The Steak Ranch's slogan is "Home of the FREE 72oz Steak Dinner". Participants, or should I say "victims", have only one hour to eat a 72oz steak, salad, roll, shrimp cocktail and baked potato. It looks easier than it really is. The night I visited, a 20-something guy tried the challenge, but didn't succeed. The steak was literally is falling off his plate and was at least and inch and a half thick. The poor guy only ate about half of his dinner.
Amazingly enough, many have actually devoured the whole meal, but it had been nearly a month since anyone had when I visited.
For those such as I who aren't up for the challenge, but enjoy a thick juicy steak none-the-less the Big Texan Steak Ranch has other smaller versions available. I had a tender 14 oz. that melted in my mouth. Salad rolls and a baked potato come with your steak so come hungry and leave with your stomach poppin'. They sure know how to eat in Texas! If you order a beer, may I suggest the boot? Draft beer is served in a glass collectors boot.
