Discover Amarillo's Best Restaurants

It’s true what they say. The quickest way to our heart is through our mouth. So, we wander this planet in search of the juiciest steak, the cheesiest enchilada, the freshest sushi, and the perfectly balanced cocktail. The best restaurants in Amarillo cater to the traveler’s desire to savor great food and are full of the big flavors Texas is known for.

Amarillo is surrounded by Texas cattle ranches, so naturally, we deliver the freshest steaks directly to dining tables. Take the world-famous 72-ounce steak challenge at The Big Texan Steak Ranch. Y’all, this one is worth the drive—an experience in itself. But, the diversity of our Amarillo restaurants goes well beyond steaks.

Amarillo chefs are putting their local twist on modern classics. Public House elevates comfort food to a new level, and OHMS Cafe & Bar serves up unexpected dishes and craft cocktails.

Head to the Route 66 Historic District and discover new favorite places to eat like Bracero’s Mexican Bar & Grill (in what was once a Route 66 gas station), and Amarillo’s oldest restaurant, The GoldenLight Cantina, offering up live music and great burgers. Grab a bite-on-the-go at the Route 66 Food Truck Park.

Expect variety when it comes to having amazing sushi in Amarillo. Sushi House is a crowd-pleaser with a long list of options to pair with sake. Visitors rave about Bangkok Tokyo’s menu which includes sushi, Japanese, and Thai food. Take in the cosmopolitan vibe at Rain Premier Sushi Bar and Lounge, a popular downtown Amarillo restaurant.

No matter what you’re craving, come hungry for a night out on the town dining in Amarillo, Texas.
