Restaurants in Amarillo, TX

Amarillo boasts good cowboy BBQ and several places that make a big deal of hamburger cookery, but the most compelling attraction is Cadillac Ranch: a bunch of 1950s Caddies planted in a row, nose down, by the side of what once was Route 66. Just east of Cadillac Ranch, an equally iconic roadside attraction is a blaring, glaring, theme-park of a restaurant, The Big Texan, where you get a 72-ounce steak for free … if you eat it in an hour or less. The good news is that normal-size steaks at the Big Texan are damn good. Far less showy, but true-West to the core, is the Amarillo Stockyard Grill, serving breakfast and lunch on weekdays only. Tip: come for lunch on a Monday, which is when the weekly cattle auction is held.
