Cool little diner and definitely a homestyle cooking menu. I am not a huge fan of the fried gravy covered type of foods (but I know lots of people are including the guys I went with) so I ordered the burger which was definitely made from a frozen patty. It was tough and had no taste. The guys loved their... More

Good hearty breakfast - Food was fresh and hot! Perfect for a day of hiking at Palo Duro Canyon. Service was prompt! The decor and atmosphere is dated but we were just looking to eat a big hearty breakfast and this was the place!

We stop here almost every time we drive cross country using the I-40. Great home-cookin in Texas! Chicken Fried Steak has been my favorite so far.

Found this place tonight when looking for where to have dinner. Glad we stopped here. The "Home Cooking" sign is what got our attention. I had liver and onions. It was perfect. Thin sliced liver cooked just right. My wife had chicken livers. They were good but with a bit more breading than she would have liked. A private family... More

While in Amarillo friends who are locals took us here for dinner on Saturday night. We used to live in Amarillo and most restaurants would have a wait time but we walked right in and were seated. Even though it is home cooking there were lots of choices that were healthy and lite. The prices were also reasonable. They serve... More

After being on vacation for 26 days, my husband and I were looking for some good home cooking -- Well, we found it. I had liver & onions with boiled cabbage and baked squash. My husband had the meatloaf with the same sides. We both enjoyed our meal tremendously! Our waitress was a nice young lady who took care of... More

Called bob the mgr to complain that cinnamon rolls were hard, his response was stick them in the microwave. Don't do takeout from here.

We stopped at this place on the way through Amarillo based upon the online recommendations. We were absolutely pleased with the selection and the actual food. The service was great! Their Irish stew... I could eat daily. Like eating at grandma's house. If you are passing through and tired of chain restaurants give this a whirl... You won't be disappointed.
