News From Along Route 66-- July 2015: Big Texan Considering Moving

JULY 27--  The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas is considering moving to another in-town site.  The reason is because they are bursting at the seams with customers.  It has been at its present location for over 40 years.

If they do move it will be a half mile west to I-40.  They acquired the land years ago.

Some interesting facts:

**  Serve 500,000 meals a year and more than 2,000 on a busy night.

**  Amarillo draws more than 300 bus tours a year and more than half come to the Big Texan.

**  They sell 80 gallons of hand-crafted beer a day and the Big Texan is by far the biggest server of alcoholic beverages in Amarillo and probably the whole Texas Panhandle.
