Caprock Cafe opened in September 1997, and quickly became a favorite watering hole for the center of Lubbock. When the United Spirit arena opened in October 1999, Caprock Cafe became a convenient spot to meet before or after games and events there. On December 1, 2008, Caprock Cafe opened its second location in Rockridge Plaza at 82nd & Slide. Both locations are Smoke-Free. Caprock Cafe celebrates over 15 years of serving Lubbock's best char-broiled half-pound burgers and cold draft beer. So cold in fact, Caprock Cafe won the Lubbock Avalanche Journal's "Best of Lubbock" contest in 1998, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 as the "Best Place to Have a Beer!" in Lubbock! A fact we are very proud of and never take for granted! Thanks go out to all you Lubbock beer drinkers!
