Wow! I've been coming to Amarillo for many, many years. I just found out about this gem of a place (thanks to my son). When I heard the name I went "huh?" I went there on my last trip to Amarillo and lo and behold found a gem! Wowsa! Great burgers and a nice menu. Their Green Chili Bacon Cheeseburger... More

I want something I can't get at home when I'm on vacation, and this place stepped up. I got to try some unique eats and the family got some good old reliable favorites. Everybody was very nice and the portions were huge. Trying to open wide enough to bite into the burgers was the most fun we had all day.... More

These folks are friendly and have developed a great menu! We loved the green chili fries, and the regular fries, spiced but surprisingly not over salted. The burgers: premium fresh cooked. The rest of the menu and the ambience are fun. There's a great barista shop a couple of doors down, and great window shopping if you're in need of... More

Had a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. First stop on a 17 day road trip. The cafe sits on Route 66 therefore there are small shops and cafes nearby. Ordered the hamburger sliders instead of the 1/2 lb. hamburger. It was some of the best charcoaled meat I have ever eaten and being from Ok. that is saying a... More

Great service, excellent food! The Harry Carey Jr was divine. Pork loin battered in a pecan, Graham cracker crust between two jalapeno cornbread loaf slices of bread. And you must try the fried green beans. Yum Coconut gelato was a great ending to this wonderful meal.

Had eaten a lot of good Gelato in Italy over the past years and we were hungry for some more. So of course we had to try it here. It was good, not quite the same as Italy. It looked like they have live music on some nights and of course they do serve food. Limited parking in front but... More

I liked my burger and the gelato, but the restaurant was very dirty. The person playing music was good, but it made it hard to have a conversation. I would go back for the gelato, but not to sit down and eat.

Just like the soup. If you happen to be antiquing in this area this a great pit stop. I happened by in search of some vegetarian friendly fare and found this delightful spot with live music in middle of a Wednesday afternoon. The musician was very cheeky which made it all the more delightful. The food was delicious. I had... More
