“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Good, unique food with lots of green chile choices, a decent beer and wine list and a short wait. Located off the South Loop in Lubbock. Orlando's was recommended by many of the local emergency responders, which is usually a worthy endorsement.

“Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The garlic pepperoni & cheese bread is my favorite. Ministrone soup is different in a good way. Pizza and pasta dishes are are very good. Service and staff go out of there way to be helpful and pleasant.

“Good Italian Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Went there with a large group. The service was excellent, liked that they just continue to bring you the very tasty garlic bread. The red sauce was good..maybe a little thin. Had the cheddar cheese soup, very good with a rich bacon flavor. Apparently they have a cheese dip (we did get to try it) that is a cross between Mexican cheese dip and a garlic bread dip. There are at least 2 different locations in town.

“Ok Could be Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Orlando's Can be Great! The last 2 times I ate there or got to go ),, the sauces were to Oily ! So I have Not ate there since!
This place is a Keeper>
If the Green Chicken Linguine is to Oily ,, send it back!! It is a GREAT dish !
And if you have to wait more than 10 mins. for service.. Leave !!
I really used to love going to either location,, but now it's a crap shoot on what will happen!!??
