After two I was on my ass,” is usually heard at this bar.  The atmosphere is mostly college students…seeing as it is close enough to campus for students to get a margarita in between classes!  No live music, just the strongest, tastiest margaritas in the county!  They have two patios as well as great food!  Not only are their margaritas ranked by kind of car (i.e. Lexus, Cadillac, Porsche, Ferrari) but they also add EVERCLEAR to them!  There is also one located in Fort Worth.

Great place to come and have dinner, not so much a great “bar”.  Wed it is pretty packed and a fun place for an early afternoon drink.  Not a place to go for just drinks.  No  live music, great patio, right next to campus, surprisingly popular.   I only recommend a few drinks after work on Wednesday.

Good live music, 75 different beers on tap, 25 different bottles, great sports on TV, pool tables, shuffle board, close to campus.  One of the best place to hang out in Lubbock.  Always packed at night, minors are allowed in.  Mixed drinks are decent, beer is great and bartenders know their shots.  You will be hard pressed to find a beer that they don’t have, smithwicks, real ale, shock top…it’s on tap.

– Special thanks go out to the famous Red Raider, Zach Bennett!
