Now on to our top performer.
"We've been waiting to come up to this area, just opened up June 19th," Kyle Walker said.
First opened in Abilene in 1997, Texas Steak Express has found a home in South Lubbock at 9810 Indiana. Owner Kyle Walker says he saw how well pizza delivery worked and wanted to do the same for char-broiled steaks.
"We deliver to the whole town. So just call from your house or business and we'll deliver you a steak or burger," Kyle said.
With gas prices so high, here's something else to sink your teeth into. "That seems to help them out, keeping that deliver free," Kyle said.
So just what is it that Steak Express delivers? "We use nothing but fresh choice meat, cook it to order when you call it in. Takes about 10-15 minutes to cook and about the same time to get it to your house," Kyle said.
And if beef's not what's for dinner, "We've got chicken, a great chef salad, we've got excellent grilled salmon, we do a skewered shrimp that goes over very well," Kyle said.
But when it comes to recommendations, Kyle sticks with the restaurants name, "Probably a rib eye steak or we sell a ton of our half pound cheese burgers, a ton of burgers," Kyle said.
