The one thing we can say about Amarillo is that we have plenty of places to eat. It doesn't matter what kind of food you want we have you covered. Amarillo has changed over the years and we have gained new and different places to eat.

When you go out to eat you want to make sure your money is well spent. You want to go somewhere that you can trust to have a clean restaurant. You want it to be a great experience. Living in Amarillo we count on the health inspectors doing their job. Oh, and they do.

All my years working at a restaurant we know the fear when we hear that a health inspector is walking through the doors. Even though we always knew we kept the place in tip-top shape there is still that fear.

We know that they do a great job making sure when we are visiting a restaurant it is going to be safe to eat in. The food will be kept safe. The staff has their food handling certification.

The food will not get you sick. It has been stored and handled correctly. There is so much that goes into passing inspection. Oh, but when a restaurant passes with flying colors we have even more confidence going out to eat.
