      The Big Texan Steak Ranch 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.

      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.. Any time you want a big steak, or want to earn bragging rights!
