Parking all around building. Went a lunch time, a little early, no problem. Parking spaces are a little "close" to each other. Lots of folks with larger trucks making it not so easy to get in and out. Should go a little early or a...More

We ate lunch at Orlando's on our way through town. Service was amazing. Food was great. We did not have to wait long for anything. Prices are very reasonable, but the portions were way too much. My wife and I could have shared a half...More

Orlando's is a Lubbock owned restaurant, and not a chain. It does have 2 locations in Lubbock, TX. The salad with house (Italian) dressing is very good. No tomatoes or anything extra on it though. The lasagna is indescribably delicious, and the more you have...More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a nice review of our lasagna! We appreciate your business very much. You are correct in that family restaurant label. The Cea family has been involved in Orlando's for 52 years now. I am a...More

I'm sorry you did not like our food. After 52 years of serving the same recipes to Lubbock we dare not change them now. We've tried offering more expensive wines. They did not sell even at a lower markup than most places. Back in 1980...More

First time to eat at Orlando’s and was very pleased. Our waiter was helpful and checked on us a couple of times. The food was very good. I would go again.

After each Tech football game we attend, we have a small fraternity reunion while dining at Orlando's. We prefer the Avenue Q location, easy in, easy out, not as crowded usually. More importantly, the Italian food is so consistent year to year. Service is outstanding...More

We always want to bring visitors to this Orlandos! It's local and the food is wonderful!! When I say "It's all good, but you might want to try the Green Chili Chicken Pizza." Looks of polite skepticism. Then they taste it!!! Wow is the reaction!...More

Thanks for taking the time to let others know about the Green Chile Chicken Pizza! The way the sauce makes the crust taste is truly a marriage made in pizza heaven! lol Come back soon!

This is one of two locations in Lubbock. If you're wanting Italian and you're more in the downtown or Texas Tech area, it's worth a visit. Extra parking in the rear of the restaurant. Good for lunch or dinner.

Thanks for the nice review! The parking is a good tip for people who have not been there before, as it is not obvious from Ave. Q. Come back soon!

Thanks for the nice review! I'm glad you still love Orlando's, but I agree, 20 years is just too long between visits! lol

Much better than other location. Chicken Parmesan was outstanding. Salads are good. Fried mozzarella is very, very good. His is the one to visit. Busy, but worth the wait.
