Holy crap!! 7X7 from Steak N Shake...

Taste: Dayton food and restaurants | www.daytondailynews.com

Quote:
Steak ‘n Shake restaurants have hired more workers to accommodate a new “All-nighter” menu that includes a new “7X7” sandwich with seven hamburger patties and seven slices of American cheese.
The sandwich, called the “7X7,” is priced at $7.77. It contains 1,330 calories, 98 grams of fat, 45 grams of saturated fat and 4,490 milligrams of sodium, according to the “nutrition facts” page of Steak ‘n Shake’s own web site . The sandwich’s 98 grams of fat is about 150 percent of the Food and Drug Administration’s recommended intake of fat for an entire day.
This would be the type of sandwich you share with about 3-4 other people...I can't imagine one person eating the whole thing.

I've never been a huge fan of their menu, other than the bean crock and milk shakes...other than that, I don't stop there anyway.

1300 calories is not that much, considering the massive amount of food that is. 5G sodium and 98g fat though, oof

A truly grissely garage sized burger ,you could get a sizable good burger with a better range of flavor goodies on it rather than 7 patties that are probably 50% 50% in fat vs meat content to be honest.

Not sure i agree with your assessment. I always found Steak and Shake to be ground sirloin, and generally a decent burger- not grissely.
Having said that, I would never touch a 7X7--or even want to watch anyone else eat one.

You can get a single sirloin burger; the 7X7 is not the only thing on the menu.

UP ALL NIGHT is the perfect name for that menu item.

I'd spend the first third of the night night trying to eat it, the second third of the night puking it back up, and the last third on the toilet all day crying my eyes out.

What is up with places even marketing that kind of crap?

We used to frequent a little hole in the wall greasy spoon type of joint after an all night drinking and dancing night. They served a thing called the Triple Missile Burger that was as big as a dinner plate, three stories high, with everything they had in the back on it. We'd stop in around 2-3 am with whatever women we picked up that night, and share the burger and a triple order of fries between the four of us. Of course, we'd pay for it the next day, but it tasted awesome and felt great in the belly after hours of beer and booze.

I'm a pretty big dude with a pretty big appetite but I wouldn't even attempt it. Like jp said, maybe with 2-3 others.

Now some of those big "challenge" breakfasts OTOH...
