2017 is shaping up to be a truly exciting year of anticipated restaurant openings in Lubbock!

The roundup of 10 (including two distinct Tropical Smoothie Cafes) looks to be a wide variety of established restaurants who have been serving robust food choices in other hot spots across Texas and the US. So we have proven track records and some very interesting options, most with websites to explore and anticipate.

I've spent some quality time investigating menus and am really hungry now as I write this. Personally, my most anticipated restaurants feature salads, greens and healthy and lean things. There are plenty of these to look forward to.

But don't worry, plenty of hearty comfort food and solid fixins will be arriving in Lubbock in 2017 also, according to my research on Lubbock in the Loop and the various restaurants' website announcements.

Please check out the list and let me know what your favorites are!
