Home type cooking, very busy place

We ate here twice and were pleased overall with our experience. Not the cheapest place in town, but not overly expensive either.

Best chicken fried chicken ever! The breading was delicious! Now to move on to the homemade chocolate cake. My husband had the smothered steak and it was also delicious!

Thanks to the Trip Advisor reviews, we got to try Calico county while passing through. Never would have known about it without your help. Thank you! We both tried the chicken fried steak and it was fantastic. One of the better ones I have had in a long,long time. Service was very friendly and quick. Thoroughly enjoyed this place and... More

I work at The Baymont Inn & Suites (WEST) and when our guests ask me, "Where's a good place to eat?" I make sure to let them know about Calico County . Every time upon their return - they come back with smiles and 💯 % satisfied. One time they even returned with some your delicious homemade biscuits for me.... More

Our first day of vacation found us in Amarillo around lunch time. My wife looked up reviews and suggested this restaurant. We got there just in time, as it was filling up for lunch. Our waitress was charming and gave great suggestions. The Chicken Fried Steak was one of the best I've ever had... Yummy! My wife had the catfish... More

Great place to eat, only place in town that serves Turkey/Dressing every Sunday! Great portions, good prices and very attentive wait staff! Only and its minor, is Amarillo folks tend to linger and visit after eating, which creates seating issues on Saturday/Sunday, but that's true at most nice places!

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
