Lamberts

BarbecueDowntown$10-$25 First Plates 

Once the historic landmark anchoring Liberty Lunch’s footprint, Lamberts was established in 2006 by Larry McGuire, Tom Moorman Jr., and Will Bridges in the revamped J.P. Schneider Store, built in 1873. Now it's a legit barbecue joint downstairs, and a swanky bar upstairs, complete with a stage for enjoying nightly live music, local beers, and slow smoked barbecue.

Stubb's

BarbecueDowntown$10-$25

Milestone 20th anniversary hitting in 2016, Stubb’s filled the void left by the 1999 closing of Liberty Lunch, itself the local replacement for the Armadillo World Headquarters. Taking its name and recipes from legendary Lubbock cook Christopher “Stubb” Stubblefield, who established the first Stubb’s in his hometown in 1968, the dual-level venue and celebrated barbecue joint boasts indoor and outdoor stages, with the latter holding upward of 2,000 souls. Booked by C3 Presents co-founder Charles Attal and unsung ACL Fest talent doyenne Amy Corbin, both stages host names big (Bob Dylan) and bigger (Metallica).
