Steakhouse
In 1960, R. J. “Bob” Lee opened The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo Texas on Route 66, the “Mother Road”. It’s distinctive architecture soon became recognized across the Mother Road as a good stopping place for great steaks grilled over an open flame. The Big Texan is famous for the FREE 72oz steak challenge, which includes eating a salad, baked potato, shrimp cocktail and 72 ounces of beef! Stop in and have a one of a kind experience with large, juicy steaks, cowboys and cowgirls, and take a dive into the Old Wild West!

The Big Texan has more to offer than just big steaks! Stay with us either at our RV Park, Cabins, Wagons, Airstream, and AIRBNBs on property.

    What’s good? The steak! Even when it’s cold. Even when it’s cold SECOND time around! What’s not so good? You guessed- the service. It’s not the kitchens fault because I’ve got pictures of about a dozen platters lined up waiting for pickup. Mebbe it’s because we sat upstairs? We chased the broccoli, we chased the tomato and onion and then we gave up. Sammy the floor manager was courteous and positive and tendered a discount. So….. be prepared to hustle a bit to ensure the service matches up to the food

    Macaroni and cheese not very tasty for being homemade. Also asked for A1 sauce from 3 different serves who walked past. Our server finally came eventually, one serve brought me some of their steak sauce, thank you we tipped her separately and then our server eventually brought some. I was nearly done with my steak. Dogs are allowed at table while people are eating, not my cup of tea!

    Showed up early for our reservation and they kept seating customers that had just arrived. Very disorganized. Took us 30 minutes after our scheduled reservation time to get seated. After waiting 40 minutes for my steak they mistakenly gave it to another table and had to wait another while. Server was apologetic, but still very horrible experience.

    The atmosphere is fun and a place you have to visit once. Our server was fantastic. Let’s talk about the food it was pricey and average tasting. One of my side dishes was beefsteak tomatoes. The tomato’s were tasteless and still had lots of green on them. The appitizers were not very good. On a positive note the steak was cooked beautifully and tasted great.

    Interesting place. Steaks were very tender. Huge portions. Fried shrimp was tender and crisply. Duo walking around playing guitar and singing to each table and chatting. Fun atmosphere.

    We had to wait 30 minutes to get seated. We had reservations. My prime rib was under cooked. Massive amount of people. Not worth it.
