    Coyote Bluff Cafe

    So this is to be expected. Coyote Bluff is more than a local burger joint, it's a nationally-recognized food paradise ever since Man vs. Food came to town. It gets 4.5 stars.

    Bangkok Tokyo

    This seems like a lesser-known spot for Thai food. Amarillo has such a variety of hibachi and sushi bars that it's easy to overlook Bangkok Tokyo. To those who have been, however, it gets 4.5 stars.

    El Manantial

    Amarillo is not lacking in hole-in-the-wall Mexican food restaurants. However, there are over 100 rave reviews about El Manantial that make it stand out among the rest. It gets 4.5 stars on Yelp.
