We have gone to many restaurants here in Lubbock and for years gone to Cattle Baron-which we will never go to again!!. Let me tell you-Texas Land and Cattle ("TxLC") is ABOVE and BEYOND what we expected. When you go, make sure you get James as your waiter-he is knowledgeable and everything he referred was right on the money. He made our visit one to remember! He suggested some great appeatizers and to try the lemon zest dressing on the salad. Well, he was right. I never had such a flavorable salad dressing ! It was to die for. And the sirloin he suggested-oh my-what a delight! It was so tender you can cut it with a fork and mine was well done! James treated us like his own family-giving us more of everything-bread, butter, toppings for our baked potatoes and more bread and butter. We didn't have to ask for anything - James was anticipating our every need. I highly suggest you go to "TxLC" and request James for your server. I commended James and the seating hostess to the manager and he was very pleased and appreciated our comments. The money is well worth what you get and if you want great food and great service, "TxLC" is the place to be. Forget the rest, especially Cattle Baron-which on a scale from 1-10 where 1 is fantastic, I would rate Cattle Baron a minus 55!
I'm not sure what the last review was about.. but I do understand that there wasn't any bread or other items, due to the fact of how busy they have been. I visited it twice this week n had a great experience. The serve Zena was awesome.. a young man stop by my table to check on us, he was very great. The food took a little long due to the fact it was busy, but it was well worth the wait. I will be back.
The Sand Trap is a real honest-to-God West Texas Saloon. The atmosphere is perfect, the company is fine, but getting to it is a giant pain in the derriere. But once you get there the place is perfect for meeting old friends or making new ones.
