in Lubbock.

The food is bland as well as the drinks. Margaritas were very generic. We had fajitas, which had no flavor and not much meat. One ordered the quesadillas...it was barely enough to fill up our son and that was the dinner size. The game room was the best part. Similar to mr gattis but a larger scale.

I came in for a beer at random and my barmaid was Kirsten She gave great service and my drink was there quicker than quick. The bar staff was equally as friendly. I highly recommend asking for Kirsten. You will get amazing service with a friendly smile.
