I’ve been there twice. Watched the ordeal. Didn’t participate.
They put you up on a stage and you get to eat in front of everybody. You have to eat the sides too, not just the steak, in order to get the free meal.
I have a great story about a friend who was with me both times and married our waitress a few months later. We went there, met her, and came back the following night because she and he hit it off the first night.
She just ran off and left him last summer after 10 years of hell on earth. Gold diggin’, cheatin’ bitch if there ever was one.
Anyway, that’s the Cliff Notes version of my visits to the Big Texan.
Push always has the best stories.
The thing I don’t like about it is the time limit(at least there is a time limit at Texas Roadhouse here). I think I could handle the thing no problem, but not in under ten minutes. What the hell is the point of eating if you can’t enjoy it?
I’m all about that place with the 10 pound burger.
First of all, it’s not 10 minutes at the Big Texan. I can’t remember exactly but it’s plenty of time.
Regarding the waitress my buddy married, it was good for a few months. Met her in January '98. We (wife and I) went skiing with them at Taos a couple of months after we met her. I went to their wedding in June of that year. That Christmas she flew back to Colorado where she was from and cheated on him. Yeah, six months after the “I do” she was receiving “penetrative sex” (a new term I learned yesterday over at the University of the SAMA) from an old boyfriend.
Last summer my friend told me that 45 minutes before their wedding began she was sitting in the bedroom with no makeup on, no hair done and no wedding dress on. Sitting there looking depressed.
She had confided in my wife a couple of times a few years ago that she was disappointed that my buddy didn’t have the money she thought he had when he was courting her.
There. Now you have the slightly expanded version. If I told you some more things she did to him it would blow you away.
I almost am.
Damnit Push, you always have something interesting to post.
Holy crap! Tell more if you feel like sharing. Sucks big time ass for you buddy though.
