at a peak time ... a FRI night. Largely a kids/family place w/ lots of games. Dinner was average, in my opinion, @ best. Noise level made conversation tough. Our Waitperson was superb!

We eat lunch at 50th Street at least once nearly every week. Best Tex-Mex food in Lubbock and very reasonably priced! Great service, great chips and hot sauce, great atmosphere! Phil, the manager, runs a really good restaurant.

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.
