This is an interesting restaurant that caters to families, college crowds and anyone that enjoys Italian food. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic meal, don’t go here! The place is crowded and noisy. But if you want fast service and good food in...More

Orlando’s is a Lubbock institution! Consistently good food every visit. Large variety of cocktails to please everyones taste. Service is always great at the Indiana location.

There's nothing special about this place. Very little of the menu is fresh. Dining out should be an experience that you can't create at home. Orlando's isn't a destination restaurant mostly because they serve unimaginative frozen food.More

To be accurate, there is nothing special about this place to you. To the loyal customers who have been eating with us since 1965, and their kids, and their kid's kids, we are very special indeed. As owners who work on the premises and read...More

Wow. This is the best Italian food that I have had since leaving NY 40 years ago. Fantastic sauce on my ravioli. The portions are very generous and there is garlic bread too boot. The meal also comes with a choice of soup or salad....More

Went there based on the great reviews. Only ordered the standard Lasagna, assuming you can't mess that up & it's the staple of any Italian Restaurant. The salad is not Italian... it's a normal dinner salad, with lots of cabbage. The Italian dressing was good,...More

Sorry you did not like our food. We've served the same lasagna the same way for 53 years now, and cheese has always been extra. Mushrooms have always been in the sauce. Thanks for at least trying us!

My husband and I really enjoy eating here. There’s lots of variety in dishes with salads, pastas & sauces. I’m vegan & love their spaghetti marinara with mushrooms. Prices are reasonable & service is always friendly and prompt. Recommended.

Orlando has been in Lubbock for many years. It is a popular favorite and is usually busy. We ate recently with a group of 8 people. Each of us ordered something different and we all thought it was excellent.

Their jingle says it all: "O solo Mio, with a a jalapeño", which translates to Italian food with a southwest flair. A good example is the green chili chicken linguine. Simple fresh ingredients prepared to order. So very satisfying. Orlando's is locally owned but it...More
