CBD Provisions

How do you feel about your food staring back at you? The whole roasted pig's head at CBD is a carnivore's delight that comes with salsas and tortillas for DIY cabeza tacos. Maybe leave your vegetarian friends at home for this one.
If you're watching your cholesterol, it'd probably be wise to avoid the bacon-crusted bone marrow topped with uni at John Tesar's swanky Hotel Palomar steakhouse. Otherwise? Go right ahead and indulge in this ultra-rich ridiculousness -- better split it with a few friends if you plan to follow it with a giant dry-aged steak, though. [Photo: Joey S./Yelp]

The Blind Butcher

Copy Link
The Blind Butcher's charcuterie board is the stuff meat dreams are made of. A recent edition included bresaola, four-animal terrine, mole goat pate, candied bacon, wagyu beef jerky and three different kinds of pastrami from different animals.

El Ranchito

Copy Link
This Jefferson Boulevard restaurant's tagline is "Mariachis, fiestas y cabrito" and they do all three things very well, particular the baby goat -- which is served whole with tortillas, guacamole and all the other appropriate accoutrement to make DIY goat tacos.

Kenny's Burger Joint

Copy Link
Kenny's monstrous burger challenge bears an appropriately intimidating moniker: El Jefe Grande. It's seven pounds of beef, bacon, queso, chili, jalapenos and French fries, and gigantic custom-baked Texas toast slathered with an entire cup of mayonnaise. It's free if you can eat it all within an hour, otherwise $50 -- which actually seems like kind of a bargain for something that could easily feed a family of 8.

Meddlesome Moth

Copy Link
Three words: chicken skin chips. The Moth takes the very best part of the chicken and fries them up to crispy, crunchy, fatty perfection, tossing them with a light dressing of sweet-and-spicy sauce and some chunks of pungent blue cheese. If you haven't had these yet, you're seriously missing out. [Photo: Foodspotting]

Woodshed Smokehouse

Copy Link
Woodshed Smokehouse's 16-hour smoked beef shin is a glorious hunk of beef that's fit for a group of at least six people, and comes flanked by fresh ricotta, tortillas, kale salad and borracho beans for a full-on feast.

Stampede 66

Copy Link
The Sonofabitch stew at Stephan Pyles' Uptown ode to Texan cuisine is an offal-lover's dream: Bits of organs such as sweetbreads, tongue, liver, and heart suspended in a creamy stew punctuated by Brussels sprouts leaves and pickled vegetables. Not for the faint of heart (no pun intended), obviously. [Photo: Scott M./Yelp]

Tortas La Hechizera

Copy Link
The Cubana torta is the pinnacle of meatiness: ham, milanesa, turkey and hot dogs stacked on a cushy telera roll with lettuce, tomato, onions, beans and avocado. Hot dogs on a sandwich? Sure, why the hell not. [Photo: Jose S./Foursquare]

Wingfield's

Copy Link
Do not under any circumstances expect to go back to work after finishing a double bacon cheeseburger from Wingfield's. Proceed straight home for a three-hour nap instead -- you've been warned. [Photo: Mubarrak H./Yelp]

Off-Site Kitchen

Copy Link
For those times when a double burger just won't satiate your hunger, turn to the Ten Buck Four Banger -- four patties with a crapload of American cheese stacked high with all the usual accompaniments. Don't forget the fries. (The truly bold will add bacon.) [Photo: Kevin D./Yelp]

Cattleack Barbeque

Copy Link
The Toddfather might not look that extreme, but it's an intensely meaty and rich force to be reckoned with: Sliced brisket, pulled pork and housemade sausage stacked high on a fluffy white bun. Slap some coleslaw on this baby for a little contrast and prepare for a meat coma. [Photo]
