If you’ve missed the unique vibe and cuisine from Cowboy Gelato, formally housed on historic Sixth Street, head to the south end of the city to find the new Cowboy Gelato Smokehouse located on Coulter. You’ll find a beefed-up menu and full bar, along with the eatery’s namesake hand-made gelato.
Smoke is the name of the game at the reconfigured Cowboy Gelato Smokehouse. Smoked steaks, seafood, chicken-fried rib-eyes, barbecue-style pizzas, pork tenderloin, and street tacos dominate the bountiful menu. And if you’re a fan of Cajun-style cooking, Cowboy Gelato offers its own twist on zesty etouffee or crawfish and grits (pictured).
Sip a cocktail from the “Mule Corral”, which features renditions of the popular drink, or choose from a lineup of Texas wines and craft beer on tap and by the bottle. Now one of the few locations in southwest Amarillo to offer live entertainment, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy music from local artists on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
The latest venture from the Smokehouse is its intimate dinner-and-live-music evening event on Sundays this fall. Once a month, fill up on a prix fixe meal – either a Steakout or a Boilout – which gives guests the opportunity to try a new cut of steak with all the fixings, or a traditional crawfish, shrimp and sausage boil. Steakout features a live Country music show, and a Boilout is paired with the Blues. Watch Facebook for information on these limited-seating, reservation-only dinners.
Open Monday through Wednesday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
