We had to stop here during out Route 66 trip. Well, I can at least say I've been. The food was average, the same can be said of the service. My prime rib was barely warm, my friend's medium rare steak was overdone, my husband's order was completely wrong but he ate it anyway so that he didn't have to... More

I had a really good big prime rib. If passing through or staying in town you should try it out. You may get to see some idiot try a 72 oz steak with all the fixings. Also on occasion they have live music.

My friend couldn't wait to tell me about this place as soon as I mentioned we were doing Route 66. A 72oz steak challenge just seemed ridiculous but low and behold, two Australian chaps sat down up on the top table for the challenge. And wow what a steak! I enjoyed my dinner, the portion size was huge, I didn't... More

Big Texan has been well known across America for serving for Free the 72 oz Steak to those that manage to Eat it. This was not my attempt but while I was there in a packed Restaurant 2 Gents from Australia gave it a try. I settled for the BBQ Platter which was good except for the Sausage which was... More

You are not going to go away hungry at this place, but quantity is not always an acceptable substitution for quality, and the flavor of my steak wasn't bad at all. But the flavor of the steak seemed a bit weak comparably.

If you are on I-40 and pass the Big Texan....you will regret. This place is a must, at least once during your travels. I have stayed at the hotel attached. I travel with a pet and let me just say...the rooms are quirky and get you through a night in a pinch for a hot shower and clean bed. But... More

I had the steak sliders, very good. Wife had the sirloin and enjoyed that. 1 year old had the chicken fried steak and loved it.

I don't often do roadtrips, so there are many sights you just don't see in cosmopolitan cities and Big Texan is a gem. It was a fun place to stop for lunch. There was a carnival style air gun game, fortune telling machines, taxidermy trophies covered the walls. They had a gift shop and a candy store. If you stop... More
