The place was packed so apperntly a lot of people like it, but I thought the music volume was making me deaf.

“Good old fashioned burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Burgers were delicious, fries were as well. This is an old style cafe with cafe food. It is on 6th street so there are lots to walk and see after you eat. Great place!!

“I need another!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

Lived near Amarillo all my life, but this was the first time to visit Golden Light Cafe. They specialize in burgers, so I tried the open face chili cheeseburger. It was wonderful! Meat, cheese, chili, and somewhere down there was a bun. Nothing particularly good for the body, but my soul rejoiced! My buddy and I split a large order of fries and we still couldn't eat them all. Friendly, pretty, and attentive waitress. More room in the cafe than it appears on first entering. The orders came quick so it wasn't a problem, anyway. It's supper time and I'm still not hungry...but fondly recalling lunch!

“Love, love, love their burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

I enjoy their burger and fries. Their wait staff are very prompt and friendly. I've heard great things about the cantina and the bands but not been in the evening
