“Don't miss out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

In the Lubbock area, don't miss going to Bahama Buck's. It was a great little snow cone place. I recommend the strawberry cheesecake Bahama Mama Review. It was excellent, creamy custard, shaved ice with strawberry cheesecake syrup and a cream topping. We had to go three times while in Lubbock.

“Great shaved ice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Shaved ice is great, many choices for flavors. Price was more than I expected for a sno-cone, but still a great treat on a hot day!

“Genuine Hawaii-style "shave ice"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

If you have ever been to Hawaii, you know that it's usually called "shave ice" and it's NOT a "sno-cone" - shave ice is much finer, like snow "dust." This is what you will get at Bahama Buck's - many shave ice options with great, attentive service. Highly recommended if you want a break on a hot - or cold! - day in Lubbock!

“Best Ice we have had”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

We are from Utah where there is a shaved ice stand on every corner and many of them are very good but none of them compare to Bahama Bucks.
They have a great variety of syrups to choose from but what makes their ice so special is really the ICE. It is like snow, really, just like snow.
We added some ice cream to the ice and it was a real treat. It was a little expensive but really was a treat. Four of us got a small and it was over $20.

“Great way to beat the Texas Heat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

Bahama Buck's is the best shaved ice around! I live in Dallas and you just don't find shaved ice with so many great flavors/options as they have at Bahama Buck's. Whenever I'm in Lubbock, I always make it a point to treat myself! Their ice is shaved super fine and the flavors are always strong and taste like they say and the syrup doesn't all run to the bottom of the cup. They always put on plenty of flavor syrup. I wish someone would open a Bahama Buck's near me!
