Sometimes, we all need a little comfort from our food.

Whether that looks like a big bag of Salsa Verde Doritos (guilty!) or a nice night out, comfort foods (when indulged in responsibly) can be a nice mini-vacation from the stress and anxiety of the day.

The best comfort foods are the ones that remind us of happy memories- and the ones that help us make new ones.

Lubbock has plenty of fantastic options for fantastic food, and I wanted to highlight a few of these places, within a certain set of criteria:
