I enjoy Tylers in Amarillo. Not the best bbq in Texas, but its great bbq made by fantastic people.

As for the Big Texan, its a tourist trap with decent steak, but I think it's worth a visit for the experience.

The Big Texan is an institution. I read about them in National Geographic in the 70s. Always dreamed of going there. Yes, it's a tourist trap, but what's wrong with tourist traps? I love tourist traps. It is Americana!

Anyway, there are so many routes you can go. If you head directly north out of Phoenix, one of my favorites is another tourist trap in Flagstaff called Black Bart's. The food is good, but the entertainment is some of the best. The waitstaff are primarily drama students at NAU and they perform song and dance routines during the meal. Nothing like having your waitress drop off your food and hop on stage to sing. Kitschy, maybe, but definitely a LOT of fun. If you're taking I10 east, then be sure to stop and see The Thing at Texas Canyon near Bisbee, Arizona. Another wonderful tourist trap. If you stay in Las Cruces, be sure to eat at the Double Eagle in Mesilla to get a feel for a luxurious old west restaurant. Sunday brunch is fabulous.

If you're traveling I-40, I suggest two NM food restaurants in ABQ:
Monica's El Portal on Rio Grande (the sopapilla's taste like donuts) or Azul's on 12th & Mountain (Carne Adovada, get the queso bowl).

I-10 route requires a side trip to either Iron Door BBQ in Silver City, or Sparky's in Hatch (Former state champ for green chile cheeseburger). Both are closed early in the week, may not fit your schedule
