Vic’s is dishing out a massive 28-inch pizza pie loaded with six pounds of toppings. To get it, you’ll have to accept the Godfather challenge, which gives you just 30 minutes to finish it. If you do, you’ll be part of Vic’s history.

This burger chain is serving up what is aptly named the Hot Mess. Imagine a grilled cheese sandwiched between two succulent beef patties, then topped with a grilled hot dog, chili, three types of cheeses, bacon, onion straws, lettuce, tomato, and a fried pickle. Good luck getting all of these things in a single bite—make sure you ask for extra napkins.
Featured on Food Network, this heaping helping of chicken and waffles is big enough to share. Standing tall, you get crispy fried buttermilk chicken, bacon waffle, tomato, lettuce, their signature whole grain mustard aioli, and melty Swiss cheese. There’s no better way to start your morning.
They call it the Cobra Commander: four seven-ounce patties, four slices of cheese, six thick-cut strips of bacon, a half-pound of chili, and onion straws, all held together by two ham and cheese sandwiches. If you can eat it and the six tater bombs that come with it in under 45 minutes, you don’t pay for it.
If you’re in need of a Philly fix, you might get more than you bargained for here. They’re serving up a whopping five pounds of Philly cheesesteak and fries using ingredients that come straight from Philly itself. You won’t want to stop until the last bite disappears.
How hungry would you have to be to polish off an 80-ounce steak? This colossal cut of beef is loaded with flavor (and calories), but if you can finish it you’ll be a hometown hero.
It’s not quite as daunting as the 80-ouncer at Thorny’s, but Breck’s Steakhouse’s 30-ounce sirloin isn’t for the weak eater. If you’re with a friend, they also offer the Sirloin for 2, which is a combined 60 ounces of beef, plus all the fixings.
Located on the USC-Sumter campus, the Fire Ant Cafe knows that no one knows food like a college student. Their Ant Attack burger brings you five juicy beef patties, three slices of American cheese, and two slices of spicy ghost pepper cheese, all tucked between three buns. You also get fries and a soda included in your meal—just $12!
Breakfast food is so good, it’s hard to choose a select few. That’s why Henry’s created the Hungry Bennett. This massive hash brown casserole has a little bit of everything in it, so you never have to pick sides again. Chicken fried steak, bacon, sausage, eggs, cheese, and homemade sausage gravy complete the experience.
This sub shop chain has four locations in South Carolina, and their name says it all. If you’ve got a crowd to feed, you’ll want to grab a six-foot sub here. Each gorilla-sized sub is specially prepared and fully loaded. It almost looks too good to eat.
