Anything worth doing is worth OVER doing!

At least that’s what we used to think.  Until we saw Kenny Bowers’ humongous El Jefe Grande 7000 calorie burger that he is challenging people to eat within one hour (free if you do–fifty bucks if you don’t).  The scene of the crime is Kenny’s Burger Joint in Frisco.  C’mon, Kenny!  It’s a handsome creation.  You’re a great chef, so we know it tastes good, too.  The ingredients are killer.  Unfortunately, that’s my point.  Oh, it won’t get you right there on the scene, but it will eventually.  We are now a nation where every two out of three people are obese.  Diabetes is an epidemic.  We need to be talking portion control and more fruits and vegetables, not a SEVEN pound burger (a three pound patty of meat) that you wolf down with FRIES (and a Diet Coke, no doubt).  The responsibility for this has to start with each of us individually, but please, I am begging the restaurant industry to help us by taking some responsibility, too.  You know most of us can’t resist.  Please do NOT tempt us with devilish items like this bad boy El Jefe Grande.  It’s a cool PR move.  And, God knows the restaurants need the business.  Please, visit Kenny’s Burger Joint with SIX of your friends.  Order the ENORMOUS burger and SPLIT IT seven ways.  You’ll still be getting nearly a pound of indulgence each.  But please don’t try and consume this monster yourself.  Or, if you can’t get 6 friends together.  Visit Kenny’s, order a regular burger (still huge).  Eat half of it.  Take the other half home for another meal.  And, make a donation to The American Diabetes Association.   Did you ever see the wonderful film Wall-E?  Remember what people on the space station looked like?  That’s our future if we keep eating like this.  If you haven’t seen the film, get the DVD and watch it while you eat the other half of a Kenny’s burger.  Hold the fries.

Read on to see what’s on the El Jefe GrandeCaveat emptor!

An impressive 3 lb. patty of the finest Sterling Silver beef topped with

French fries



Sliced jalapenos

Bacon (a full ½ pound)

Lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions

All stacked on two ENORMOUS pieces of Texas Toast, made especially for El Jefe Grande.

The whole burger weighs in at a massive 7 pounds – and over 7,000 calories.

Guests who complete El Jefe Grande in less than 1 hour, will not only enjoy the esteem of their peers; for those gastronomic giants, the $50 burger will be free. Additionally, the diner will receive a $100 gift card good for further dining at Kenny’s Burger Joint, and will have their photo displayed on a special wall. Guests who fail to complete the challenge will have a spot on the wall of shame – but will still get a voucher for $X the next time they return to Kenny’s.

Guests interested in taking the challenge must sign a legal waiver, and must be 18 years old or older. The kitchen requests 30 minutes to prepare the challenge, so guests can call ahead to pre-order their burger if desired.

Kenny’s has become a destination for burger lovers across Texas. Guests return time and time again not only because of the spectacular food, but also because of the reasonable prices and friendly service. Kenny’s has become a favorite for those seeking burgers that are worth a special trip yet can be enjoyed every day!
