    'World's Largest' Chicken Fried Steak Served in Fort Worth



    FORT WORTH, Texas - A Fort Worth restaurant is boasting the biggest, baddest breaded beef in the world: a four-pound slab of top round, that, after being coated in panko crumbs, deep fried and slathered in cream gravy, weighs about ten pounds and packs a whopping 10,000 calories.

    The Cowtown Diner started serving the "Full O Bull" platter when it opened in January. Since then, the restaurant has dished up about 15 orders of the bovine behemoth complete with sides: six pounds of mashed potatoes and ten slices of Texas toast.

    How many fat grams are packed in such a preposterous meal?

    "We were afraid to calculate that," said Scott Jones, owner of the Cowtown Diner. "We also didn't want to figure out the Weight Watchers points."

    So who eats this thing? According to Jones, just about everyone.

    "Couples, groups of four," he said. "I had a table of six college guys try one the other night, and they had to take the rest home in a doggy bag."

    If you're brave enough to tackle the $70 mammoth meal by yourself, you'll get it for free. You don't even have to eat it in a certain time limit. You just have to eat it all: steak, potatoes, gravy and toast.

    So far, Jones said, no one has swallowed the challenge.

    But everyone enjoys the spectacle. The "Full O Bull" must be ordered 24 hours in advance so the chefs can procure the special cut of beef. Preparation takes a full 45 minutes.

    And everyone in the restaurant knows if you've ordered it: not only is the colossal cut of cow served on something resembling a pizza pan, its delivery to your table is accompanied by the entire wait staff parading through the restaurant with cowbells and musical triangles.

    The Cowtown Diner is at 350 Main St. in downtown Fort Worth, Texas.

    It looks like a pile of diarrhea with vomit on top.

    I'm surprised this hasn't made the This Is Why You're Fat blog. I suppose it will soon enough.

    No chicken involved, it's just that it's steak that is fried like fried chicken. Never been a fan, and cream gravy is revolting.

    Me, too. That doesn't look good at all, though. Anyone finishing that meal off by themselves would probably drop dead immediately afterwards.

    These kind of things are just weird and funny anomalies that are there just to have a laugh at, and for publicity. I think they are hilarious. I have heard of different ones, including a huge steak that is like 6 pounds(maybe somewhere like Amarillo?) where, if you can eat the whole thing, you get if for free.

    I think these things are amusing. But it does look gross as hell.

    This would be a fun challenge for a bulemic-with stretched stomachs they could scarf this down. Hey you just have to get the whole meal down-if you puke it up 15 minutes later you still should not have to pay for it.

    I knew a bulemic small thin woman who won a pancake contest by eating 47 pancakes-beating a big 300 pound behemoth of a guy. She won money for it too! Threw it all up afterwards.

    ok..now I have even grossed myself out...*leaves thread*

    Are you surprised? This is the same state that gave us Chicken-Fried Bacon and Fried Coke after all.
