Yummy & Quick: Which Top Fast Food Chains Is Lubbock Missing Out On?
Lubbock is the land of 1000 restaurants, but did you know we have 36 out of the top 50 fast-food restaurants in the U.S.? That's pretty impressive, considering our mid-sized population and adjacency to nearly nowhere. That's a big part of the reason I feel that Lubbock is the perfect place to be a test market for fast food.
Even though we arguably have our "plates full" already, there are still plenty of fast food chains that have either come and gone or never were here that are favorites. Ask anyone from California, they all want an In-N-Out (fair warning: they won't stop talking about it); meanwhile, anyone from the Austin area will bemoan our lack of P. Terry's.
Here's a list of what we are missing from the Top 50, and a few honorable mentions that are not top 50 but totally crave-able here in Lubbock.
