The Steaks are "Bigger" in Texas at the Big Texan

February 11, 2009

The slogan goes that “Things are Bigger in Texas” and at the Big Texan in Amarillo the steaks are definitely bigger. For hungry travelers the Big Texan has a BIG 72 oz. steak. That’s four and half pounds of beef! And if you can eat it in sixty minutes your meal is free. My waitress says they often have those that can finish the steak in one hour but the young slim fellow that was attempting to eat the entire thing while I was there threw in the towel or should I say threw in the napkin before the hour was up.

This historic restaurant located on Route 66 has been a favorite of travelers and locals since the doors opened in 1960. Its like stepping into the wild west with a western decor and staff that dishes out Texan hospitality. The Big Texan is open 7:00 am-10:30 pm seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Big Texan Steakhouse is located at 7701 I-40 East in Amarillo. Toll Free number is 1-800-657-7177 or 806-372-6000. Advance reservations are taken for groups.
