My wife and I were hosting a family reunion and wanted to provide our guests with some real Texas cuisine prior to attending the Texas Show at Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Almost everyone was willing to try the Chicken Fried Steak with the Green Chili Sauce. Portions are generous and the sides are to "die for." I always recommend... More

Green Chili Willies may not be for everyone but it is a great country cooking place serving comfort food. The chicken fried steaks are great and the sides are perfect. You really need to experience the fried pecan pie with a large portion of ice cream on top. It is busy but worth the wait

Small, "hole in the wall" type of place. Had high expectations but it wasn't the greatest. The chicken fried steaks were average and pretty small compared to other restaurants in Texas. Fries had potential to be great but were soggy. Would eat there again bc the low-key atmosphere was neat.

Anytime the menu says hand breaded chicken fried steak I'm gonna try it and then your gonna put gravy and green chilies on top? Yummy! So good and tender you can cut it with your fork! Sure they have other things on the menu that are probably good too but that green chili chicken fry will always be my choice!

We thought green chile was a New Mexico specialty....were we ever wrong! I had a huge green chile cheeseburger topped with whole grilled green chiles that were out of this world for flavor. My wife had the chicken fried chicken with gravy laced with green chile and it was so tasty. The place was packed with locals so we had... More

Amarillo is known for "Big" steak places, but in my opinion, this little corrugated steel building between Amarillo and Canyon is more representative of real Texas food and real Texans. Locals eat here. The atmosphere is charming, the green corrugated steel on the outside is unpainted on the inside.If you are local, cahnces are you'll see somebody you know every... More

I had a green chili cheese burger upon recommendation, and it was very good (comparable to the famous places in New Mexico. Thin cut fries were ok, and the waitstaff were attentive (at the appropriate level for that kind of place). It'll be on my regular list.

This is a great burger, salad, sandwich, steak place. The fried pickles are the best! I had the cheese sandwich - a little on the over greased side, but my friend had the chicken pieces and gravy - excellent, and another person had the chicken salad, also excellent. If you want ( can hold) dessert, they have one that is... More
