Gas station snacks will only get you so far. When you’re ready for some real sustenance, turn into the Big Texan. This Amarillo institution serves a hearty menu of sandwiches, ribs, chicken fried chicken, and steaks and even houses an on-site brewery. But you’re here for the 72-Ounce Steak Challenge. Participants face off against a full table of food, including shrimp cocktail, salad, bread and a baked potato in addition to that gargantua gut-buster. If you polish your plate within an hour, the whole thing is on the house. And if you don’t, it’ll cost you $72—plus a lack of bragging rights—but that’s still a pretty good deal, pound for pound.
