If you missed the 34th Street hole in the wall article, let me reintroduce my opinions.

I've never been one to chase the newest and latest restaurants that come to Lubbock. It's frankly ridiculous when traffic enforcement is needed for the latest national chain coming into Lubbock because people are lined up down the block to get in line.

Full disclosure: this list was way harder than the 34th Street one. I love places like Saigon, George's Diner and Beijing House, but I picked a number before I started and stuck with it. I'm sure you'll let me know what other gems of Lubbock I missed.

Back to the point, these buildings might be unassuming from the outside, but the kitchens absolutely know what's going on.
