When it comes to any other type of food in Amarillo, there's usually a pretty clear consensus on what restaurants are the best in their category. But surprisingly, when it comes to good steak we have a relatively limited number of notable steakhouses.

On Amarillo's subreddit someone posted a poll, asking "Who has the best steak in Amarillo?" and it received a decent amount of attention and votes.

According to the poll, the ranking of Amarillo's steaks houses goes in this order

#1 Texas Roadhouse

#2 Saltgrass Steakhouse

#3 Hoffbrau Steak & Grill House

#4 Longhorn Steakhouse

# 5 Red River Steakhouse

Although the steakhouses representing Amarillo's best were expected, when you think about it, this list is a bit underwhelming. Just about all of the steakhouses, listed above are chain restaurants.

They aren't bad and I'm not knocking on Texas Roadhouse's steaks or anything because they do in fact serve pretty good steaks but it's just that none of these spots are local.

Thankfully, user jroldan6 points out in the comments that this poll did not cover all of Amarillo's best steakhouses, commenting "You’re missing a few, X steakhouse, Metropolitan, and Cask and Cork"

The Problem

Although this comment gives out more options for good steaks in Amarillo, it also unintentionally highlights another problem with Amarillo's steakhouses. When it comes to high-ticket dining there are a decent amount of options but if you are looking for a good steak from a local restaurant at a reasonable price, your options are severely limited.

Other commenters throw out places such as Coyote Bluff and a few other select names, but the list of local steakhouses is still pretty short. I mean what the heck!! We live near the world's beef capital and don't have any decently priced steakhouses.

All that I am saying is that Amarillo still has some okay options when it comes to steakhouses, but as we get bigger and bigger as a city hopefully we can diversify when it comes to our steak options.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
