We had searched places in Lubbock and what a find. great location, great service and really good food. We loved the small plates so we could sample a lot but the servings were still substantial. The atmosphere is artsy and comfortable for those who just want to unwind. we enjoyed the Escargot and pork belly tacos. we also had the... More

Who would've thought that a perfect little place like this existed in Lubbock, TX? Some locals at a nearby winery recommended this little gem when we asked them the "best" place to eat. The interior was funky, comfortable, and classy. Wait staff very knowledgable and attentive. Tapas choices were to die for! The Santo Burillo was seasoned perfectly and extremely... More

Besitos Jalapeños stuffed with shrimp, cheese and bacon were very tasty but with more cheese than needed. Arugula and pear salad with blackberry zin dressing looked great but was lacking flavor. Maybe it would have been better 1st rather than with the other two spicy items. Special soup of the day squash carrot etc was huge and great. Sangria topped... More

This place never ever disappoints. But my beloved little waitress Rachel is gone! Moved away! I tried a host of different tappas again. Solomillo al Whiskey braised pork in garlic whiskey. ALBÓNDIGAS DE MADRID spicy meatballs in Marsala wine sauce and OLGA PILAR - PASTEL DE CANGREJO, lovely little crap cakes with a champagne grape tomato relish. And my favorite... More

A very interesting dining experience in Lubbock. Rather eclectic art (some professional, most amateurish), an excellent wine list, and a short tapas menu. In other towns, the wine and tapas would be considered pricey, but in Lubbock this is such a new concept that people are willing to pay the price for the experience. Service was good, food was a...

I have been to La Diosa about 4 times now. It was the first restaurant I ever went to in Lubbock on my first trip there 4 years ago. Food which are unique tapas have always been very good. Wines are mostly Texas local wines which I love and highly recommend. The atmosphere is very eclectic with lots of" tripy"... More

As a solo business traveler, I am used to being looked at by other customers, so I won't mention that happened here would rate La Diosa any different. Some clientele looked like wealthy young ladies, but this restaurant was perfect for them and a couple. The food is like other reviewers said Tex-mex'ish than real Spanish, but my gazpacho and...

The atmosphere is very different from anything else in Lubbock. It has a very nice European feel. The tapas are good but a little on the tex-mex side rather than Spanish tapas. I always enjoy this place.

We live two hours from Lubbock but when we hit the town we want to find a new place to eat. This place was highly rated and opened at 11. We had an early start. The menu choices were great - I could have gone for several salads, but we split the Rebecca baked brie and I had the Marina... More

La Diosa is different from the fare I expected in Lubbock. Good friendly service and a large selection of unusual plates. We really enjoyed the sardines in garlic butter and the Albondigas - Spanish meatballs. Nice to have the local wines, also.
