That’s So Amarillo! Stereotypes of People in Amarillo
Amarillo is a great city and we have our own quirky ways of doing things. Sometimes it's fun to poke fun at ourselves.
That's so Amarillo: Construction
If you think about it, it truly is Amarillo. We are completely covered in construction, east, west, north, south, inner-city, outer city we are surrounded by orange cones and barrels.
That's so Amarillo: Big Texan
Let's face it the Big Texan's Steak Challenge is definitely sooooo Amarillo. When you're visiting Amarillo, it seems to be a must to stop and try or at least stop by the Big Texan.

When I picture the "Amarillo" mom, I see a messy bun, athletic leggings, the latest athletic shoes, a giant purse, coffee in hand, big sunglasses, and driving a black expensive SUV.

The typical stereotype of an "Amarillo" male, is jeans, a pair of cowboy boots, an untucked button-down, and some baseball cap that includes a brand from a TV show or a TikTok influencer. Hooey, Dale Brisby's Ol Son, Kimes, Cactus Ropes, etc. If they are going out on a night on the town, they bust out a cowboy hat and tuck in the shirt. Don't forget the Oakleys, Ray Bans, or Maui Jims. Oh and they are driving a huge 4-door pickup, brands vary. Depends on if they are a Ford or Chevy man.
That's typical Amarillo.

Oh my gosh, we are political! The mud-slinging should be considered a sport in our great city. Even if Mr. Rogers were Mayor, someone would have something bad about the way he sang, Won't You Be My Neighbor.

We may be a little quirky, but when our community needs us, we all come together for the greater good. We are all about giving the shirts off our backs to help out our fellow man.
As, always, we are Amarillo, and that's a good thing!
