Saw this place on tv show Texas Bucket List and forgot it was in Amarillo! Delicious hamburger crunchy crisp fries and ice cold beer in a frosty mug. If you're in the area and you need a good greasy burger this is your place. Only 4 stars because a/c not great and limited seating.

One of my favorite places. Always offers great live music booking local and touring groups. Step next door for good old fashioned burgers, fries and a full menu of diner food. Place your order and return to the bar or dine on the cafe side.

Place is not very large, get there early for dinner and a good seat, nonsmoking-a huge plus, limited parking in the back, street parking in the front.

Plan a great evening out with friends or solo (have always felt comfortable solo), kick back and enjoy a great Amarillo experience.

Found this on a Route 66 article while traveling across the country. So happy we chose to make a stop here. Delicious, juicy green chilli cheeseburger and largest order of a small fry I've ever had. $4 pitcher of beer. Sitting among the locals who were very friendly. Would definitely recommend a stop in.

It was a pretty awesome! Flagstaff pie was super filling! The all the way to LA was also a great hit! Such a good decision and love the quaint feel to it!
