If there's one thing I know about Texans it's that they love their beef. The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo knows too. Famous for its larger-than-life dining experience and its 72-ounce steak challenge (which reminds me of a family roast), this establishment has gained the attention of folks from all over the world.

The 72-ounce steak challenge is not for the faint of heart...or stomach. To complete the challenge, diners must consume a massive 72-ounce (4.5 pounds) steak, along with a baked potato, shrimp cocktail, salad, and a dinner roll. They have to finish the entire meal within one hour to earn the title of a Big Texan "Steak Champion."
