Family lunch

Normally get the chicken fried steak but I can honestly say everything from hamburger to sandwich to chicken pot pies is made from scratch. When we need a good home cooked meal this is the place to go. Oh and don't forget the desserts the pies are pretty dang awesome.

Really tasty chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and greens. Husband had the chicken and mushroom sauce over rice. Everything was fresh and the portions were perfect too. The service was prompt and friendly too.

Went to lunch here today after hearing rave reviews about their chicken fried steak. Tried it and it was average at best. Certainly nothing memorable. Dark and dreary atmosphere that needs some serious upgrade. Also the locale does not look like a place I would want to be after dark.

Friendly and helpful waitstaff, handmade chicken fry (that's country-fried steak to most of you), and from-scratch veggies/sides. Located just off I-40.

Been on the road for 3 weeks and I was really missing a home cooked meal, found this place on trip advisor and it is as good as the reviews. I had the pot roast with potatoes and carrots, it was like being home on a Sunday night, roast beef was fork tender. My coworker had the pork chops and... More

Loved the menu options. I had baked cod, salad, red bean and rice. I consumed every bite. Everyone in our group of 16 were pleased with the food and service.

Every bit of food here is excellent. We had the chicken fried chicken. The breading is perfectly fluffy and crunchy but not over salted like it is at other places. Not greasy either. The chicken tasted fresh. Glazed carrots were succulent. The complimentary rolls and cinnamon rolls were amazingly addictive. Mashed potatoes were delicious, and I could tell they were... More

Calico is a standard stop every time I visit Amarillo, known for its complimentary cinnamon rolls and wonderful menu from breakfast to dinner, filled with unique Calico items like eggs your way with three option including one for the garden/veggie lovers, one for the meat folks and me who like a bit of both and you pick the style and...

Wonderful home cooked food. Visited with a party of 6 and everyone rated the food as some of the best they had eaten. Will be back.

I'm in Amarillo for work. This restaurant made me feel like I was having dinner at mom's. I ordered the liver and onions. The best I've had. The food was hot and moist and they give generous servings. You pick two sides, I had cabbage and green beans; delicious.they serve both spectrums of nutrition; satisfying either your healthy side or... More
