Harrigan's Re-Opens in Lubbock

Nearly one year after closing its doors, a popular Lubbock restaurant is back open. Harrigan's closed in October of last year when its parent company filed for bankruptcy.

Memphis Place Mall hasn't been the same since Harrigan's closed, but now the favorite steak house that was here for 26 years is open for business again. It became official at a ribbon cutting on Monday morning. City leaders, new management and excited citizens gathered for the ceremony.

Two Lubbock businessmen bought Harrigan's and the all the rights including the original menu and recipes. So when you come here, it will probably seem very familiar as they've worked hard to keep Harrigan's exactly what it was.

"Everybody I talked to before we opened up said they have a memory here. It's an anniversary or a birthday party or a first date, so everyone had a story and we're hoping to re-create that with the atmosphere we have and that's why we didn't change much. It's relaxed and you get great service," says Rice Horkey, Harrigan's Co-Owner.

Many of the old staff came back, including a cook and three managers, and the new owners are hoping to eventually open Harrigan's again in Amarillo and Albuquerque.
