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.

5300 E Mockingbird Ln
Dallas, TX 75206
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]

3. The Blind Butcher

Copy Link
1919 Greenville Ave.
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 887-0000

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.

4. El Ranchito

Copy Link
610 W Jefferson Blvd
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 946-4238
Visit Website
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.

5. Kenny's Burger Joint

1377 Legacy Dr
Frisco, TX 75034
(214) 618-8001
Visit Website
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.

6. Meddlesome Moth

Copy Link
1621 Oak Lawn Ave.
Dallas, TX 75207
(214) 628-7900
Visit Website
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]

7. Woodshed Smokehouse

Copy Link
3201 Riverfront Dr
Fort Worth, TX 76107
(817) 740-8835
Visit Website
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.

8. Stampede 66

1717 McKinney Ave, Ste 100
Dallas, TX 75202
(214) 550-6966
Visit Website
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]

9. Tortas La Hechizera

5611 Maple Ave
Dallas, TX
(214) 688-0236
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]

10. Wingfield's

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]

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]

12. Cattleack Barbeque

13628 Gamma Rd
Dallas, TX 75244
(972) 386-9400

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]
