Update: The Catch Lubbock now says it plans to open Wednesday (January 13th) due to this weekend's possible winter weather.

Original story: The Catch is opening on Monday (January 11th), and Lubbock is over the moon.

They've been teasing everyone with previews of their delicious menu all week long on their Facebook page, which already boasts over 16,000 followers, and the suspense is killing me.

Patrons of the restaurant have shared tons of pictures of tasty meals, and I've got to say, this seafood spot is going to go hard. I cannot wait to get in there. It will take a few weeks to try every single thing on the menu, but I am up for the task.

I also really love that this is a fast-casual dining establishment and I don't have to dress up to eat there. Any place I can get some bangin' fried fish in my fat pants is a place I want to be.

The new restaurant is thrilled at the response from excited locals, and Pedro, the general manager, told 94.5 FMX: "The amount of love we have received from Lubbock before even opening has been so inspiring. We can't wait to meet all of our new friends and cook an amazing meal for you!! Doctor's orders, everyone needs a daily dose of vitamin sea."

You can get that dose of Vitamin Sea by stopping into their new location next week at 5111 82nd St. Be sure to follow them for updates, and don't forget to snap a shot of your first meal at The Catch for their Facebook page.
