5 Challenging Ways to Get a Free Meal in Vegas
Dropping a few G’s at the poker tables is not the only way to get dinner comped in Vegas. Try your hand at one of these super-food challenges instead and not only is your meal comped, you won’t need to eat for the rest of the week:
Can You Inhale an 8lb Burger in 45 Minutes?
At the Pub at Monte Carlo you get 45 minutes to wrap your paws around the buns of this real whopper of a burger and inhale it for a free meal. That’s 4 pounds of ground beef shaped into a colossal patty, 10 slices of cheese, along with all that healthy stuff like tomato, lettuce, jalapenos and caramelized onions. The Pub chefs also throw in a helping of their own version of secret sauce and of course a giant pickle for good measure, but you’ll still get a bill and no victory T-shirt unless you can also wash the whole thing down with a 32oz cold one.
Do You Think You Can Down 10 Pancakes in 15 Minutes?
If your stomach seems bigger in the A.M. you may have luck with the Stackzilla Pancake Challenge at Du-Par’s Restaurant inside the Golden Gate. This downtown restaurant has been serving award winning food in Vegas since 1955, and challenges diners to a free breakfast if they can get 10 pancakes down in 15 minutes. This massive food challenge, inspired by the Golden Gate’s new neighbor Slotzilla, at least tries at civility by requiring you to finish with a fork if you want your $16.99 stack for free.
Should You Spice Up Your Life With 20 Wings in 20 Minutes?
If you’ve ever seen a chicken wing (who hasn’t) then 20 of those little suckers in 20 minutes sounds like a pre-game snack. Until they get soaked in a sauce aptly named Diablo’s Death Sauce. Diablo’s Cantina at the Monte Carlo makes sure that their Death Sauce lives up to its name, blending Habanero chili puree with ghost chili extract, creating a sauce that should set your tongue on fire just for looking at it. But the free wings, T-shirt and picture on the wall make the burn worth it if you can take it.
Do You Want to Double Team a 10 Pound Pizza?
If you think you’ll have better luck eating big with a friend, head over to Moondoggie’s Bar and the Naked City Pizza Shop. They’ll give you and your chow-hound buddy 30 minutes to tackle a 2 foot long pizza, with 4 toppings of your choice. Complete this mouthwatering mission and the $34 pie is free, plus you get a couple of cool T-shirts and your place on the wall of fame.
Are You In for the “Ultimate Steak Challenge”?
Feel like a $250 Vegas dinner, but don’t want to pay for it. Instead of trying to dine and dip, try your teeth at Brand Steakhouse’s Ultimate Steak Challenge. Another carnivorous delight inside the Monte Carlo, the challenge is to take on a 7.5 lb bacon wrapped porterhouse steak and your choice of side dish. This is a steak that is meant to serve six so don’t be dismayed if you end up having to ask for a doggie bag and pay your tab.
Instead of trying your luck at getting a free meal in Vegas, stretch your stomach and try your taste buds with a scrumptious food challenge. Accomplish one of these and not only do you eat a full meal for free, you get the bragging rights to having your name forever emblazoned on wall of fame.
