Admit it, sometimes cooking for the whole family can be a headache, especially around the holiday season.

The last few years, my family's tradition for Thanksgiving has been to go to a really nice hotel that is doing a Thanksgiving brunch.

Once you factor in the groceries, your time to prepare, and the cleanup, it is just as economical to pay to go out. Same goes for Christmas! But which area restaurants can you count on to be open on December 25th? Here are 10 Amarillo restaurants that will be open on Christmas day. Bon Appetit!
