Stopped in while walking the remnants of Route 66. Counter person offered us samples and we both fell for the pecan scoop in a waffle cone. Absolutley delishes!! Lots of pecans spread throughout. Wish we had some right now! Had a full lunch menue which we would have loved to try as we noticed others enjoying their food, But alas,... More

I found out that they served Green Chili Stew. My husband loves it and it is so hard to find here in Amarillo. Before, we had to drive all the way to Portales, NM. Now that we know it's at this restaurant, we will be coming frequently.

Fabulous Burgers and Nachos! But of course you must save room for the freshly made in house Gelato. They have a wide variety of flavors that are always changing.

The blueberry gelato was really good. Other than that I can't speak for. I'm a little bit of a gelato snob and didn't have much desire for any of their gelato selection. I'm used to gelato having the toppings on the gelato for show and always request them to scrape the top for my portions.

The gelato was aces, and the cones homemade. (Homemade cones are the mark of an excellent establishment, in my book.) We also ordered some food to go, and that was where the problem came in. While there were plenty of people working the counter, there seemed to only be one person in the kitchen. Our takeout order of one cold... More

Had a burger with the "Four Horseman" sauce. Not just scald everything it touches hot, but also very very tasty. The fries with the spicy goat cheese and tossed in Frank's were incredible, as are the fried pickles (not your traditional fried pickle, I might add). Cool your palate with a home made very fresh gelato. Awesome place, friendly and... More

We all had Gelato, the food looks and smells amazing but the gelato for sure is. We all got something different and sampled. The waffle cones are made fresh in plain site and the gelato is amazing!! A great 6th ave stop on Rt 66!!

Burgers are so big I have to cut them to eat. Also they have some strange nachos. Not like Mexican nachos. I'm addicted. And a large selection of homemade gelato. Oh yeah the appetizer. Fried green chiles. I'm getting hungry thinking about the place. And the staff is wonderful.
