Man, this one hurts. Raspados Colimas (2203 Clovis Rd) has decided to call it quits after a string of Mexican restaurant closures in Lubbock over the past week. The Colimas located at 1308 50th St. is owned by different folks and is NOT closing.

La Chavena announced it was closing earlier this week as did Rangel's. As sad as those closures are, Colimas hits me hard because they saved my hungover life on multiple occasions. They were a favorite of Tech kids for years, who lined up out the door to receive that life-giving and oh-so-delicious nourishment. Honestly, I could go for a torta and an aqua fresca right now.

Raspados Colima gave the following reason for the closure:

We are going to be closing the restaurant for a while so we can pursue other interests. As you all know we are a family owned business and some of us have decided to go follow our other dreams.

They went on to clarify that they would still be available for catering and events. Honestly, that explanation sounds rather hopeful for a fan of their food like me. Perhaps a food truck or another location is in the works?

You still have this weekend to try their delicious street tacos, tortas, enormous burritos, nachos, creamas, aqua frescas, corn cups (seriously, get the corn cup), and other amazing treats.

I truly wish this incredibly talented and kind family the best in all of their future endeavors. Whatever they choose to do, I'm sure they will be excellent at it, as they've already proven how excellent they are with Raspados Colima.
