We also pass by the legendary Big Texas Steak House (exit 75). Normally we don’t advertise for businesses in our videos (yet), but as this is a Route 66 icon (even though Route 66 is a few miles north at this point) and a major tourist trap, so we figured we would include it in the video.
It is, unfortunately, late afternoon as we make our way into Amarillo, so the sun is almost dead ahead. Luckily, Amarillo was a stop-over city for us and we have footage (2 videos down the list) of Interstate 40 East through the western half of town.
Along this route, the interstate overlaps the old Route 66 and at one time was signed as Route 66. We have marked such segments in this and all future videos with appropriate signage during the overlap.
