LOL - That's GOT
to be the "Free 72-oz steak" at The Big Texan
in Amarillo, TX.
It's not really "eat one - get one free". It's eat it within an hour and get it for free - or you pay for it .... here are the rules
As far as I know (according to the records) only 2 people have been able to polish off 2 steaks (9 lbs of cow + 2 salads, 2 shrimp cocktails, 2 rolls) in the 1-hour time limit. Klondike Bill, a professional wrestler, back in the 1960s - and Richard LaFeare who chomped his way through 2 steaks on the "Donny & Marie Osmond Show" in 2000.
I've eaten there a dozen times or so ... when I was living in Golden, CO and driving back and forth for Christmas and summer vacations ... Amarillo was my 1/2 way point - always put on the feedbag there and spent the night.
I can scarf down a bunch of cow - but when you stand there and look at a 4.5-lbs slab (to be consumed within 60-minutes) .... I pass.
But - they do have great
