Food ok, really more of a place you take the kids to play overpriced games. Offers a full bar and tv's. Not my first choice at all. Very loud.

Loved the old school look of the place. The waiter/bar tender was super awesome!! The guacamole burger was amazing!!! The fries were average and I have gotten too used to non smoking establishments, so I didn't care for that aspect. Overall a nice lunch while in Lubbock for the day.

I go to caboose once or twice a week with friends. We go to the sports bar side instead of the game side so that we can enjoy our cigars. I have eaten on the other side as well though and generally get great service when I am there. The food is really good I have tried lots of different... More

Food is great, Tex-Mex fare but atmosphere is over the top busy and noisy. When you take kids you can bet they won't be sitting at the table eating with you. The arcade games are too much distraction. Don't go if you want to talk in a normal to e of voice.

Serving both chicken and beef fajitas and then added many traditional American and authentic Mexican dishes, prepared by Lupe Gonzales.The 50th Street Caboose opened in August of 1990 at the corner of 50th Street and Slide Road. It was designed by managing partner Phil Bradley and owner Bob Jordan with a few twists to enhance the proven Caboose concept.A midway with over 100 games and a redemption center stocked full of toys, novelties, and giant stuffed animals help to enhance the fun atmosphere.
