The place you ate at was Joe Tess' diner. It's a shit hole but I like it too. They haven't changed their grease in 50 years. Next time you're there, get the fried carp.

ive seen alot of them. the nastiest was a peanut butter, egg, hamburger. But most of food does look edible and good.

Except in this case. Using 3 layers of white bread just for support is disgusting. It looks like a child tried to make the highest sandwhich he could, pile a lop of shit on it just because and called it a sandwhich.

Man v Food is one of my favorite shows. After his Atlanta episode we went to Big Pie In The Sky and had a 30" pizza. It was great! Plus, one pizza will feed 8 hungry adults for $35 so it is a great place to go with a group.

Fried carp? :spock:

The best meal I've seen him down was when he was in Anchorage, AK and he finished the eating challenge at Humpy's. Alaskan crab legs, crab cakes, salmon fillet. The worst part was I watching it at like 2am and everything was closed.

My favorite episodes so far have been Anchorage and New York City.

Fried carp?!?!? WTF!

I work just down street and eat at Papa Bobs all the time. I always eat the destroyer mini,mini version of ultimate destroyer and I can rarely eat all of it.

I don't think anyone has ever accomplished this challenge.

That sandwich was just a bunch of white bread.
Let's see:
1/2 lb of pulled pork, smoked pork, ham, turkey, brisket and sausage.
So that's 3 lbs of meat, plus 3 1/2 lb burgers = 4.5 lbs of meat, plus all the bread, plus 1.5 lbs of french fries. So let's say 6.5 lbs total.

Nobody should eat 6.5 lbs of ANYTHING in one sitting. That's just stupid.

So what’s the challenge?
Eat everything that’s on the pretty plate in 45 minutes or less, and it’s free.

But if you can’t, you’ll always pay Papa Bob’s $48 for the “Ultimate Destroyer” and get to take the rest of it home. Come to think about it, you’ll pay for it either way.

If you succeed, you’ll get your picture on the Papa Bob’s Wall of Fame (or in some cases Wall of Shame,) an “I survived the Ultimate Destroyer” button, and a great big “Attaboy” or “Attagirl.”

The Rules


Payment must be made in advance. Credit cards or cash will be refunded if you win the challenge.
No bathroom breaks; just sit there and eat & eat & eat & eat.
No charge for fountain drinks.
No dipping any part of the sandwich or fries in drinks.
Must keep all food down at least 5 (five) minutes after your last bite. If you launch it, you gotta clean it!! (floors, tables, chairs, parking lot, employees, customers, etc.)
A Papa Bob’s Up-Chuck bucket will be provided at your table (just in case).
Papa Bob’s is not responsible for anything mentally or physically that arises from eating the “Ultimate Destroyer.”
To participate, you will need to print, sign and present the release form (http://www.papabobsbbq.com/ultimate-destroyer.pdf). Download Adobe Acrobat (http://get.adobe.com/reader/)

Look at Pictures of the Ultimate Destroyer (http://www.papabobsbbq.com/ultimate-destroyer/ultimate-destroyer).

Dayze
08-11-2010, 03:40 PM
I figured it would be a 'win' for Papa. Get people to come in and drop $50 to 'try' to finish it. Good way to boost sales, I would think(?)


..I was way off in my $30 guess. lol

Where have you tried already?

over the years, most of the popular places. I don't think I've had a truly nasty sammich, but most have been average / so-so etc. I guess just disappointing considering all the hype ?
OK Joes - long time ago, but remember a big onion ring on top; it was damn good. Probably the best that I can recall. would definitely go back.

Zarda - average at best. this is where i got the 'tastes like lunch meat' comment. My brother mentioned that, and it sort of stuck in my head. Fried mushrooms were the best part of the meal. Dont' care to go back if I can help it.

Gates - brisket and ham. it was 'ok'. AGain, I guess I had built up some hype in my head. Ive only eaten there twice in 10 years; the first about 8 years ago; the 2nd about 3 months ago. brisket was dry, chewy; wasn't all the big compared to the price etc. Fries were good. Don't care to go back unless I should try something else.

Bee Cee's - hole in the wall off Blue Ridge and 470. used to get it all the time whe I lived in Grandview. Good sized sammich; good prices; meat was always good. Not sure if they're even there any more.

K & M - ...but a LONG time ago...can't really remember it. remeber getting something with the word "Killer" in the name. I'd go back.
Brobecks' - right across from where we moved to. it's average at best. same deal as gates; dry brisket, chewy; reminded me of lunchmeat (turkey/ham). but decent price I suppose.

......those are about the only ones that stick out.

I'm sure there are a ton I've never been to/heard of. I like the hole in the wall joints.

