Thus is the place that they advertise free 72 Oz steak. Well you know there has to be catch. If you eat the steak, shrimp appetizer and baked potato all within 60 minutes its yours free. Loud and crowded place with loud and rowdy people. There was a man there trying to do this, he sits up on a stage... More

Saw the signs headed that way and couldn't resist to stop and see what it was all about. It was packed and it seems to always be packed. We had a 15 minute wait, not bad... The service was good the food was excellent. Huge steaks cooked just right. The atmosphere and decor is wonderful. Hope to go back again... More

Stopped by to due the steak thing. Three guys were trying the 72 oz challenge, but none of them made it. Costs you $72 bucks if you fail. My son and I waited almost 15 minutes in a booth before getting service. I had to pull one of the other waiters over and ask for drinks and a waitress. They... More

This a must do stop in Amarillo. The food is good. Not the best ever but good. It's fun to watch people try and eat the 72oz steak meal. Lots of stuff to look at there also.

I have eaten here 2 times in the last 25 years both on road trips. It was lots of fun both times. The staff were as helpful as can be, the steaks were delicious, the decor as corny as ever, and each time I avoided the steak challenge. So the food is good,and affordable given you are at a steak...

Enjoyed our meal at Big Texan Steakhouse. I ordered one of their brewery special beers and enjoyed it. My wife ordered the flight from their brewery. My favorite was the Pecan Porter. I ordered the Man V. Food meal which consists of 18 Oz sirloin, baked potato, fried shrimp (3), salad and a roll. It is basically 1/4 of the... More

Over the last 5 years we've dined here three times. The first time we really liked it here - fun atmosphere plus decent steaks - while the second time we still enjoyed ourselves but less so primarily because the quality of steaks didn't seem as good. Our most recent visit in March left us questioning if we'll ever go back.... More

I went just to try their beers since thy are the only place in town that makes their own beer. However I ended up eating a NY strip while there, it was pretty good! Not the best I've had but good for the price. The atmosphere is what makes it & the people watching is really fun.
