Years ago (back in the 60s and 70s), my parents used to take me and my brothers to a place on (if I remember right...) 19th near LHS, named Bruce's Aztec Inn for Mexican food every Friday night. When Bruce closed the place in the early 70s, some of the recipies went to a place called Country Kitchen, and they've been closed too since the 70s or 80s. But the Aztec Inn's food was the best Mexican food I've ever had.

Well, I haven't lived in Lubbock since the early 80s but my wife and I do travel back to Lubbock six or eight times a year. So my question is this: Aside from Abuelo's, what is a very, very good Mexian food place in Lubbock nowadays?

I remember that the Amstad Cafe (downtown) used to be superb for lunch; but are they even there anymore?

Wow - how well I remember Bruce's Aztec Inn. The food was exceptional. I was at Texas Tech 65-68, and worked as host for Bruce three years. He was an fabulous person to work for - tough, but always willing to teach and give of his time and resources, if needed. One of the best things I remember was during Basketball season. As the dorms did not serve food on Sunday nights back then, and there was always a game on Saturday - Bruce always fed the entire team on Sunday night. If they won the game on Saturday, they would get a full steak dinner - if they lost, they got to choose from the regular Mexican fare menu. I got to know many of the players, coaches, as well as a host of Lubbock business and civi leaders during my years there. I could really go for a plate of Bruce's stacked beef enchiladas right now here in Montana.
