As Amarillo drew close, we decided to enjoy lunch at The Big Texan, because, well, it is expected.
We opted for Buffalo burgers rather than take on the 72 ounce steak challenge.
At the time we were seated, I asked our server how often people take on the challenge. She informed us that people take on the challenge regularly. I was surprised to find that four people attempted to eat the 72 ounce steak, sides, and a dessert while we enjoyed our lunch. None of them made it which means they each owed a $72. bill. Yikes!
Sweet LibbyLu was serenaded by a singing cowboy. He was a way too old for my sweet girl, but she was a good sport.
There was some beer tasting and lots of eating. It was a wonderfully fun touristy lunch.
As we passed through Amarillo a very, very frigthening storm kicked up and driving was difficult. After a harrowing few moments with what appeared to be a drunk driver in front of us and a tracker with trailer coming up on us fast, we pulled off to wait out the torrential downpour. After shaking of the scare we hit the road heading west once again.
