Americans love beef, and sometimes, bigger is better. We traveled across the country in search of the largest, juiciest and most succulent slabs of meat fit for the Flintstones. Grab a knife and a pen because you're going to want to write down the locations of the following restaurants and pay them a visit.
Midwesterners love their beef, and at Kelsey’s Steakhouse they serve up one of the largest cuts around: a 96-oz. steak. If you manage to finish one of these monstrous slabs of meat in an hour, you get a free steak and a T-shirt.
At Incanto they eat every part of the cow. Their specialty is a whole beef shank, otherwise known as "leg of beast." The only thing missing inside is a huge bonfire, but the chefs have that covered in the back.
Just a short drive from the Big Apple is Tweeds, where they serve buffalo, an animal that weighs about 2,000 lbs. This makes for some big slabs of meat. Tweeds serves up at least 10 different cuts of buffalo to local fans.
Each year Americans eat more than 13 billion beef patties. Mallie's offers 3-, 5- and 10-lbs. burgers. In 2008, Mallie's started to offer a 319-pounder challenge, which took the Guinness World Records' title for the largest burger.
