Just because you don’t have an international trip planned anytime soon doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a bit of international cuisine. Lubbock is full of local restaurants with tasty dishes from all over the world. Here are five global restaurants we love in Lubbock. Find them + their deals on Towny (or on the mobile app if you’re on-the-go)!

  1. First stop on the itinerary? Italy! Enjoy delicious Italian cuisine when you eat at Italian Garden – a family owned and operated restaurant with specials like chicken milanese, shrimp tortellini, veal piccata, and so many other flavorful eats. P.S. – they’ll cater your events with special menus for large groups of 20 people or more!

  2. Try a true multi-cultural experience with a fusion of Japanese, Hawaiian, and other Asian-inspired tastes. Gohan Japanese Fusion makes food fast, easy and delicious! So, if you’re a Texas Tech student on-the-go or just in need of a quick meal during the day Gohan Japanese Fusion has you covered.

  3. Take your stomach just south of the border to Texas Taco Company for signature tacos, fresh salads, and chips with salsa, queso or guacamole. The food is delish AND they’ve got a full bar on the covered and enclosed patio.

  4. Fresh sushi + hibachi-cooked meats + reasonable pricing...sounds like a win! O’Hana Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar has all of these winning features and more for a tasty Japanese meal you won’t forget.

  5. You’ve taken your palate around the world. Now, bring it back home with tasty American eats from Cook's Garage. Enjoy chicken fried steak, hot wings, cobb salad, and other entrees that remind you of the comforts of home. When you eat at Cook’s Garage, you’ll also be treated to fun live music and events!
