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.
Riscky's BBQ has been feeding the people of Texas since 1927. The family-run business serves up 2,000-lbs. of ribs a day and a secret sauce that will knock your 10-gallon hat off.
For those who can't get enough prime rib, Ward's offers an 8-oz. to 124-oz. cut of beef! Every time someone finishes a bigger cut than the last, they get their prime rib named after them.
Tweeds Restaurant and Buffalo Bar
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.
There are big sandwiches, and then there are Big-Ass Sandwiches. Each sandwich has 2 lbs. of beef, a pound of fries and cheese sauce. Big-Ass Sandwiches will guarantee you won't leave hungry.
Mallie's Sports Grill and Bar
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.
