Home cooking and comfort food at it's finest. It's a must stop on visits to Amarillo. Really love the cinnamon rolls that come with the bread.

While traveling, stopped here to meet friend who lives in Amarillo, her suggestion. It was easy to find. People were friendly. And the food was wonderful. Best meal while on the road. Great menu.

I have to travel from the DFW area to ABQ, NM once a year at least and really struggled finding a decent place to stop on the 10 hour drive for lunch. Finally, we gave Calico County a try and were not disappointed. It's convenient to I-40, and close gas stations to fill up. Filling up in the restaurant is... More

We felt like we stepped back in time when we visited this restaurant for an early dinner on the road. Friendly staff and well-worn interior gave the place a cozy feel. Menu is extensive and we wondered if the cook could really produce so much variety with quality, but we enjoyed everything we ate and left full and content. Give... More

Calico had been in Amarillo for many many years. Down home good southern style food like grandma used to make. Great breakfast as well and yummy homemade desserts.

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!

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

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
