The Top 10 Highest-Rated Lubbock Restaurants According to Yelp
Yelp reviews can either make or break a business. Much of the time, people only report to Yelp when they've had a bad experience and don't typically go out of their way to give reviews when they have a good one. I always try to keep that in mind and take Yelp reviews with a grain of salt.
That being said, let's see what the top 10 highest-rated restaurants in Lubbock are according to Yelp.
10. Manara Cafe
Manara Cafe has an overall rating of 4.4 stars on Yelp with 140 total reviews. The last review they had was on September 3rd, 2022, and says "This was our first time to try Mediterranean cuisine and we order 3 different plates to get a little of everything and it was so good. We couldn't finish so we have some for later." The customer gave them 5 stars.
The West Table has an overall rating of 4.4 stars on Yelp and has been reviewed by 347 people. Their most recent review was posted on August 23rd, 2022, "If you head to The West table do yourself a favor and don't drive. The cocktail menu has something for everyone and the drinks are prepared with love. So good you'll want to sample two or five. The menu consists of an excellent variety of flavors and combinations and they change it up every so often which keeps it fresh for repeat customers. It's set up on the ground floor of a boutique hotel and has a somewhat sprawling layout. It has a bar area which is somewhat small but cozy. The staff are super friendly and happy to chat so if you're on your own I'd recommend the bar area. You can meet some new people and watch the bartender construct liquid magic. This place is quality and highly recommended. Enjoy."
This customer gave them 5 stars.
The Cast Iron Grill has an overall rating of 4.4 stars on Yelp with 277 reviews. The most recent review by a customer was on August 29th, 2022. It says, "Breakfast was good, plenty of food for the money. Place was busy but food didn't take more than 10 mins to come out after ordering."
The Shack BBQ has an overall rating of 4.4 stars on Yelp with 312 reviews. The most recent review was on September 23rd, 2022. The review states, "tried them for the first time today and it was amazing!! BEST collard greens I've ever had and the bbq sauce options are amazing. Delicious, will be back soon!!!" I'd say there's definitely a reason this is one of the oldest restaurants in Lubbock.
Raspados Colimas has 4.7 stars on Yelp and was reviewed by 70 customers in total. The most recent review was on September 15th, 2022, and states "Bomb tacos and elote cups! Hot sauce is amazing too! Definitely one of our new go-to spots for Mexican food."
All American Eatery & Catering Co. has an overall rating of 4.7 stars on Yelp from a total of 76 reviews. The most recent review was on September 23rd, 2022, and says, "If you are looking for a hometown diner feel, this is the spot. Down-home cooking that hits the spot. 4 stars because it was a little expensive but what place isn't these days."
Chopped and Sliced BBQ has an overall Yelp score of 4.6 stars and was reviewed by 216 people. The most recent review was on September 20th, 2022, and says, "We ordered takeout and got Pulled Pork, Brisket, Chopped Brisket AND the Smoked Jalapeño Sausage. Every one delicious but that Jalapeño Sausage was extremely good! Sides were good too especially the Green chili Mac & Cheese. Service was good, order was ready. The only regret was we didn't get our Green chili Cornbread muffing which we were very much looking forward to, but you know how it is, once you get home.....Anyway a great place for BBQ in a land of great BBQ places!"
Seoul Korean Cuisine has an overall Yelp rating of 4.6 stars and has been reviewed by 263 people. The most recent review was on September 23rd, 2022, and says, "I went here with a friend and the food was amazing. The customer service was even better than the food. We were both greeted by what seemed to be the owners if not the main managers and they were the absolute best. We love going there and we will definitely return. Overall experience 100 out of 10."
Fun Noodle Bar has an overall Yelp rating of 4.7 stars and was reviewed by 134 people. The most recent review was on September 20th, 2022, and says, "It was pretty good overall good service good food, and a fun time. The dim sum was amazing, definitely check this place out."
The number one restaurant on the list is Vizo's African Bar & Restaurant, with a 4.9-star rating. It's been reviewed by 104 people. The most recent review was on September 9th, 2022, and says, "Meat was marinated with rich spice and flavor. Had pork ribs with a side of Suya and a meat pie which we ordered 'African Spicy' which hit the spot for those of us spice fans. The flavor in the rice was a great addition as well. Definitely improved at the new location. Well worth the trip if you're in LBK."
Are you surprised by the results? These are clearly some incredible restaurants in Lubbock. I can't wait to check out Vizo's. I've been meaning to go there, and now, I definitely need to see what all of the fuss is about. Happy eating!
