We were in Lubbock for a campus tour. I was texting my pet sitter in Dallas and she recommended this place. I am so happy she did. I am not afraid of dives, so that almost made me happy as I know they are some of the best places. This place did not disappoint. As we ordered we read the "rules" on the side of the drink refrigerator. It states if you order your food medium or hot it will be and they will not recook your food. Boy that was the truth. I eat hot and medium rocked my socks. Loved it. It did take 20 minutes which was also stated on the fridge.
The best part, other than the food , was the guy who came in stating that he had waited 26 years to come back to eat there and would be back next Friday on his way back through. He was a Tech Alumni. Even said his wife was mad she wasn't there with him. I loved listening to him talking to the owner like they were old friends. My only complaint is they need to clean the ceiling fans. But that is why they are called dives. Highly recommend this lovely Lubbock Jewel.
