This unassuming eatery may be hidden within the Amarillo Livestock Auction facilities, but Youngblood’s Stockyard Cafe’s Texas-size, home-cooked meals don’t cower to the boisterous action next door.

The chicken-fried steak is the best-selling item on the menu, and it’s so tender you can cut it with a plastic fork. Vicki, who shares the reins with husband Tim Youngblood, has her own version of CFS, which is just as tender but comes with a homespun twist: It’s smothered with green chile sauce, country gravy and served with a dollop of cheddar jack mashed potatoes. The all-day breakfast and diverse lunch specials are just as enticing, too.

Youngblood’s Stockyard Cafe, 101 S. Manhattan, 342-9411,

Open Monday through Thursday, 6:30 a.m.-2 p.m., Friday 6:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5-8:30 p.m.,
and Saturday 6:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
