Two New Food Challenges, One Tacos, One Barbecue

HARD ROCK HOTEL — In honor of National Margarita Day on Feb. 22 and National Tortilla Chip Day on Feb. 24, Pink Taco has the Ultimate Taco challenge, $5 Sauza Blue margaritas for ladies and entertainment Friday through Sunday. For the Ultimate Taco challenge, diners need to finish as three and a half pound taco that contains one pound of meat and a 25-inch crispy taco shell filled with refried beans, rice, shredded chicken, steak, carnitas, lettuce, Mexican cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream and guacamole. The Ultimate Taco is served with a complimentary Sauza Blue margarita. Patrons who finish the entire entrée in 30 minutes or less earn bragging rights and will get the dish for free. All others pay $24. DJ Dash provides the music starting at 7 p.m. on Friday and 8 p.m. on Saturday. [EaterWire]

EXCALIBUR — Dick's Last Resort has new menu items such as The Works! Burger for $18 and Dick's Picks barbecue meat plates with the choice of one meat for $15 or two for $19. Options include beef brisket, pulled pork, pulled smoked chicken, a half rack of St. Louis ribs or three grilled hot links. The obnoxious restaurant also has a two for $20.13 lunch special with brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicky or a Buffalo sammich. Daring food eaters are welcome to try the Drunken Bill challenge, which serves up one pound of sloppy barbecued pulled pork, one pound of slow-smoked brisket and three hot links all sandwiched between a crispy garlic hoagie roll and served with sides of onion rings and fries all for $36. Challengers who finish the three-meat sandwich and two sides in less than 10 minutes will have their picture displayed on Dick's Last Resort's Wall of Fame. For the losers unable to devour this meaty sandwich, their picture will be taken and put up on the Wall of Shame for all to see. [EaterWire]
