My family and I were recommend this place by a friend and went there for dinner tonight as our first Texas meal. I had the 24 ounce steak, loaded baked potato & beans with a dark beer, it was amazing!! The service was excellent, prompt and the atmosphere was upbeat, friendly and fun. I recommend this place to everyone passing... More

The best steaks in the world. I am not a big meat eater and didnt order one but my husband and two sons did, I tried theirs and was truley upset I didnt get one. They were very friendly and there was a little gift shop and games our kids got to play.

You can't miss the Big Texan. There are signs for miles advertising the free 72 ounce steak. The signs alone may have been enough to entice me to stop, but my wife and I were venturing across Route 66 and this was a planned visit. It's a great place. It's Americana at its finest. I wasn't expecting a great meal.... More

As a vegetarian I was going to grab dinner before heading here as my friends really insisted they wanted to do the 72oz steak challenge. I ended up running out of time to grab food first and had resigned myself to having to go hungry but was incredibly pleasantly surprised by their vegie offerings. Yes like most steak houses they...

The food isn't bad, in fact it's mostly quite good. But the prices are a bit much for my pocket book. And quite honestly, there are better places to eat here in Amarillo. But because of the years in this location and the 72oz steak fame, it's worth one visit.

This is a restaurant that wants to be "typically" Texan. The decor is straight out of the wild west. There are opportunities to take "typical" pictures out front and in the lobby and gift shop. The food is Texan sized too! Huge steaks, chicken, seafood accompanied by great fresh bread and a wide variety of sides, most made on site.... More
