OH GOLDEN CORRAL.. has anyone ever really thought about the name of that place.. once you put two and two together.. do you still want to eat there.. The Golden troth, The Slop House, My Favorite is in Boise.. I dont know how they get people with this name.. CHUCK-O-RAMA... yeah that just conjures an image you want to eat at doesn't it? Then there is the king of them all.. because you cant have a Slop Troth/corral without a BARNHILLS.

I think the people who got it right from the name on are the Country Buffet, or the Hometown Buffet places. That just takes the whole barn, pig, troth thing out of the picture, and makes you think of mom, and country fairs.. yummy.. Buffets, Inc. Family of Restaurants:Old Country Buffet, Hometown Buffet, Country Buffet

The Best Steak though.. Cattle Barons... But then again I have not eaten too many places besides there in Lubbock so I cant really say fer sure.

The Double Nickel Steakhouse on Slide is also excellent. Can't go wrong with Cagles, Las Brisas, 50 Yard Line, Cattle Baron, or Double Nickel.

Very good post. By the way, it should be noted that Lubbock has the highest number of restaurants per capita of any city in the U.S. That, according to the Avalanche-Journal.

Hard to believe.

In the meantime, I'll look and see if 50 Yard or Double Nickel have websites. I'm just curious.

And Lubbock used to have more boats per capita than any city in the US.....in spite of the fact it has no good boating water. Could we apply the same 'logic' to the number of restaurants?

Default Here's One For You

Look what I found, everybody.

Lisa West's Double Nickel Steak House

You won't believe this. Fine dining and sliced tomatoes is a side dish. This ought to be worth a try!

Don't forget that she also owns Spanky's over by Tech. You actually get cheese sticks with your steak. And if you've ever eaten at Spankys, you know how GOOD these cheese sticks really are.

Well, there's now Lake Alan Henry which is a 1 hour drive from town. It's actually an excellent lake for boating. But, you pretty much have to have a boat to have any fun out there. No beaches or camping yet. Great fishing and boating lake though.

I have been there, but it has been more than a few years, but I remember it being okay.

Alright, here's a question for the masses. What does Lubbock have against T-bone steaks? I don't see them anywhere on Cagle's or Double Nickel's menus. You can get them in Amarillo and any other Texas city, but not in Lubbock. We're talking T-bones here, folks. What's up with that?
