Lubbock Pancake House

Unless you're a redneck who doesn't mind an 80+-year-old stranger coming up to your table and hitting on your wife, stay out of the Pancake House at 510 Avenue Q in Lubbock. There are several old fossils, apparently related to the management of the place, who have nothing better to do than sit at the counter and drink coffee all day, flirt with aging waitresses and leave their counter to try to make friends with any attractive woman who enters, regardless of whether she is married and accompanied. After being asked to leave our table several times, and threatened with bodily harm, he still didn't get it. This one guy, apparently an old, retired farmer, with a baseball-type working cap and khakis, perhaps thinks he's in the recreation room of some senior citizens' RV park and thinks that everyone there comes to socialize--and hitting on someone's wife is socially acceptable, not to mention intruding on the privacy of total strangers who want only to eat, and get on the road.

The main culprit appears lucid, but his behavior is a nuisance. His teen-like behavior is, I suspect, emboldened because he is related to management. If you kick his ***, you'll probably have to fight everybody in the place, not to mention trying to deal with the not-so-cosmopolitan LPD. The food isn't much anyway, so I advise: Stay away from the Pancake House. It appears to be a hangout for old rednecks living in a time warp of the 1950s who should be interned on a funny farm.

Don't suggest a BBB complaint. These cheap joints are all members, and the BBB is there to protect those who pay their dues, not those complaining, contrary to popular opinion.
