Big Texan Steak Ranch

7701 E H 40 East, Amarillo, TX - (806) 372-5000
Big Texan steaks are available in sizes up to seventy-two ounces. That’s right: a four and a half pound hunk of grilled sirloin, accompanied by a salad, baked potato, and dinner roll. If you can clean your plate of everything but fat and gristle within one hour, you get your meal for free! Plus, you get your name inscribed on The Big Texan Honor Roll along with the nearly 5000 carnivores who have successfully ingested the ridiculously large hunk of beef since the offer began in 1960.

This is what it's all about. An 18 oz piece of meat, that is so good, it makes you forget all of the hype, and glitz.
