Best Places to Take Mom on Mother’s Day in Lubbock – Our Top Five

Mother’s Day is the one day a year when you should go above and beyond for the mother or mothers in your life. It’s not the only day you should thank or honor moms in your life, but it should be the one day in the year that you shower them with praise, gifts and a nice meal. There is no real wrong place in Lubbock to take your mom on Mother’s Days but there are a few that stand head and shoulder above the rest when it comes to extra special. Check out our list for the best places to take your mom on Mother’s Day here in Lubbock.

2322 Overton: The Overton Hotel has quickly become a staple for luxury, here in the city of Lubbock, since it opened its doors just a few years ago. The best thing about the Overton is their extremely delicious food at the 2322 restaurant. Dine on five star food without having to pay the price for it. They have full menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with each having their own staple dishes. We suggest the Chicken Carbonara for mom if you take her to lunch or the Salmon en Papillote for dinner. There is no real wrong dish to be ordered at the Overton. Just make sure you treat her to a nice dessert too!


Stella’s: Any occasion can be celebrated at Stella’s. From graduations coming up, prom or, of course, Mother’s Day, Stella’s has you covered for whatever the occasion is. You can always expect a dynamic dining experience with Stella’s. They offer a full menu for both lunch and dinner including signature pizzas, pasta dishes, soups, salads and so much more. For lunch we suggest the Penne with Spicy Sausage Sauce or a bowl of Stella’s chicken soup and a Cobb salad. Dinner is our favorite with Bianca with Spinach Pizza or the Veal Marsala. Anything and everything on the menu for Stella’s will certainly bring a smile to the face of any mother on their special day.


Hayashi Hibachi: The Hayashi Hibachi in Lubbock is top of the line when it comes to sushi and Japanese dining in the city of Lubbock. Hiyashi offers a fun filled experience at the hibachi grill and some of the best sushi in the state of Texas. The mom in your life would enjoy getting to watch someone else cook in front of her. We all know moms could use the cooking break. If the mother in your life is a fan of sushi, we suggest the Alaska or Spider rolls. If she is a fan of Japanese food off the grill, then tell her to order the chicken or shrimp tempura. It may be a little out of the norm for mom’s here in Lubbock, but Hayashi could make for the perfect Mother’s Day experience for everyone.


The Funky Door: The Funky Door will open their doors for a special event for Mother’s Day. They aren’t usually open Sundays but are making special events for the big holidays, like Mother’s Day, that fall on a Sunday. Don’t let their name fool you, the Funky Door is funky but in a good way. The mom in your life could use a little funk since they are usually feeling like their stuck in a funk. Moms could enjoy the Sun-Dried Tomato Alfredo Tortellini, Grilled Swordfish or the Funky Door Signature Gourmet Burger. They also serve Fondue ranging from spinach artichoke to blue cheese. Mom can also enjoy a wide selection of wine. Make mom a little funkier with a trip to the Funky Door on Mother’s Day.


Zio’s Italian Kitchen: If the mom in your life is looking for something new to try in Lubbock on Mother’s Day, then take her to Zio’s Italian Kitchen which opened up just this week. It’s new spins to traditional Italian dishes that will make any mom happy on her special day. Zio’s can provide a fresh twist to appetizers like Italian Nachos or Italian stuffed mushrooms. They also serve wonderful dishes like Chicken Piccata, Ribeye Tuscano and Thai Chicken Pasta. Mom can also be pampered with desserts that stack to the ceiling including tiramisu and bread pudding alamode. Zest up mom’s big day with a trip to Zios and make sure to plan for a nap afterwards…she’ll need it.


Mother’s Day can be spent at any restaurant here in Lubbock, or just sitting around the table at home. Just make sure you make the day about her. It’s all about being together on a day like this. And don’t forget, tell the moms in your life that you care about them and love them every day!
