Big Texan Steak Ranch

A place that you thought only existed in a Simpsons episode. If you can eat its 72 oz. steak in an hour, you get it for free. Goofy photo-ops in the parking lot. Report... [04/15/2013]

The food at the Big Texan Steak Ranch is pretty good in spite of the decor. It's definitely Texas-style fun.

Meatless meal.

Big Texan Steak Ranch

You'll see billboards advertising the Big Texan Steak Ranch 72 ounce steak challenge when you get within a hundred miles of Amarillo. But even if you aren't up to devouring five pounds of beef and trimmings (or watching someone else do it), this sprawling monument to Texan cuisine is a tourist trap worth getting stuck in.

Fantastic for kids! Got a maze, mining for "gemstones" bean bag toss, walking crooners, etc. very friendly! Food is so so, entertainment is well worth it!

Good luck squeezing the Charmin for the next week if you attempt the 72 oz. Steak freebie. I didn't eat there, as the entire restaurant smelled like nervous cows, i.e. stale sweat and fresh methane. Of all the attractions here, my personal favorite was the "Seated Waiting Area."
