Location: TexasTop Cities: San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Austin, AmarilloCity Spotlight: AmarilloWelcome to the city so beautiful it inspired a CMA award-winning song for both Music Video of the Year and Song of the year!Top Food:Tyler’s BBQ: Get your bibs out for this Amarillo favorite listed among the top 50 barbecue joints in Texas. All of their sides are made fresh including the mouth-watering Mac n Cheese which is only sold on Thursdays and goes fast!The Big Texan: Famous for their world-class steaks and featured on Food Network’s Man vs Food and in National Geographic, this Texas bbq joint is home to the 72oz Challenge.

If you eat a 72-oz steak in under an hour, you get it for free, including a shrimp cocktail, baked potato, salad, and a roll!Biti Pies: This unique little bakery has also been featured on Food Network and rightly so because their personal-size pies like Chocolate Pecan, German Chocolate, and Buttercream are the stuff of sweet dreams.Top Entertainment:Located along Route 66, this town has plenty of quirky little things to do! Route 66 is also known as the Will Rodgers Highway and Main Street of America and is one of the original US Highways beginning in California and stretching all the way to Chicago, IL.
