“Down-home BBQ until they sell out!”
My name is Tyler Frazer and I am originally from Amarillo Texas. For the past 4 years, I have been working for a promotional company doing large catered events. When I took the job I was fulfilling a set goal to work large events and gain the skills that I would need to open a barbeque restaurant. The job was working for Mrs. Bairds Ultimate Smoker and Grill. “The Grill” is the world’s largest transportable smoker. The first summer I worked for the “The Grill,” we did stops from Kansas City to Seattle to San Francisco. We catered many venues ranging from lunch for Albertson’s Corporate Headquarters (about 350 people) to the LA Children’s Hospital. Where we stopped traffic on Sunset Blvd. and fed everyone at the hospital (about 3500 people). Then we tailgated the Big Twelve tour and cooked anywhere from 4500 hotdogs a week up to a whopping 9200 hotdogs at the Texas/OU game. We catered approximately 100 events per year.
During my time with “The Grill” I became proficient at catering logistics and large scale food preparation. In addition to my last four years with “The Grill,” I have been in and around the consumable business over the last 20 years. I worked at a “Mom and Pop” barbeque while I was in college. In addition, for many years I was the consumables buyer for a national retailer that had 160 stores from Washington to Tennessee. During my 8 years at that company I excelled in the consumable category.
My experience as a buyer combined with my experience working in the food industry has given me a great unique skill set. This is not an accidental path that I have been traveling. I intentionally put the plan in motion to start a Barbeque over five years ago. And I took advantage of having the world’s largest smoker and grill to learn as much as I could about cooking for large groups and honing my skills on producing tasty food. I took advantage of my travels to sample all the local barbeque places along the way.I am a goal setter and have clear direction and focus on the direction I want to go.
It's tough to say any place in Texas has better BBQ than another since it's so competitive, but I will say Tyler's has some of the nicest damn people in Texas. And the BBQ is good too!
I don't think there are nicer people any where in Amarillo. The brisket had a great smoke flavor and the ribs fell off the bone. If you are driving highway 40 thru Amarillo don't ear any where else!
THIS PLACE IS CLOSED
BEST BBQ Ever, Smoked Mac n Cheese was even better than my own. The Pulled pork melts in your mouth like cotton candy.
Great food and atmosphere! Gets crowded at lunch time but people were friendly and willing to share a table. Be sure to go on Thursday for the Mac n cheese! Worth the trip
I'm gonna be honest, I only remember one thing about my lunch at Tyler's and that is the green chile grilled onion mac and cheese. I'm sure the meat was great, but holy cow that mac and cheese was so good. They only serve it on Thursdays, and I was just passing through Amarillo, so I lucked out, but if you can plan your trip here, go on Thursday and order it before they run out.
Fantastisk service og mat! Et must å stoppe og spise :)
This has to be the best BBQ in the Panhandle. Grest find.
This is really great BBQ bring your appetite and go there early because when they sell out they run out... If you purchase a meal that you have two sides to choose from make one of them peach cobbler you will not regret it. Cole slaw and potato salad are good too
