My friend Alicia had a birthday party here on Saturday , I had such a fun experience, the drinks were good but the specials need to run a little longer. I haven't been here in a while but it was good I may come again.

Good variety on the menu - including some healthy choices. The nachos ("the works") are great and plenty to share with 2-4 people. It is a little loud but always active and lots of t.v.s to keep up with various sporting events.

Well, I just made the mistake of trying Caprock Cafe again. First, the place still smells like a dirty mop. Second, my beer in the frozen mug was flat. Third, my burger was warm at best and the fries were cold. Probably a good place...More

I apologize for your poor experience. It certainly is not our norm. I have already sent your comments to our management team at that location and all of those failures will be addressed at the management meeting. Thanks for letting me know!

Nothing fancy, decent burgers, but if you want the bison (buffalo) which we opted for, it's a $3.50 surcharge. Warning: the green chili cheeseburger is HOT. A total surprise at first, much spicier than the New Mexican standard. Excellent, though. The Caprock Cafe touts how...More

We're limited in our beer selection due to cooler space, but we serve our beer in frosty schooners and it is ice-cold, so I think that is why the Lubbock citizens keep voting us the best place to have a beer. You are correct about...More

We always enjoy grabbing a beer here. The food is pretty good as well. The nachos are usually our go-to, but we like the burgers too! Nice local bar scene.

Thanks for coming in! We built a bar that minimizes the drama in getting a cold beer and a decent bite to eat. We want our customers to just relax, not worry about stuff! We'll keep a schooner frosty for your next visit!

This is one of three times that our service has been mediocre. Took about five minutes for manager to watch us stand by a dirty table before asking someone to clean it. Waitress asked if we wanted chips and queso, but never brought it, until...More

Thanks for letting us know we have some work to do. We're always training our staff, but sometimes we slip up. No excuses. We will do better.

Fast and friendly service in a sports bar atmosphere. Good burgers and really cold beer. Music could have been lower in volume but the burgers were still good and the beer cold.

Thanks for the nice review! A couple more beers and the music level would have been fine. lol There are some spots that are quieter than others like the booths along the north wall. Come back soon!

The fried steak is the one of our top sellers and we get comment cards raving about it. Chicken fried steaks are like wine, women, and song--everyone has a different idea of what they like. I personally tested almost every chicken fried steak in town...More

"Cold Beer,Big Burgers,Hot Music"! Caprock Cafe opened in 1997, and is a fun and casual cafe with friendly service, great Texas atmosphere, and an enclosed patio. The menu features char-broiled burgers, Tex-Mex, and lots of spicy appetizers. Caprock Cafe at 34th & Indiana is close to Texas Tech and the United Spirit Arena, and is the perfect place to meet after games, concerts, and shows. Look for us under the big oak tree in the middle of the shopping center just west of Walgreen's Drug Store, next to Foot Tech. Caprock Cafe at 82nd & Slide is located in Rockridge Plaza (where Lowe's Supermarkets is and we are next to China Town Restaurant) in southwest Lubbock, and features plenty of parking. Look for the red windows under the tree on the west side of the parking lot.
