First, let me say I generally would not add a restaurant to a day trip adventure. We do not eat at restaurants often. I decided to add this because we love photo ops and this place had a ton of them!!! Even though it’s not really a day trip, it was still a fun time and a must-do if you are ever in Amarillo Texas.

We are staying at the KOA in Amarillo and they will call and set up a shuttle pick up right from the campsite. They pick up a fairly large part of the surrounding area. If you are driving yourself, the parking lot is pretty big with an area for RVs in the rear. We figured that it was a good idea to take the shuttle since we wanted to sample some local beer.

Well Hello There

We were picked up by a super nice guy driving the shuttle. On the way there he explained the history of the restaurant and what to expect when we get there. He also explained where the pickup point was so we knew where to catch the shuttle to get back.

Upon arrival, we took photos with the shuttle car which of course has horns…lol. We moved on to do some silly pictures with the big cow statue and the face in the hole thing. Inside there is a large gift shop to your left and a little ice cream bar on your right.

We walked straight through the building and did some more photo ops with some of the displays we found throughout the building. They also had a small hallway with pictures hanging on the wall that change as you walk by.

After having fun with the photo ops we head to the restaurant. We went a little early. It was around 5 pm so it was not that crowded. We were seated right away. We ordered a beer sampler and had fun sampling the different types of beer, The service was average but the food was pretty good. We both got the steaks and they were cooked correctly and tasted good. No complaints.

After eating we had to stop and get some ice cream. There are benches and rocking chairs on the porch to sit and relax in and that’s exactly what we did.

All in all, we had a great experience and lots of fun with photo ops. The food was good and the prices were average for a steakhouse. As I said earlier, if you are ever in Amarillo this is a fun way to have a meal.
