7 EXTREME MEAT Dishes in Atlanta
1. Bone Lick BBQ
Bone Lick BBQ offers the "Fat Ass Muff Challenge," in which contenders attempt to eat a five-pound sandwich filled with pulled pork, house smoked sausage, smoked brisket, collard greens, onions, jalapeno-infused bacon, and homemade coleslaw. Note this photo is on a platter, not a plate. The sandwich is about the size of a baby.
2. Cypress Street Pint & Plate
Get a sugar rush with Cypress Street's Sublime burger. This half-pound beef patty comes with the standard cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, and bacon, but this burger is served between two donuts from Sublime Doughnuts.
3. Shula's 347 Grill
Shula's 347 Grill offers a massive, 48-ounce steak. Those able to finish the whole thing are inducted into the special 48oz. Club.
4. Folk Art Restaurant
Folk Art dips strips of apple bacon in pancake batter, fries them, and drizzles on bourbon maple syrup. This creation is known by one name: The Randy.
5. The Vortex Bar & Grill
The Triple Coronary Bypass at Vortex consists of three burger patties, three fried eggs, 14 slices of American cheese, and 10 slices of bacon between two grilled cheese sandwiches. It may literally stop your heart.

Because beef franks aren't enough, the Fryinstein Monster at Pallookaville Fine Foods combines beef frank, Polish kielbasa, and Italian sausage on one fried stick the size of a small child.
