Revisited after 30 years. I used to have family in Amarillo who would take us there when we visited from NY. They see it as the tourist spot but we experienced it as a place to say "I've been there" when it airs on the travel channel or when bragging to co-workers of your odd-ball travels. It's an expensive visit for what you get but I already knew that going in. My husband who has never been to TX was just thrilled to be there especially when one table of guys took the 72 ounce steak challenge while we were there. While locals leave their cups on the table, we proudly display our souvenir cups at home! I could almost see envision my family members from 30 years ago laughing at what touristy fools we were but we had a great afternoon and, although broke the bank, we made memories for my own son. Now he can say "I've been there too!"
