This story isn't mine, but a guy in my office recently tried one of the "finish it and eat free" cahllenges with a 42 ounce steak. Not only did the guy finish it with a smile, he ate his bread, sides, the ordered a friggin dessert. He's not a fatty and there was no vomit. That's like two punches on the man card right there, one more he could have had a free stripper. Or bacon.

A whole 16" pizza with one topping and extra cheese.

Another time I ate a Chipotle burrito and a burrito bowl with a bag of chips (I was planning on saving the bowl for later...). Both the burrito and bowl had extra beans, cheese and corn salsa too.

Oh the good ole days when I could eat as much as I wanted and not feel like crap or regret it.

When I was in Jr High, Pizza Hut had an all you can eat buffet, so we decided to have an eating contest to see who eat the most, I ate 28 slices of various kinds of pizza. I can maybe eat 8-10 these days but stop at 4-6.

I can't put on big eating displays myself once I get to a certain point I'm done....I doubt I could put down more then like 5 slices of pizza max.

But one of my buddies did an impressive feat one time. He went to White Castle and did the Harold and Kumar order....30 sliders and 5 fries....and actually completed it. I honestly do not wanna know what it feels like after eating 30 White Castle sliders.

@raider9924: I imagine it feels like you need to poop.

My largest meals have to be:

The Dagwood Challenge at Ohio Deli
The Therminator Challenge at Therman's
3 Chipoltes Burritos (bet)

I always feel like crap afterwards which is why I don't do it very often... I now prefer the heat-challenges like the Atomic (and soon Triple Atomic) challenge at Quaker Steak & Lube.

I've gorged at many a buffet, especially Chinese, making it hard to quantify the amount of food I've actually consumed in one sitting. Several plates worth of greasy Chinese is a worthy feat!

At age 14, after working in the hot summer sun picking strawberries in an Oregon field all day, having forgotten my lunch - an entire chocolate layer cake that was supposed to be for the family dessert that night. My mother couldn't decide whether to beat me half to death or make me throw it up. She ended up doing nothing - she was utterly defeated by the amazement of it all.

Once ate 3 orders of escargot on a cruise. Cancelled my salmon entree. Did eat dessert...don't remember what it was. Escargot is not a huge amount of food, but is very, very rich. I obviously loved it. Would do it again in a heartbeat. If the heart is still beating... :-|

Ahhh. Can we have "biggest" meals?

Used to be a restaurant in the area called the New Orleans. The food was excellent and it was an all-you- can-eat seafood buffet for $30, if I recall correctly. We'd skip breakfast and lunch the day we'd go and then fill up on shrimp, crab legs, oysters and more. We definitely over ate.

I also love blue crab. I've gotten the all-you-can-eat special at Cantler’s waterfront restaurant in Annapolis, Maryland and gotten way too full on 30-40 crabs with sides.

Another great all-you-can-eat crab special is at Captain Pell's in Fairfax. Last time I was there, I was still working on crab when they cut me off ... closing time. I was one #27 as I recall. ;-)

I'm either really proud of this or really ashamed...can't decide.

I was on a Caribbean cruise with my friends. When I realized that you could order as much as you wanted of anything on the menu, I bet my friend a handle of Jack that I could eat everything on the menu. I didn't eat lunch, and drank only digestive enzymes while eating to speed up the digestion process. I had to leave once to use the restroom but was back in like 4 minutes.

It totaled to 6 appetizers and 5 whole entrees. While swallowing the last bites of the pasta in the last entree (eggplant parmesan, I believe), I was having serious gag reflexes. Good thing my stomach was stretched from the previous 4 days of over-drinking, or there's no way a 140lb male would be able to pull that off. :)

@dmaz: Know what you mean about the limitless food on cruises. It's tempting.... I so enjoy each bite & never force myself to eat anything. To me, that's the pleasure of selecting from all that food. Depending on the cruise line, the food can be absolutely delicious. Like a buffet on land, but more. And continuous. ::small dainty burp::

@dmaz: That's classic. Cruise on my friend, and be very proud.

as a teen, used to get kicked out of all - you - can -eat Pizza joints... sit down with a plate, and a soda glass, then make 4 to 6 trips to the pizza bar... somewhere around the 3rd or 4th pizza worth, a manager would come inquire how we were doing, if we were full yet, if he could do anything for us, and then ask us to go find food elsewhere...

