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

We had a really good time, the food is real good and priced fair. My family and I had a great time. It is a tourist attraction so understand that when you go.

I was not pressed with the Big Texan. There is a large gift shop that offers all the usual souvenirs. I just would not eat here again. It is one of those been there done that places. The food was seasoned with so much pepper I could not eat my meal.

Would definitely recommend to stop and see what it is about nice atmosphere but don't eat the steaks. I can only say Nebraska has better steaks

We aren't usually up for tourist type places, but had see this on TV and thought it would be fun. So we stopped in passing through town and split a 18oz rib eye. It was cooked nicely, service was better than average for sure, and we liked the rustic fun atmosphere.

We stopped here to give our German exchange student the quintessential Texas experience and were not disappointed - watching the 72 oz steak challenge, the decor, menu, music - all of it was over-the-top Texas. The highlight though was my son getting to add 'mountain oysters' to his list of exotic foods that he's eaten. Like others have said, the... More

It's a must stop on Route 66! Food is just average but all in all it's a fun experience and the place itself has some really cool stuff outside!

I thought the name was "THE BIG TEXAN" or "THE BIG TEXAN STEAK RANCH"? When I ate here as a kid I think it was more like a cafe facility. But back to this century: The steaks are not prime. I never will try to eat that monster steak to see if I can get it for free. A tourist... More

The staff was friendly, our Waite was good, but both steaks came over cooked and when the waiter told the cook he blamed the waiter. For a 20 oz ribeye, it was very thin and they made no attempts to corrected the over cooked steak. I left half of it.
