This past Saturday I celebrated my 44th birthday. (Oh, and thank you for the “happy birthdays” that you sent my way on Facebook and Twitter). We’ve never had big celebrations when it comes to birthdays. Our normal birthday routine consists of a couple of presents, a cake and your choice of where you want to eat.
Since we were in Amarillo on my birthday, I chose to eat at the Coyote Bluff cafe. If you are a fan of the television show “Man vs Food” that comes on the Travel Channel, you may have seen the show where Adam eats at the Coyote Bluff cafe (here’s the clip). I chose the “Burger from Hell” and it WAS smoking hot and very good. This spicy burger comes loaded with jalapenos, habanero sauce and Tabasco. We also had the cheese fries, which is 2 pounds of fries topped with 1 pound of cheddar cheese, Monterey jack cheese and green chilies. I’m usually a healthy eater, but boy did I splurge on this meal.
It was also a day of desserts. My dad made me an apple pie, my favorite. My friend Becky made me banana pudding, my other favorite. And then about dark, a friend showed up with the biggest apple pie I’ve ever seen. They were all amazing. I will be running extra miles this week.
Here are a few pictures…
Coyote Bluff may look rough on the outside, but it was full of customers on the inside, and I don’t know how many people they turned away when they closed for their afternoon break.
Three pounds of fries, cheese and green chilies.
Burgers are the specialty, and the Burger from Hell is one of the biggest sellers.
The “Burger from Hell” had my lips burning.

The amazing, gigantic and delicious apple pie.
