72oz STEAK

Home of the FREE 72oz steak

In 1960, R. J. “Bob” Lee opened The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo on Route 66, the “Mother Road. Its distinctive architecture soon became recognized across the Mother Road as a good stopping place for great steaks grilled over an open flame.


R. J. “Bob” Lee, a Midwesterner, whose family roots went back to the four-star Savoy Grill in Kansas City, grew up on stories and movies about cowboys, Indians, horses and Texas cattle ranches. The Texas mystique drew him like a lodestone.

When he made his way to the Texas Panhandle and to Amarillo with his wife Mary Ann and their growing family, it didn’t take long for him to embrace the Lone Star State and to claim its persona as his own. His only disappointment was that he couldn’t find a first-class Texas-style steakhouse in an area of the country best known for cowboys and cattle.

Rattlesnake IPA

Light copper color. It’s all here. The hop flavors are complex citric, piney, herbal, floral and integrates well with the carmel…

Tres Hombres

Light body, crisp Mexican-style lager. You may find yourself saying, “Uno mas cerveza por favor.”

jack rabbit red

Smooth and creamy. Lightly toasted malts balanced by Amarillo Gold and German Hallertauer hops. Always a favorite!


The Big Texan Brewery started serving hand craft beers June 24, 2011 after a lengthy process of paperwork with the “Feds” or TTB and the TABC. The amount of work that was needed to put a dream into reality started decades ago and many miles apart between Tom Money (Brewmaster) and the Lee Brothers (Bobby & Danny).
