“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Staying at the La Quinta Medical Center next door, I was glad to find the restaurant within walking distance. I arrived pretty late for Lubbock, around 9:45pm, but thankfully, El Chico was still open. I tried the Top Shelf Fajita Quesadillas, they were a little different than what I was expecting, but delicious! I would highly recommend trying them.

“Great place for Tex-Mex”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has been in Lubbock for forever which shows it's really great. The salsa is delicious! Their white queso and enchiladas are also very, very tasty. The service is speedy, Lindsey is a great waitress especially. There is an Enchilada Special every Wednesday so make sure to go in! The apple pie is served on a skillet and it's incredibly good. They always get my order right. This is a great restaurant.
