      I once convinced myself to order and finish a 48 oz. steak at Shula's steak house so that I could get my name on a plaque on the wall, and could barely move at the end of the meal. Great steak, but it was tough going. I can't imagine finishing off a four-pounder.

        I have eaten at the Big Texan in Amarillo, TX before. I did not order the big steak though. I think the Mayor's son has done it and finished it?

          Yes, Two my boys did it while I enjoyed a smaller order. At least i didn't have to pay for their meals...except for the snoring in the truck far into Oklahoma !!

          I must admit I would like to visit some of the places in the story. I am beyond the point where I would tackle a huge steak alone...but sharing one would be a fun experience. To me, that 64 oz Porterhouse looks pretty darn good !

            That 64 oz Porterhouse is GOOD. I had to get it medium (so the center would be a little warm), it took everything I had to finish it.

            I think it was around $90 for the steak, they also have really good crabcakes and AWESOME, and I do mean AWESOME potato pancakes.

              They all look very good to me. Looks like I hit the butcher on the way home from work this afternoon.

                I do not know how anyone could consume a 64 ounce steak. I do well to eat a 8 ounce job. Even then I have some left over.

                    I'd do well to manage a 6 oz steak... but I have a very small stomach and small portion tolerance. Yet it still baffles me how some people have the capacity to put away 4 or 5 pounds of food in one sitting. And not just the 64-oz. steaks... that's mild compared to some competitive eaters I've seen.
