Starting in 1960 a cowboy eating contest set the bar at the eatery. If you can suck down the giant steak, a bread roll with butter, a baked potato, shrimp cocktail, and a salad in an hour or less - the meal is free. If ya fail, ya gotta cough up $72.
As of February 2018, 62,000 have humiliated themselves attempting the over-eating feat. Still an astonishing 9,500 ate it all and went home with a free meal and a whole night of sweating and pooping.
Who's the top steak eating dog?
Joey Chestnut took 8 minutes and 52 seconds to break Frank Pastore's 1987 record of 9 minutes 30 seconds.
Then in 2018 along came Molly Schuyler, weighing in at 124 pounds. The maven ate not one, not two but THREE 72 oz. steak dinners in 20 minutes fat, uh I mean flat.
But wait. Only humans can play? In 1999 a 500lb Siberian tiger inhaled the food in 90 seconds. But the beast was quickly bested by a lioness in 2012 who vaporized the meal in 80 seconds.
We'll end here....for now.