@devexityspace: they're going TRIPPLE atomic?! thank god, I always thought it was kinda weak. now i'm excited! I'm a big fan of of the BWW's wing challenge as well.

I think my second (or maybe third) visit to the Brazilian steakhouse at Niagara Falls (Ontario side) was likely my largest feast ever. It's the kind of steakhouse where the waiters carry around 4 foot skewers of roasted meat and give you as much as you want of whatever you want. We got there around 7:30 and stayed until they closed, at one point I had 3 waiters with skewers at my table at the same time asking what else I wanted.

I don't know what the total volume of food was that I consumed, but the manager was impressed. There were over a dozen different cuts of meat on the menu and I had every one of them at least once excluding the lobster. Waiters who were down to their last cut on their skewer were stopping at my table on their way out to offer whatever they had to me just because they heard of how much I was eating that night.

Thankfully my hotel room was only a couple blocks away...

Churiscaria's rule... First one I went to used swords for the Meat Skewers... Nothing says Manly meal, like a waitress carving half a prime rib onto your plate using a short sword to cut it down, and a long sword to hold it...

@benyust2: The first Chipotle outside of Colorado opened on the campus where I did my undergraduate studies. Hungry college students + $5 burritos the size of small children = friggin' gold mine. Not long after I graduated they opened a second location on the opposite side of the same campus.

I never ate two in one sitting, though I did eat two in one day. I remember the day - election day 2000 - because anyone with an "I Voted" sticker got a free burrito. So I had one for lunch and a second later for dinner.

@waltertangofoxtrot: I think the wait staff was all male at that restaurant, though there were female dancers. In hindsight I probably would have eaten more if not for those pesky dancers...

@lparsons42: we had a mix of waiters/waitresses at the brazilian place I went to... They were all pushy like your Grandma too... "you Must try the chipoltle tenderloin" "you have to have the stewed pork" "move that brisket over on your plate, so I can put this seasonal elk steak on there!" "you can't be done already, you've only been here an hour! Come on, and try some of this duck!" The after-poop on that was epic.

My friends and I would go to an all you can eat chinese buffet and my friend skinny little guy could down 7 fully packed plates EACH TIME!!!
I tried but broke down after 2 He clames that only drinking will make him full so he does not drink a drop while he eats.

Way back when they first came out (and when I also smoked a good amount of pot), I ate two Pizza Hut pzone's in one sitting. That made me pretty damn ill.

I also once ate an entire large pizza from this crappy pizza place nearby. I guess they use some really crappy cheese or something but the preservatives in the pizza gave me a rash and a minor allergic reaction.

I wouldn't say in one sitting as I was walking around, but I was in high school and I was the captain of our culinary team. I was able to get my team into a food show in Orlando and though you get small amounts of food to sample from the vendors you can keep going back and getting more. It felt like we ate our weight in food and we kept sampling everything. It is nice to fill up on all kinds of food from all over the world. The next day is not so much fun though. You learn to limit what you eat and from which booths you eat.

Back in "the day" I used to be able to pack away massive amounts of food at buffets. Were talking 6 or 7 trips with full plates. I had a friend who would go with me who once put away 9 sirloin steaks in one visit. Now I'm good for 2-3 trips before I'm bursting at the seems.

I did the whole large pizza thing in college too. My stomach was protruding and it hurt so bad. My girlfriend started poking at it in amazement and I threw up.

I ate an entire 5 lb 10 oz. marie calerenders lasagna a few days ago. I felt like I was pregnant for the rest of the night but it sure was delicious
