A coworker and I who were both in Amarillo for work decided to try this place because it is close to her hotel and also she has always wanted to come here. The atmosphere is fun but that's about all I can recommend it for. There was a musical trio walking around playing for tips, which was awkward. Why doesn't... More

Always stop here on way through Amarillo. Beef is great and their Carrot Cake is to die for. Also purchase several pieces to take with me.

Yes you will see signs nearly 100 miles before you get here. Yes it is a tourist trap. Yeah it may be considered by some to be a bit pricey. Despite all of that however they do throw out some pretty tasty steaks. My filet was cooked to perfection and melt in your mouth tender. Service was outstanding as well.... More

Food was generic with no flavor. Staff was sub par. Waitress would disappear, I finally had to get someone else to take care of us. The atmosphere was great but not worth the price. I could have fed my family twice at other places for their prices.

Worth the drive. The steaks, especially the ribeye, are excellent. The homemade dressings and sauces wonderful. The service fast and friendly. The carrot cake... get the carrot cake. If your to full take it to go. The slice is huge. My husband and I shared it. Half that night and half the next day. The Gelato also great. The salted... More

This place is really very crowded and very noisy but it's fun. It's not just a restaurant this is a whole experience. So go and check out the gift shop and shoot a few rounds at the arcade and enjoy a song by the wandering musicians (don't forget to tip them). You can even grab some gelato while you wait.... More

We have lived in the Amarillo area for about 2 years and have never visited the Big Texan, so we decided too before we left town. It was not as good as expected. I had the man vs food. Steak was over cooked, I gave the shrimp to my husband and he said they were frozen and not tasty. I... More

Fun place, casual dining, known for their steaks. Crowds can be large with long waits and this place is huge. Thanksgiving day 3:00 p.m. 1hr. 30 min. wait.

We were lucky enough to be seated on the balcony overlooking the "eating contest" below. The steaks were delicious. The services was excellent. We had such a great time, we went back the very next night.
