If you find your Christmas meal destroyed by the neighbor's dogs, you have more options than goose in Amarillo (I promise my A Christmas Story references will end on 12/26). Here's a list of restaurants open on Christmas day.

  • IHOP
  • Denny's
  • Waffle House
  • Starbucks
  • Buffalo Wild Wings

Hours may vary at some locations, so a quick check on Facebook or Google would be well advised. You could also call ahead and make sure.

Cracker Barrel will have meals you can order ahead of time. They have "Heat & Serve" meals which you order online and pick up before Christmas. Details are on their website.

There are also always buffet options available, if you're into that kind of thing. A quick check of their website shows that Furr's buffet will be open until 6 PM on Christmas day. They'll have roast beef, ham, pork chops, popcorn shrimp, pies, and jalapeno poppers.

If you know of any other restaurants open on Christmas day, let us know so we can add them to our list.
