Harrigan’s, opening originally in 1977, has been a standout restaurant to have a delicious meal in Lubbock. After a change of ownership in 2004 and a fire in early 2012, Harrigan’s has overcome challenges and improved their franchise (even opening a Harrigan’s in Odessa).
In February 2012, there was a small fire that produced extensive smoke damage to the restaurant, forcing the restaurant to close for several months. The wind pushed the smoke all over, meaning the ceilings, carpets, and upholstery had to all be replaced. After three and a half months, they reopened better and tastier than ever.
In addition to the main restaurant, Harrigan’s offers a couple of other neat features. There is the Memphis Room, which is a private banquet room. It seats up to 50 people and has modern technology features to accommodate business lunches/dinners, receptions, holiday parties, and any other event imaginable. Also, there is the Legends Lounge, which is a non-smoking bar. You can catch live music in this bar on Friday and Saturday nights. Happy hour inside the bar (4-8pm and 9pm-close) features great drink specials! The bar is open whenever the restaurant is, along with extended hours – til midnight on weekdays and til 2am on the weekends. Enjoy a few rounds of drinks with friends late into the night!
So, what’s Harrigan’s famous for? For starters, they have amazing mesquite-smoked prime rib. In the mood for a filet, ribeye, or NY strip? Harrigan’s flash-sears their steaks in a 1500 degree broiler for premium deliciousness. My personal recommendations/favorites… fried zucchini chips (can’t beat ‘em!), chicken provolone, and a Pometini to wash it all down. Seriously, their martinis are out of this world. Also, come by on a Sunday morning for brunch!
I really enjoy going to Harrigan’s. You will be very well taken care of and served excellent food. It’s a different eating experience than other chain restaurants in the area.
Special thanks to Meredith and the kind folks at Harrigan’s for being informative and offering a giveaway to YOU, our LITLites….
