4.  Big Texan Steak Ranch – Amarillo, Texas

Big Texan Steak Ranch

Ever notice how everything in Texas has to be a “ranch”?  This is actually a restaurant, not a ranch, although they do serve beef and lots of it.  The Big Texan Steak Ranch is known for their famous 72 oz steak, and if you can eat the entire thing (plus the served side items) within an hour, it’s yours free!  Needless to say, more people fail than succeed and in that case, the dinner will cost you a whooping $72.00.  There is also an in-house brewery with several custom brews, so come thirsty!  And remember the rule we have on our tours, no steak until there is a successful severe thunderstorm interception!
