LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Our first stop in this weeks Food for Thought,  the top is Lujan's at 10101 Slide Road. "It's really good. It's def validation for what we do every single day," owner Stacy Lujan said.

This popular Mexican food restaurant will soon celebrate its 20th year in the Hub City, "We're really proud of being where we are and being here in Lubbock." And Stacy says all the credit belongs to her staff. "They work very hard, and they stay busy; I'm super proud of them." 

It's a grand slam for our next stop! Home Plate Diner at 5217 82nd Street hits a home run with their last health inspection. 

The building might be small, but this kitchen is big on perfection. Lil Bigham's Smokehouse at 1823 Buddy Holly had zero critical violations. 

No bull about it, it's another top performance for Lone Star Beef Jerky at 2314 Colgate Ave.Our next stop serves up a lip smackin' plate of perfection. Rib Crib at 8211 Slide Rd is also a repeat top performer. 

Whether you go for the theater or the museum the Science Spectrum at 2579 S. Loop 289 concocted an inspection fit for the stars. 

Next we go where many people start their day. Slide Breakfast House at 2907 Slide Road sizzles with perfection as they serve up another perfect score.

Not only do they look perfect, they are! Edible Arrangements at 8215 University designed a flawless inspection. 

And we wrap up with a sweet treat. SpoonFull at 411 University Ave gets ready to celebrate their one year anniversary as a top performer. It's a self-serve yogurt shop, and that means you can get as much as you want of whatever you want.

"It's all yogurt, and we have two sorbets. We have 14 different flavors. We keep some constant flavors year around, and then other flavors we alternate every few months. You pay by the ounce. It's 35 cents an ounce," Kevin Devore said. "Basically it's a lot of fun you can get whatever you want."From fruit to fruity pebbles, your choice of toppings seems almost endless.

Kevin says their daily routine keeps this shop at the top with each day starting off by cleaning the machines, "We also mop twice a day, clean up when it's slower during the day, keep all the toppings filled fresh. All the fruits are cut daily so that keeps them from going bad."
