A short tour around the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas on Historic Route 66.

The Big Texan is best known for its 72 ounce (4.5 pounds or 2.041 kg) steak, nicknamed “The Texas King.” The steak is free to anyone who, in less than one hour, can eat the entire meal, consisting of the steak itself, plus bread roll with butter, baked potato, ranch beans, shrimp cocktail, and salad; otherwise, the meal costs $72.00. Those who have successfully consumed the Texas King meal have their names recorded and posted at the restaurant. To date, about 8,000 people have met that distinction out of 48,000.

We stopped off here during our three week tour of Route 66.
