Lubbock’s Best Restaurant You’ll Find No Where Else Is. . .

Cultural Index Thursday is back!

After taking a little time off, the Cultural Index has returned. For those who don’t know, I used to host a little sports call-in show for a couple of decades. One of the staples was C.I.T. We felt like the time is right to bring it back here on That Dang Ol’ Show’s site. We have always loved the feedback on the Cultural Index Question you guys have given us over the years and look forward to you making this a regular part of your week again!

So, this week we ponder the question of Lubbock’s best non-chain restaurant. It could have multiple locations in the Hubbaplex, but no where else. We’ve got a lot of great stand-alones here in Lubbock. We’ve often said Lubbock’s slogan could be, “The City That Eats!”.

So, what are some of your favorites?

Post your answers here on the site, but be sure and let your friends on Facebook and Twitter know that the Cultural Index is back!

Cody Canada And The Departed Vs. Cody Canada And Cross Canadian Ragweed. This Week’s “Battle” Is A Friendly Fight!

With The Departed rolling into Lubbock this week, we figured our weekly “Battle” segment on That Dang Ol’ Show should celebrate the music of Cody Canada and friends. We’ve been fans since the last century around these parts, going back to the days of a Tuesday night show at The Blue Light with a three dollar cover. Trying to pick a favorite out of their works is tough, but that’s what we do on the “Battle”.

This week’s “Battle” pits Cross Canadian Ragweed’s “17″ against The Departed’s version of “Skyline Radio”.

Here to help us break-down these two songs is our old friend, Scott Fitzgerald. Scott is the Jimmy The Greek of Texas Country music. He’s also seen Ragweed/Departed nearly as many times as their sound-man…


So, give it a listen and then give us your vote in this week’s battle. Be sure and let us know if you’re gonna be at the show on Friday night so we can say hello!

We talked about that and more with Motorsport.com’s Nick DeGroot this week on his semi-world famous Green-White-Checker segment on That Dang Ol’ Show.


While no known photos of Nick exist, we are working on changing that in the future.

So, what do y’all think? Can Haas do it?

Our friends at Chicken Fried Buffalo are spreading knowledge again. Be sure and follow their work if you’re not already doing so! We get a little jumpy with all the EPL talk, but now that we know it’s not contagious we are fine with it.

Hello friends.

The harsh winter has finally broken on the Niagara Frontier and it looks like we might only get a couple more chilly days in Buffalo.  This weekend is gorgeous and next weekend will open the grilling season for Chicken Fried Buffalo.  On Friday, I will be headed to the palatial estate high above Lake Moriane in Hamilton (NY).  It has been five long months since I have used my trusty Weber and Master Forge smoker.

Of course, I did head south for some spring training last week.  There was an O6 Racing all-day singing and prayer meeting held April 2-7 at Texas Motor Speedway.  It is good to get some of the rust off the wagon before you head into another important grilling season.  The Smoke Master from Matador Ron Cox had the Double-T smoker filled with mesquite and he did some of his best…
