So yesterday while surfing the web I stumble upon a few different reddit threads arguing about something I never gave much thought about which city is better Amarillo or Lubbock?


Honestly I think i like Lubbock's traffic better only because it has a better flow to it. I'm not having to stop every 3 seconds because one light is green while the next is still red. And guess what? I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Amarillo and Lubbock both have good places to eat. Lubbock has Caprock Cafe, Cast Iron Grill, One Guys Pizza, Spanky's, Orlando's, and Double Nickel. Amarillo has YCSF, Tyler's BBQ, Coyote Bluff Cafe, Youngblood's Cafe, Ye Olde Pancake Station, and the Golden Light Cafe.

Stuff that makes each city bad

Let's start with Amarillo. My biggest issues with Amarillo are with the city council and construction everywhere I look. My biggest issues with Lubbock are the dust storms and ERCOT.

Stuff one city has that the other wants

Now this one is mostly for Amarillo because I really don't know anything that Lubbock wants. I know they wanted a Braum's but they just got that and I don't think they care that we have affiliated baseball in Amarillo because they have Tech. So let's get started.

  1. New concert venue
  2. A H-E-B
  3. Cheesecake Factory
  4. A true loop around the city

Who wins?

Truthfully no city wins both cities are so alike it's hard to truly compare them to get a true winner. Yeah both cities have their differences but those differences are not big enough to tell the two apart. Truthfully Lubbock has everything that they have because of Texas Tech but how much Amarillo is growing it won't be long before we get everything that they have plus some.
