While doing a little research for cheap eats for our trip to Las Vegas this January, I came upon the following special at the Western Casino & Hotel. Now, this is an old joint near the downtown area...899 E Fremont St... patronized by questionable locals and not recommended after dark. That said:
Are you ready to eat?
Now serving the 9 pound "Big Daddy Barrick Burger." Served with a bun 12" in diameter, a half head of lettuce, two tomatoes, two onions, four pickles, mayo, mustard and 12 slices of American cheese, the burger big enough to feed a softball team is available for $29.99. If one person finishes the burger within 24 hours, itís free. If the "Big Daddy Barrick Burger" is a bit much, it only takes finishing the 1 Ĺ pound "Barrick Burger" within 30 minutes to earn a spot on the "Barrick Burger Wall of Fame." The Plaza Diner and the Western Hotel and Casino both offer the scaled-down, though still enormous, "Barrick Burger" for $8.99. It is prepared with an oversized bun and three times the lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayo, mustard and American cheese of a normal burger. Both the "Big Daddy Barrick Burger" and the "Barrick Burger" are served with a side of fries and Maalox![smilie=3,26,34]
