Clocking in at a whopping 10 inches in diameter and 12 inches tall, the Macho Nacho is indeed a macho burger. Not only is it built with classic nacho fixings like guacamole and pico de gallo, but there's also plenty of burgeresque features too, including a trio of 12-ounce beef patties and plenty of American cheese. "The pico's bite balances perfectly with the rich guac and cheese," Josh noted after he went face-first into the burger.
A meat lover's dream, The Big Mac Daddy boasts no fewer than 3 pounds each of brisket and pulled pork — and two succulent sausages. There's also a generous blanket of ooey-gooey macaroni and cheese atop the 'cue, and, of course, the mac is studded with brisket and sausage too. According to Josh, "The mac and cheese adds a creaminess that plays off of all three meats."
Big Lou's Pizza
Though The Big Lou's 62 is adorned with some traditional pizza toppings, like olives, pepperoni and sausage, it surely isn't your everyday pie — and not just because it costs $164. This 62-inch monstrosity tips the scales at 80 pounds and must be prepared on specially made equipment that will accommodate its size, according to Big Lou himself. "This is like a football field of pizza," Josh observed as he joined Big Lou and his team in assembling The Big Lou's 62.
