If you are looking for a taste of the Old West, Cowboys, Texas and fun, this is it! It seems that every traveler passing through Amarillo on I-40 stops at the Big Texas or the Cadillac Ranch, or both! Enjoy live music of the old west or give the singers a special request. Looking for Texas souvenirs? You can find... More

We built up the Big Texan in our minds when planning this trip and the experience in general was underwhelming. My steak had about a fistful of fat and gristle that was inedible. I realize that a ribeye is going to have a fair amount of fat for flavor but I've had several ribeyes before(just ask my wife)and this amount... More

Great food and fun atmosphere! We ate here on Christmas Day during our drive through Amarillo to Colorado. We were surprised to see how packed it was with patrons on Christmas Day, but we know why now...THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS!

We come here nearly every time we pass through town if we possibly can. In fact, we try to plan the trip to stay nearby so we can visit this famous little gem. I love the atmosphere, the service and most of all, the steak never disappoints. Last time, I had the 18 oz. rib eye -- cooked to perfection!!!... More

While en route to Tucson, AZ, we decided to pit-stop for some steak... It was the best lunch we'd had in a long time. The food was affordable & the kids loved the hats and boots they received with their meals. Everything tastes delicious & it the friendly waitstaff took care of us in a reasonable time. However, we were... More

After seeing miles and miles of billboards advertising the Big Texan, we figured we had to stop. It is definitely a novelty type place. I had ribs, and they were good, but I've certainly had better. The environment is fun and staff is very friendly.

If your in the area around you gotta try this restaurant. Typical Texas decor and great steaks. Entertainment at night. And a steak so big , if you can eat it all, it's free.

Hubby and I had a prime rib and a fillet. Service was excellent and so was the food. The whiskey stout beer is the one to go for.

A really kitchy place that belongs in the heartland of America. Straight out of a scene from a movie like Family Vacation, the food is surprisingly good. There is always something going on here from live music, to a large gift shop, to someone trying to eat a huge steak against the clock. Definitely worth the stop to take in... More
