As you may be aware it is home to the 72oz Steak Challenge.  This is one giant piece of meat with all the fixings.  Thousands of people from all over the world stop in Amarillo each year to have a nice meal at the Big Texan.

It's a chance to stop and try the challenge or have a smaller meal or watch someone try the challenge.  I'll admit it's a site to see.  You might just pull into the parking lot to check out the giant dinosaur/Godzilla statute in the parking lot.  Maybe you just want to stop at the gift shop and grab a souvenir.  Watch out you just might run into a giant rattlesnake.

They aren't only a restaurant, as mentioned above they have a large gift shop, plus their own brewery.  You can grab a beer or some gelato or fudge without evening being set for a meal. You can try your shooting skills at their unique shooting gallery, or if you're tired grab one of their hotel rooms and take a break from your travels.

The Big Texan is all about the holidays and if you don't want to cook, or you're traveling through on the holidays, you can stop in and try their Holiday Buffet, guaranteed to fill you up.

It's a great place to celebrate the holiday season and grab a steak, burger, or even some calf fries.

Big Texan

The Big Texan is a sight to see, especially during the holidays. They know how to decorate. Even the bear that greets you at the front door likes to get into the holiday spirit.
