Birthday finally back at home!

I live in San Antonio and this is my first time home to be able to do anything since I moved in 1999! It's nice to see that some of my favorite places really haven't changed! Service was still amazing and the food was great! I was given the option between a shot and ice cream for my birthday... read more

We were in a hurry and the server noted that right away. The service was excellent on our time crunch for a quick bite. The food was great too. My daughter ate the chicken kids meal, I ate the chicken avocado salad which was amazing and a cup of tortilla soup. My husband had the fajitalota's (not sure sp right).... More

Even if you do not have kids, 50th street is worth visiting. They have great food, especially their Mexican Food. I also enjoy their burgers. Furthermore, the staff is very friendly in the bar area, if you want to escape the kiddos and enjoy a game on TV. Highly recommend 50th.

Saturday night at Caboose was loud and active. The service was fair and the place was hopping with kids, couples, families, and dates. Did I mention it was very loud? The food was mediocre, but the salsa and chips were good. We ordered the fajitas for 2 and there was nothing special about them. It comes with sour cream and... More

This place is always good. The food always tastes great, but it can occasionally take a while to get your food. I wouldn't recommend eating lunch here if you're in a hurry. But, the games are tons of fun for kids and some are even good for adults if you like racing or arcade games.

If your like me then you know the importance of finding a place where you little ones can be littles ones aka loud. This place give you that. It has lots of games for kids to play and the prices were not all that bad. Plus it gives you a place to pass the time if you have a long... More

Chicken fajitaladas were excellent. Enjoy the chips, salsa and the season salt they give you. Everyone loved their meals. Not pricey. Comfortable atmosphere. Kids can play games.

Listen I have been going to the cooper caboose on 50th quite frequently since I moved to lubbock. The waiters have always been a hit or miss but the pricing was on the cheapish side and I don't make a lot of money so that's where me and the Hubbie decide to go. Today we decided to splurge and go... More

I had heard that they had good mexican food but never stopped in before... Wow they do and everything was really good! The downside was the smell of smoke.

I lived in Lubbock while going to school, and every now and then (because who really wants to visit Lubbock?) I go back for a visit. When I go back the same questions always come up of where to eat, this is always one of the first places to be suggested. The food is not outstanding, but it is pretty... More
