When family or friends come to visit Amarillo a lot of times they want the Texas experience. They want to do it all. They want to see it all. Which could mean a trip to Palo Duro Canyon. It probably will include the Cadillac Ranch.

They might want to go out to two-step. If they are not from Texas they want that experience that only Texas can give you. Which probably will also include a trip to The Big Texan.

Anyone who has traveled anywhere near Texas for miles and miles will see the billboards. They definitely grab your attention. You know the ones I am talking about. The free 72 oz. steak ones. You know, if eaten within an hour. Those always do what they are supposed to. They get people talking.

You know that when you have family come to town they want to eat at that place that Will Ferrell was at last year. You know that place where Man Vs Food was filmed at one time? That place where Molly Schuyler ate three 72 oz steaks before teams of two could even eat one? It's a thing. I watched it in all its glory.

The Big Texan is known for that steak challenge but that is not all. They also built a motel on their property for tired travelers who could stop for a good night's sleep after they ate their weight in steak.

If that is not a good enough experience you can even go off property.How about you go ahead and add in several Airbnb's in Amarillo and you have a recipe for Texas hospitality. You have family coming to town and they need a place to stay?
