The Big Texan is a glorious restaurant and fun tourist trap in the panhandle of Texas. If you're a big eater, you can try the steak challenge and attempt to down a 72-oz steak (nicknamed 'the Texas King') meal, which also includes a salad, bread and butter, a baked potato, ranch beans, and a shrimp cocktail. If you can finish all this in under an hour, it's free. If not, it'll cost you 72 bucks. Only about 8,000 people out of 48,000 have ever been successful in their feasting attempts.
Once you've finished your delicious meal (they have normal sized steaks as well) there is a motel across the street. ...Just in case you need to rest up after your over-indulgence.
IF YOU GO: Be hungry. Wear loose pants.
They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner 7 days a week, from 7 am to 10:30 pm. Dinner prices range from $15-$72...or...free...
WHEN TO VISIT: Any time you want a big steak, or want to earn bragging rights!
