The Buddy Holly Center – WHERE ART & MUSIC COLLIDE
“Exhibitions and programs reflect the diverse cultural characteristics of the region and encourage interaction between artists and the community. The Center collects, preserves and interprets artifacts relevant to Lubbock’s most famous native son, Buddy Holly, as well as to other performing artists and musicians of West Texas. Changing exhibitions in the visual arts provide an arena for celebrating the technical virtuosity and creative talents of fine artists at work in a region distinguished by vast distances and a rich tradition of creative resources.The West Texas Walk of Fame, featuring the Buddy Holly statue, by sculptor Grant Speed, is located inside the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza, just west of the Center, on the corner of Crickets Avenue and 19th Street. The Plaza is open to the public dawn to dusk, year round. The West Texas Walk of Fame, and its induction process, are a project of Civic Lubbock, Inc.”
Cook’s Garage – Bar and Grill
“Cook’s Garage opened in April 2017 (5th of 5 family businesses). It started out as a “Man Cave” Yeaaahhhright….with a showroom for “REV LIMIT CUSTOMS” but…Rusty kept adding signs and then buildings to display them, so of course we had to add a kitchen to cook lunch for Family and Employees. Then, I turn around and soooM’body rented the space for Special Events! Like in early Spring we are home to the West Texas Roundup which is a pre ’63 traditional Hot Rod Show….I can’t catch a “BRAKE”! A few months later, I blink and…Holy Busted Radiators WE are running a full Restaurant and Bar! Jesus take the wheel…Not sure how we ended up here, but it sure is fun! LIVE MUSIC, GOOD FOOD, with a COOL ATMOSPHERE and we are Super Excited to share Our Collection of Cool Cars, Vintage, Porcelain, and Neon Signs! We are open TUESDAY – SATURDAY!!! 11am to sometimes Midnight.”
Evie Mae’s Pit BBQ – Top 10 Best BBQ In Texas
“Evie Mae’s shiny new strip-center spot has been open a little more than a year, but visitors from nearby Lubbock don’t seem to miss the food truck (conveniently, the new place is about a quarter mile from the old location). An early arrival meant we not only avoided a wait but also were able to secure one of the coveted beef ribs, massive in size, perfectly tender, and with just the right amount of bark. Ditto for the spectacular burnt ends, which actually bested the somewhat undersalted brisket. Three choices for sausage, including spicy green chile and German, satisfied everyone in our group. We pondered a huge array of sides and desserts as we moved along the cafeteria line, deciding on subtly spicy green-chile cheese grits, tangy smoked beans, and—to seal the deal—creamy coconut pie” – Texas Monthly
