Amarillo could use a good non-chain, home-cooking restaurant. This isn't it. The food is salty and tastes like it is all pre-packaged or canned. The service is okay and the prices are low but that's about all the good I can say.

Stopped here to eat while passing through Amarillo and pleased We did. Would eat here again. My wife had the lite portion of roast with roast potatoes and Mac & cheese. Of course we sample each other's meals to get our own opinions and both agreed it was yummy. Roast was very tender & the gravy gave it a bold... More

As if the home cooking itself wasn't good enough, they serve you cinnamon rolls with your hot dinner rolls when you first arrive. We have been traveling out west and have started heading east towards home and we're delighted to find sweet tea at this establishment. They have a large menu with something for everybody and with moderate pricing. Any... More

We eat here every year when we visit Amarillo. Portions for huge even for lunch. Chicken fried steak & "wets" (gravy covered French fries) bring back memories from my childhood. Never leave hungry & love the fresh baked bread & cinnamon rolls too.

When I want real food with a choice of great veggies, this is where I wind up. Love the fresh bread they bring to the table asap and I don't usually eat bread. Hubby enjoys the cinnamon rolls they drop off at the same time. Speedy service and friendly wait staff make for a quick, delicious meal.

After driving over 700 miles today, we were looking for a restaurant with good food and boy did we find it! Calico County Restaurant was recommended to us by a gal in the gas station up the street. We didn't want anything fancy as we were too tired. This restaurant had great home cooking. I had the chicken fried chicken... More

Came here with a large group and the service and food were amazing. The basket of rolls and cinnamon buns were great. The staff kept coming by to make sure our basket was always full. The grilled chicken breast was extremely tender and juicy. The mashed potatoes and gravy were excellent along with the corn. The is my second time... More

Excellent home cooking style food. Fast service. They offer moderate portions or large portions. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for home-style cooking.

I have been going to Calico County with my family for a long time, and I have never had a bad experience or anything less than good, down-home comfort food, but recently those experiences have grown even better. My son has autism and is a little quirky. He has learned good behavior in restaurants, but he struggles with eye contact... More
