Who doesn't love a good throwback?

Welcome to 23 at Sneed, where remembering the history of Texas Tech University and getting some top-flight eats is all wrapped up into one new package. 

Catering to the east side of campus, the new dining venue has a little something for everybody, all built through traditional dining hall theme lines. 

What does that mean? We're glad you asked. 

As we look toward the next century at Texas Tech, 23 at Sneed reaches back through the years and pulls together some of the favorite dining options from the university's past. Even the name, 23 at Sneed, is a call back to the founding year of Texas Tech. 

Each concept in 23 at Sneed links to a dining option stretching as far back as the 1980s. Old favorites like the Breakfast Court from Wiggins and the Ranch Lander Grill from Bledsoe/Gordon/Sneed are being brought back to life with this innovative new approach.

By pulling in traditional favorites and adding a new twist or two, 23 at Sneed is setting itself up as a premier dining destination on campus.

Basically, Texas Tech is adding a flavor to the dining experience and making sure current students get all the good stuff from days gone by.

There may even be a visiting parent or two who wants to swing by and check out some of their old favorites. 

“We are very happy with the results,” said Michael Betzold, an associate director in Hospitality Services who helped design the space. “Iconic wall features, epic Red Raider color choices and beautiful finishes all create a vibrant and attractive dining venue where exciting fusions of food and design offer our residents, guests and staff a place to sit back and enjoy a meal with friends.

“We are already seeing a great response from our students as the word gets out about our newest retail dining location serving the east side of campus. We hope they come enjoy food with friends, take a selfie in front of the illuminated Masked Rider and Traditional Double T, sing the portion of the fight song that hangs on the wall, and just take a moment to really take in this great experience and time in their lives. Lubbock and Texas Tech University are something special to cherish and we at Hospitality Services are proud and honored to be a part of our students' collegiate experience.”
