    1. Not this trip, but I have 15 or 20 times. I park out front, spend the night. I love the place. I get the man verses food special, 24 ounce top sirloin, medium rare to rare.

      Place is a must go for me usually. Then I get the gigantic carrot cake slice. Take most of it with me back to truck.

      1. Mark, I stayed at the Big Texan a few times. I never made an effort to eat the free steak dinner, but the place is great and the old fashioned knotty pine in the motel is just fine with me. I loved the live country music the last time I was there. Wow has it been that long ago? Time does fly by.

        1. Yes it does Bill, yes this place is old school country music, just a lot of fun inside place is jammed. They raise their own cattle.

  1. This holding area is only half full today, usually its packed full of cattle, its a weekend, weekdays its jammed full. What you see here is only 1/4 of the facility, its huge.

    You can smell this place for miles away.

    1. 🙂 I always look forward to Amarillo, the whole state really. Like runnin down the 287, south to the 59 points south. Usually through Witchita falls, Dallas or Houston.

      1. 😀
        Can get a bit smelly when you pass holding corrals for cattle and chicken farms. The Refineries can be unpleasant, too. 😉 😆

  2. Exactly….on that recent trip to El Paso there were loads of cattle in a large holding pen off the McNary exit (on I-10). And I don’t think all those cows were from Africa if you know what I mean….
