Once upon a time, in the far-off land of 1930’s Brooklyn, New York, there lived a little boy named Michael Frank Cea. After learning all the secrets of great Italian cooking, Mike opened Orlando’s on October 15, 1965 in Lubbock, Texas, at the Avenue Q location, naming the restaurant after his maternal grandparents. Mike’s son David is still an owner and founding member of the Orlando’s organization. Loyd Turner, after his own adventures across the country in a 1971 VW Super Beetle with a bed inside, signed on as a partner and owner in 1978. Loyd’s wife Karen entered the scene in 1980, taking over the Ave. Q location in 1984, and she brings her unique voice to the board of directors. Jerol Fanta came to work as a cook in the fall of 1982, and is now a partner and the owner-on-site at the Indiana location. Under the leadership of David, Loyd, Karen, and Jerol, Orlando’s has continued to expand and flourish. We’re proud to still serve Mike’s legacy of unique Italian food to all the people who stop by.
