On a stop over in Amarillo TX we couldn't face another free motel "breakfast". We found the names of a couple of local restaurants & happened to find the Calico Co. Restaurant first. Lucky us. We were seated & quickly served coffee with free fresh out of the oven cinnamon rolls. Our meals were comfy large, reasonably priced & delicious.... More

Amarillo was I-40 stopover for us so we wanted to try something new and different. Upon the recommendation of the waiter, all three of ordered the chicken fried steak with different sides. The CFS wasn't large in area but was very thick. The coating and gravy were good but were overwhelmed by the thickness of the CFS. The flavor became... More

Being big fans of the Black Eyed Pea chain, we were looking forward to Calico and it delivered! We thought the veggies were better than the Pea, fresh baked rolls and sweet rolls for dessert. Great quality for the money.

I have eaten many times at Calico County when I pass through or visit Amarillo. The breakfast menu is extensive and each meal is accompanied with a basket of warm and delicious homemade cinnamon rolls. The lunch menu at large also, and one can choose a smaller portion of the regular menu entrée. I would definitely recommend the meat loaf.... More

With a nice large facility and plenty of wait staff Calico County is a nice place for a good breakfast. Believe it or not breakfast is one of the joys of life, at least mine. So a good omelet, potatoes, toast and coffee always winds my approval. It is nice for a place to serve a second cup of coffee... More

We go here on cool days in season and have a nice bowl of Chili with Corn Bread. Some of the best in the area. This is a local restaurant and good home cooking, be sure and get there before 10:30 if you want breakfast. Staff is friendly and service good.

If you like sour cream in your scrambled eggs and omelets and you like only American cheese, then this place is for you. I asked for cheddar and was told they only use American. My wife's Belgian Waffle was mediocre-nothing special to shout about. I will say the Raisin Toast was exceptional. Will we come back for another breakfast? Probably... More
