Serving Amarillo since 1960

Since 1960, the Big Texan has been opened and serving 72-ounce steaks to folks living in and traveling through Amarillo, Texas! The restaurant has only been closed a few times during those 60 years. The first time was due to a fire, the second time was due to the filming of the movie, Waking Up in Reno, and the third time was due to the forced government shutdown during the COVID pandemic. Other than those times, the restaurnat still follows the orginal founders wishes of being open 365 days a year!
