Panhandle, Texas has a home that greets you with two giant six-Shooters

No worries, the six-shooters won't shoot you, but they might smoke up some good ribs and brisket.  That's right these six-shooters that flank the driveway at 302 Hwy 207, in Panhandle are smokers!

The grills/smokers look to have been flanking this driveway since at least 2011, and at one point they were for sale, but it seems they are now a landmark for Panhandle, Texas.  When RoadsideAmerica.com puts a spot on their site, then it's legit.

It's fun to see the creativity with the folks in the Texas Panhandle.  Recently Amarillo got its very own six-shooter greeting drivers.

Ranchotel: The Forgotten Landmark of Old Route 66 in Amarillo, Texas

The Ranchotel, located at 2501 W. 6th St., is a product of Route 66's heyday.

When Americans first began long-distance automotive travel, they typically stayed in hotels or camped beside the road. In response, clever entrepreneurs began to build what were called tourist courts. The Ranchotel is one of these.

It was built in 1940 and until recently, it was considered one of the best preserved examples of Route 66's tourist facilities. It was placed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1995 and was well maintained until 2020.

Even now, in spite of the building's fading beauty, there is still the nostalgic air held by many a historic landmark.
