Acuff Steaks - Acuff, Texas

Cool sign!
Chicken fry! -plate one
High tech menu!

Last Friday while we were in Lubbock we took my uncle out to eat at the place of his choice. It was his birthday and he was kind enough to take us in for a few days. The destination - Acuff Steakhouse, which is about 10 miles east of Lubbock and south of Idalou (where I lived when I was 1). My uncle first ate there as a kid back in 1968 after one of my dad's football games at Tech...I believe the UT game...Tech won by the way. Anyway, this place from the outside looks like a complete dive. It pretty much is. The food on the other hand, was awesome. We went on all you can eat catfish and chicken fried steak night. Oh mama! I had 3 plates. The banana pudding for dessert was about the best I've ever had. So if you are ever on the east side of Lubbock, just drive east on 4th street until you get to Acuff, Texas then loosen your belt a few notches and get to work. Don't be scared by the rusted sign, cracked adobe walls, and pot holes. Thanks for the tip Mike!

  1. Can't believe that someone else loves the Acuff Steakhouse as much as I do. I grew up in Idalou. Moved to DFW about 5 years ago, but I do miss that AYCE catfish. :)
    Enjoying the blog. Keep it up!


I always like to hear what you think.....drop me a note!
