It was quaint back then...20 years ago. they had just put in new brick sidewalks and old-world looking lights on sixth Street (old rte. 66). I frequented the many second-hand shops. My mom bought a huge barrel of old buttons there when she came for a visit. I ate at Barnaby's. Seems like a lot has changed since then. The... More

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. You can find antique shops, and nick nac type shops, exotic animal shop and ofcourse this is the motorcycle #1 place in all of the Texas panhandle. Lots of bikes everyday and plenty of bars. 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.

This is mainly at the previous reviews that were posted. Not all of "Old" san jacinto is crack addicts. I'll admit that there are quite a few but saying that everyone there i one is absurd. I live there. I would know. I have never smoked, drank or have ever participated in any illlegal activities and I know many others... More

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...
