Lived in Lubbock in the late 90's and Orlando's was the best Italian food around. Revisited today and had the Green Chile Chicken Linguine. Oh my, comfort food. It brought back old memories. Thanks for a terrific meal.

Orlando's is a mainstay in Lubbock. It is where the locals eat. I have never had bad service in over 40 years of eating there. The one and only problem that I have is that the food is very spicy hot. Their Mafia-queso and chips are delicious but very hot with peppers. Their food has always been fresh and quality... More

We are in love with the blending of southwest flavors with traditional Italian dishes. We had the Green Chile Potato Soup. It was excellent. One of those dishes that makes you immediately start looking for the recipe on Google. Our server was very friendly and attentive. She helped to make our lunch a memorable experience.

Texas Monthly called Orlando's "Tex-Italian", as we lean towards the hot end of the spice scale! The founder came from New Mexico and brought the green chilies with him. lol Thanks for the kind words! More

Orlandos gives you a great, local place to be relaxed and still get great food. They've been around for many years so they are proven. Great Italian with a Texas flair. The green chili and chicken pizza with the honey wheat crust is awesome! Lasagna another favorite.

Orlando's was my favorite restaurant while living in Lubbock, and each time I make it back to the South Plains in make it a point to eat there. The food is not your typical Italian fare. From the Mafia Queso served with French bread to any of the fettuccine alfredo combinations, you will not be disappointed.
