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.

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

My husband enjoyed our meal. I had chalupas and he has the pick three, and we shared the spinach dip appetizer. The food was great considering it was mexican food at non-traditional restaurant. The spinach was the best ever.

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.
