We stayed at the Amarillo RV park and took the free limo to the restaurant which was great. The food in here is spectacular. Massive portions and all the sides you can imagine. I wasn't brave enough to try the 72oz challenge but i did smash a 24oz beautiful steak cooked to perfection. You won't go wrong eating here. The... More

Obviously coming from the UK we knew of this place by watching it on TV, so we really wanted to come here. We expected to wait so be prepared for that, but after 20 mins we were seated. They have everyone in rows and rows of bench like tables with booths around the perimeter. We went on the night they... More

The 72oz steak meal was on display and boy did it look good! My husband knew there was no way he could finish it so we ordered a regular steak and watched others try to eat the 72oz. Our waitress was nice and knowledgeable. The service was quick. I suggest trying the flight of beers!

We have stopped by many times on your twice-a-year trips east to west. Last year I had a steak that was 35-40 percent fat. This year we thought we would try pork BBQ. Ordered two sandwiches. There shortly after 11 and it still took 25 minutes to be served. When I told the server this seemed inordinately long she said... More

It was very close to the RV park where we stayed a couple of nights. The RV park also offered a free limo ride to the restaurant although we had our own vehicle so didn't use it. We had quesadillas and Rocky Mountain oysters.. Very generous portions and quite tasty. Will try the steaks next time. They looked delicious. Good... More
