Regular Hours

General Info:
Orlando s Italian Restaurant has been serving our "Tex-Italian" (Texas Monthly gave us that moniker) cuisine since opening its original 24th & Ave. Q location in 1965. Orlando's is Lubbock's oldest full-service restaurant--you cannot fool the local diners so you know our food is good! We serve a wide range of delicious foods--popular Texas appetizers like Mafia Queso, pasta dishes such as our famous beefy lasagne, and unique specialty dishes such as our top-selling dish Green Chile Chicken Linguine. For pizza lovers Orlando's prepares your favorite hand-tossed pizza with a choice of original white or honey-butter wheat dough. Try a pizza with brown rice for a taste you cannot get anywhere else! 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. Orlando's has consistently won "Best Italian Food in Lubbock" in both newspaper and TV polls. Orlando's offers take-out and if you cannot come to us we will deliver our food right to your door! Our delivery and take-out menu includes Lubbock's favorite family meal the Spaghetti Pack, and Party Packs that can feed a crowd of ten at your office or party!

Old Reliable

We moved from Lubbock 9 years ago, but every time we go back to visit we have to eat at Orlandos. We love the food & atmosphere. We were a little disappointed this last visit that the prices had gone up so much, but the food is worth it!!

World's Greatest Pizza

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.

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!
