    Try Out One of the New Restaurants

    Amarillo is constantly getting new restaurants. Bubba's and Freddy's opened a few months ago, 1000 Degrees Pizzeria opened this week, and we're looking forward to getting a Fuddruckers soon. Even if you're not technically trying a brand new restaurant, we have such a big selection that there's bound to be a spot you haven't tried yet.
