All that advertising and kitsch works! I have stopped here several times...it's not really the place I would consider for a return visit unless I was taking someone there for their first time. I have had breakfast...hearty and tasty but nothing out of the ordinary... and dinner...hearty and tasty...you get the idea. Kids will love the rustic western village and... More

A great night for all the family, with good wholesome meals. It is a fun atmosphere to keep everybody happy and involved. With the amusement alley and shops, plus the restaurant, you will be entertained for hours

Big Texan was a great experience because they have great food and lots of choices... It was also really cool watching people attempt the 72oz Steak! For Dessert we had Carrot and Chocolate cake! THE PIECES WERE HUGE!

We went expecting the worst kinds of tourist trap. It was GOOD!! There is a gift shop, motel, and steaks. If you can eat the 72 oz, my hat off to you. I ate a 8 oz and was full. The kids enjoyed the hats which came with their meals, the food selection was great and fairly reasonable, annnd..they had... More

Service can range from decent to terrible ranging on the luck of the draw on waiters. The food is overpriced for the quality, unless you get a lunch special. A lone guitar player ranges around the audience playing requests and his reception depends on whether you find him a welcome guest, or an annoyance to your meal. If someone is... More

Go on your birthday and you get a free steak dinner. The food is very good but it is also pricey. Service is sometimes not very good. Great atmosphere and home brew. Good fun factor and of course the famous free 72 ounce steak dinner. Never cashed in on birthday deal. Maybe this year. Long time Amarillo tradition.

We had heard about the Big Texan so had to visit when we were in Amarillo. Its a fun touristy place to go and if you are traveling with kids they will really enjoy it. We went for lunch and all I can say is I hope the dinners and and the famous 72 ounce steak are better than the... More
