This is about an early May stay at Big Texan Motel.For the Motel:For the Desk Staff:The desk staff is bizarre. They don't say please or thank you. They stick out their paws and expect you to know what they want. (Credit card? License? Bribe?) If you say you want a room in a certain area, they might nod, but then they give you a room wherever they want.Their reservation system is: call and they say okay. No confirmation number, nothing. If you arrive and they 'lost' your reservation, you're screwed. And they're not very helpful about getting a place to stay. For the Rooms:Front section, ground floor room. I love the decor. The rooms were floor-to-ceiling clean, quiet, and dark when the lights were off. There were two queen sized beds. The fridge was approx 3CF and worked well. The shower was clean and a little small. All of the lights and fans worked in the bathroom. The heater/air conditioner worked great and quietly. When I arrived, it was 80º. The temperature dropped to 35º. The HAC kept up. The TV is huge with lots of channels. The WiFi is strong and fast. There was a huge rumbling and I thought the room would be too noisy. It was a hundred motorcyclists. After that, the room was quiet and dark.Comment:If Big Texan would get some polite, knowledgeable Texans at the front desk — and a reassuring reservation system — they would earn four or five stars.
I have been coming to Lauren Felder to get a men's haircut, style, and beard trim since she was still in cosmetology school. She is absolutely amazing at hair and she can do it all. She is a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Texas. Lauren is also Tigi trained. She can do any cut or color you want, men or women. Women she's amazing at ombré and highlights/lowlights, or anything else you might want. Men she's great at beard trimming if you want that neat all even look while still keeping a big beard. She does eye brow waxing also. These are just some of the things she offers in a nutshell. She believes in always continuing education to stay on top of her field. Tired of leaving salons like Braxton Paul or Wade Gordon unhappy with your hair? Overpaid for your cut or color at these "5 star salons"? Bottom line is that if you want a real 5 star experience, go to Lauren Felder. You will get better quality at a better price. That's a fact. I will continue to go to Lauren all my hair needs! She is a true dedication and talented professional! What are you waiting for? Make an appointment!!!
I guess I got spoiled eating Amarillo Hut's butter chicken curry, weekly, and expected the new Indian restaurant or It's A Punjabi Affair to have the same or better butter chicken curry. I was over the moon excited to find out that another Indian restaurant was replacing the the popular Amarillo Hut restaurant, after they decided to sell the place. I walked out of my car to check out the new place, and saw that they redid the outside patio, which is an improvement and I give them kudos for that. It is much more beautiful to look at however the actual food is just plain terrible. Their butter chicken curry tastes so watered down, it is terrible. It made me almost want to spit it out and vomit.
