5 Quick Amarillo Lunches
It’s the same old problem day after day… lunchtime rolls around and you only have a short amount of time to run out, grab something, and get it down before you have to be back on duty at work. Yes, you would love to go to a cool place, sit down, order, take your time eating, and casually get back to work. But let’s be honest, ain’t noboby got time for that!
I struggle with this everyday, so here is my picks for some of the 5 fastest ways to get lunch in Amarillo. Note: I left out the usual fast-food suspects like McDonalds, Whataburger, and Taco Bell since we already know they are quick and sometimes you just don’t want the same fare everyday.
Jason’s has some very good food with lots of choices. To make it a quick experience, order online then go to the location and use the dedicated carry-out door to grab your order. Since you paid online, you are all set.
A great BBQ joint with a drive-up window? Yes please! Crazy Larry’s drive-thru is crazy fast and very friendly service. They do a great job of keeping the bbq ready to serve so you don’t spend much time at all waiting in the line. Go with the Frito Pie (make it a moose) for a very tasty lunch.
This place makes the list for a couple reasons. First, they are quick to serve and have a drive thru for convenience. Second, they are something unique, which is nice to take a break once in a while from the same old fare. Look out for their daily specials. Oh, and the portions can be huge!
Dash in to grab a fresh salad or something home-style off the hot foods bar. Good variety featuring smoked beef brisket, macaroni & cheese, and fried chicken. Many of the stores even have a dedicated check-out line for this area so you don’t have to wait on the rest of the grocery shoppers.
Good food, good prices, and good at handling a large lunch crowd. The parking lot can get a little cramped, so it’s never a bad idea to go a little before or after the lunch crowd. Fun place to carry out or take a couple minutes to sit and eat.
