The meal was great! Melt in your mouth sirloin steak. Someone was doing the 72oz challenge while we were there. Well worth the money.

You don't have to try the 72 ounce steak challenge (eat it and the sides in an hour and it's free).To enjoy yourself here. Old west décor, large long tables, some good ole boys going from table to table singing songs and taking requests. All the waiters and waitresses are in cowboy gear. Food is reasonable priced for what you... More

I ordered a filet. Came a little over cooked and not very juicy or tender. I have had better filets at some of the chain restaurants. We had to ask for rolls. Waitress not very attentive. My husband did not like his side of dried out cowboy beans so we flagged down a hostess to make an exchange. Had to... More

Wonderful, great mashed taters & steaks as always. Wish they had bleu cheese dressing, though. Gift shop pricey.

I thought the steak prices were a little steep until i got the steak & they offered to refill the sides along with more buttery luscious rolls.

Somebody was trying the grind their way through the 72oz challenge while we were there which made me feel a little queezy just thinking about it. Our steaks were smaller (thankfully) and very tasty and cooked perfectly. There was a roving trio singing requests and they made a very good effort of the Hank Williams song we requested. A nice...

Lived in Amarillo for years and had never been. It was on my list of things to do before moving away and I'm glad I did. It is a fun atmosphere, uniquely Texan, and the food is very good.

First night in Texas and we wanted steaks! The Big Texan sounded like it fit the bill and was just one exit from our hotel. What a fun place! The old west dining hall decor, strolling western musicians and a customer trying to finish off a 4 1/2 lb. steak made for an enjoyable dining experience. Add to that, the... More

I enjoyed the food, but a little over priced for what your getting on the plate. The CFS was good, and the atmosphere has a lot to experience there. Overall, it's worth checking out at least once in life. BTW, if it's your birthday, you get a free meal that day. Peta people be aware! You might want to stay... More
