When it comes to steaks and cole slaw this place is #1 in our book. We found out about this place from watching Man vs Food and we were not disappointed at all. In fact, it was the restaurant that originally got us started into wanting to try new places when we travel. Made us begin to look forward to vacations a lot more.

We have been to the Big Texan about 3 times and have enjoyed this place every time we have came. This place has excellent food. The steaks are cooked perfectly. Always juicy and mouth watering tender. Absolute perfection!! I not one to always like cole slaw, but I can never resist the Big Texan's. Not too much salad dressing and the touch if pepper gives it a great taste. Let's just say that one day I will get a big order to bring back with me or order it online. It is just that good.

The biggest part of The Big Texan is watching their famous 72 oz. Steak Challenge. The challenge includes a 72 oz steak, baked potato, salad, dinner roll and shrimp cocktail. If you can eat all of this in one hour you get a T-shirt, a souvenir boot mug, a certificate, a photo added to the "Wall of Fame", and your money for the meal refunded. Only once have we seen a live challenge when we visit. Unfortunately the 3 guys there didn't win.

The boys love coming here to see the store, creepy photos on the walls by the bathroom, cool animal heads in the dining room, and get their free cowboy hats. The staff is always great with them and making our dining experience special.

Call it a tourist attraction or tourist trap if you want, but there is no way you should go to Amarillo, TX and not go here for a great meal with your family. Out of all the restaurants we have been to this #1 on our list.
