Both Orlando's locations have a full bar for those wanting a glass of wine, a Blue Zuni margarita, or their favorite liquor--try Tito's Texas Vodka in a Chilton.

This restaurant has the best pizza I have ever had. I just moved to Lubbock over a month ago and I can honestly say that I eat at Orlando's at least twice a week. They offer a great menu. The staff is very friendly. I will definitely continue to go back.Was this review helpful?Yes(1) No|Flag Abuse
Thanks for the kind words! We try really hard to run a good business that is fun for people to go to over and over. I first ate at Orlando's in 1972 as a Texas Tech student. Later I bought in with the original owner in 1978. I still am passionate about the restaurant business. We have a lot of fine young people working for us. Come back soon!
