CALICO COUNTY – AMARILLO, TX., JULY 2012
On our return trip to Austin from Colorado, we once again stopped in Amarillo for the night. A special friend from college recommended we try Calico Country for dinner for some good homestyle cooking. The menu is extensive and includes several home cookin’ favorites.
Here are the entrees we ordered – many of them come with a “lite” (aka smaller portion) option.
I ordered the pot roast with potatoes and pinto beans (my all-time favorite “bean”). No, I did not finish all the food on my plate. Turns out they accidentally gave me a REGULAR portion instead of the “lite”.
Everyone at the table agreed that the food was good; nothing earth shattering, just good, old home-style cookin’. Now we have not one, but TWO new spots to eat when we are traveling through Amarillo – yeah!!
PS – See our earlier post for our Mexican food excursion in the “Helium Capital of the World”.
