Orlando's is technically an Italian restaurant, but that didn't matter to Texas Monthly. The Lubbock restaurant has one of the best burgers in the state!

According to their website, the $7.99 "Cheeseburger In Paradise" made the grade and came in at number 10 on the list.*

I can't personally comment as I haven't had one of them (yet!), but it sounds simply amazing.

Here's what they had to say about Orlando's burgers.

Orlando’s is an Italian restaurant, but don’t count that against the Cheeseburger in Paradise. It might as well be a burger restaurant that happens to sell great spaghetti. Two tasty four-ounce top sirloin patties come crowned with cheese, lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. The bun is a toasted Italian roll brushed with butter and mayonnaise. It’s got a crunchy exterior and a warm chewy interior. As Jimmy Buffett would say, “Well, good God Almighty, which way do I steer?”


Orlando's Lubbock is located at 2402 Avenue Q.

*Editor's Note: While we know this list is from 2009, it's still something we feel is something for Lubbock to be proud of achieving.
