We have visited this restaurant twice now.  We passed through Amarillo, Texas on a couple of our trips now. Anyone who has passed through or been to Amarillo knows about the Big Texas Steak Ranch. It is a landmark in this area.

You just can’t miss this place. If you are driving there are several billboards along the way. If you stay in the local hotels then you will see the advertising throughout the hotel.

We actually stopped here twice on one of our trips. We had some nice weather on the way there for some nice outdoor pictures. We ate there on the way back but it was raining pretty good.

This place is great to stop by even if you do not eat. Its kind of like a Western amusement park. There are some fun photo opportunities inside and out.

They also have a large gift shop with every kind of Texas souvenir you can imagine. There are shirts, cowboy hats, and numerous other gift items. There is even a rattlesnake in the back for your viewing pleasure – no petting!!

The atmosphere is true Texas as you can see. If you have a fear of stuffed wildlife , this place may not be for you.We have eaten here twice. The food was as good as you would hope.

Then there is the famous 72 ounce steak offer. If you can eat the steak and all the fixin’s in one hour, it’s free. You see signs for this everywhere – check the gallery pictures. They have offered this since 1962. I am a lite eater and did not even consider it. Note the 60 minute clocks above the kitchen in the dining area.

 

 

All in all this is a must stop when traveling through Amarillo. It is a true landmark and has great food. Be aware that this place gets really busy during dinner hours.
