    We live here in Amarillo and have gone to the 'Texan' a few times. While it's incredibly hokie and cheesy, they have some pretty damn good steaks and chicken fried steak.

    As for the 72oz'er, that thing is just a monsterous roast. I saw an asian kid from Duke University knock it out in about 38 mins. Quite impressive. They put you up on a stage in the middle of the dining area...it's amusing and if you ever come thru here, you should check it out.

    2 days and a wake up, though, til we leave this town for good!!!

    SirFelix is right. They make a big deal out of it. Lived hear almost 25 years and never had the guts to try it. It isn't just the steak either. You have to eat all the trimmings.

    woof.

    It is a good steakhouse though. But INCREDIBLY hokey.

    No doubt...Lone Star Bar & Grill down on FM 1151 is the steak you MUST have if you come thru Amarillo. It's like a Brontasaurus steak. And incredible ribeye.

    Frank Pastore, who was a professional pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds, ate the complete steak dinner in 9 and 1/2 minutes. (May 3, 1987) Pastore actually has eaten the steak dinner seven times. On his first effort, in February 1976, he finished the steak in 21 minutes.

    I would worry that someone would choke eating so much so fast but I'm confident Pastore got all of the choking out his system while with the Reds.

    Most of the steakhouses here are overrated. Now Mexican food, that's another story.

    I actually had a Frank Pastore jersey as a kid. Had a Hume jersey too. And I marched in the baseball bunch parade for Johnny Bench's last game. I think it was his last game. All I remember was big hands and bad breath. I was 13.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
