It's a fact that we have an inordinate amount of restaurants here in Amarillo, TX. Trying to figure out where to eat can be an absolute challenge, especially if you're ballin' on a budget.

When you think sit down restaurant, you think it's going to be expensive if you want a good and decent meal. A lot of the places who offer up cheaper prices on their food have a tendency to actually taste just as cheap.

Well I've got good news for you. Because we have so many restaurants here, we have plenty of places where you get a high quality meal, for a low quality price. It's everyone's dream right? So I started doing a little research and found a few top rated places when it comes to quality of food, and a check that won't break the bank.


I haven't personally been to Golden Light yet, but I've heard some great things about them, and after looking at the menu, I probably won't wait past lunch to go and try them out. The prices are incredible. $7.99 for a double cheeseburger? Yeah, I'm in. You know that's probably way better than an extra value meal from a fast food joint, and it's going to taste better.

Golden Light grabbed a 4.5 out of star rating.


Man I've heard a LOT about this place, but always seem to forget about it when figuring out where to go for food. I think it's about time I go. They've got some very unique and tasty looking items that I'm now salivating to try.

A 4.5 out of 5 star rating tells me it can't be wrong there.


With the amount of different types of Mexican restaurants in Amarillo, finding the best one can be difficult. However, I think we may have found THE spot to go. When you combine incredible Mexican food with great prices, you have me at hello. El Bracero is frequently mentioned as THE spot to get Mexican food, and I would agree with them.

It also pulled a 4.5 out of 5 star rating, but if you ask me, it should be 5 of 5.
