Years ago (1974) I came to Amarillo not knowing about the area I purchased a home there, only to find myself in "for no better word" hell. Due to circumstances I had to remain there with small children to long. They were destroyed by the area basically.. It was actually better than now. When I visit home "Austin Texas" I... More

You can find some good local homestyle food. Geleato cowboy, barnabys, braceros, and many more.

Most popular is SCOOTERS. If you want a place where... More

6th street is only good if your looking for drugs or weirdos. Why not just tell people to take a walk up the boulevard while your at it..

This is the old roote 66 area. It is okay but not an area ,as a local, that I visit often. There are some neat shops and restaurants but It isn't a lure for me.

No idea why this would be a place for trip advisor to put as recreation, unless recreational drugs is your thing. Bad neighborhood!! I live in Amarillo so I know.

6th street itself is interesting in that "weird" sort of way that is so popular in main street renovation these days. Yes, there are some cool shops and some decent places to eat along the street itself (Barnaby's Beanery and Golden Light Cafe standout with good food and decent music) but take it from someone that has lived in Amarillo...