I know, right? It sounds terrible but believe it or not its really pretty good stuff. They've been selling it as their signature dish since the 40's. Look it up, Joe Tess' Place.
It's called their famous fish. I can't really handle the greasy stuff anymore but
I'll have it every now and again.

The dumbest thing about that challenge is the 45 min time limit. It basically makes it impossible. There are 6.5 lbs of food in the challenge. 45/6.5 = 7 min per each lb of food. Honestly, it should have like a two hour time limit. It seems like the dude wanted to make it impossible....meh...I guess he succeeded. I don't see many people even trying it because it is obviously not possible by anyone except maybe Joey Chestnut.

I've seen a few of those shows where I thought "no way he'll finish"....then he does.
I don't see how people could eat that much w/out throwing up.

Yeah, there's been quite a few I figured he'd no way finish, but he does. And then there are some that I'm thinking to myself, "'Well, that's nothing. I can do that." But they're usually the basket of half of dozen wings loaded with the world's ungodliest and hottest spices, rubs, and sauces that humans should stay very, very far away from. Still, it's only six of them, I'll think to myself. But when you see the poor saps who attempt to devour even one of them, you now know why they'll be lucky to make it to the third one.

The one time I knew, without a doubt, he'd throw up was when he did the milkshake challenge in some St. Louis soda stand. He had to guzzle down a dozen milk shakes. The problem was, and he should have known this himself, is that he mixed 'em up with 12 different milkshakes. He probably would have finished them had he did 4 chocolates, 4 vanillas, and 4 strawberries or something like that. Instead, he guzzled some bizarre concoctions of various milk shake flavors and you could see the pain he was enduring. He looked at the camera and then ran out the back to puke like a drunken frat boy.

Anyway, I saw the show and he gave KC some serious BBQ lovin' saying it was the best around. And you can tell he was really digging Stroud's. It was a good show.

That was a really good episode until they got to Poppa Bob's. That challenge is a complete ripoff. Take off the burgers at least. A pound and a half of burgers is pointless and makes the sandwhich even drier. It's clear Poppa Bob is just a money grubbing salesman. I can tell why I've never heard about the place and I've lived here my whole life.

I thought they could have found a better food challenge in KC.

Maybe that was the problem? Maybe against the advice of his research staff, he picked it out himself because he thought he could be the first one to complete the challenge? :shrug:

I'm sure there are a few restaurants in the KC area that have a steak challenge, but it's possible he won't do steaks. I think I've only seen him do one steak challenge in all of his episodes. There could be a lot of reasons they picked out Papa Bob's that we don't know of. I bet he wanted to be the first to win the challenge, no matter how difficult and ridiculous it was.

I was watching a rerun yesterday and complaining that he went to Donkey Town. Turned it off and missed the KC episode.

Maybe that was the problem? Maybe against the advice of his research staff, he picked it out himself because he thought he could be the first one to complete the challenge? :shrug:

I'm sure there are a few restaurants in the KC area that have a steak challenge, but it's possible he won't do steaks. I think I've only seen him do one steak challenge in all of his episodes. There could be a lot of reasons they picked out Papa Bob's that we don't know of. I bet he wanted to be the first to win the challenge, no matter how difficult and ridiculous it was.

You could be right - he's done 3-4 steak challenges before that I've seen, but maybe he just REALLY wanted to try BBQ.

the only challenge presented to him that I ever thought to myself was utterly impossible was the recent steak challenge in Puerto Rico. I do not think that it was physically possible to complete it given the time limit.

If you think the BBQ in KC is mediocre I would suggest driving down to Texas and trying their BBQ. When you return you will have a whole new respect for Kansas City BBQ.

All that show accomplished was making me crave Stroud's. I haven't been there in forever.

Can't believe it's actually just flour and salt/pepper for the breading.

I'm halfway inspired to try to replicate.

Once I saw that guy put pulled pork and hamburgers on that sandwich, and he left off burnt ends. I made the decision that I'll never try that place.

LOL @ the one woman calling that the best in KC on TV.

Sure

Wonder if Papa Bob enjoyed having his dumb ass smoked burgers being described as dry and indigestible over and over on a cable show.

Travel Channel

Travel Channel has Cozy Inn ranked 69th in the nation for places to gorge yourself, or eat. Man vs Food was suppose to go there, for there imfamous Cozy burgers. They are good made only there way, don't ask for cheese however. The record I believe is 53 of them little burgers. It's a popular burger joint here in Salina Ks.

The place you ate at was Joe Tess' diner. It's a shit hole but I like it too. They haven't changed their grease in 50 years. Next time you're there, get the fried carp.

Damn straight.

I have to agree. I've been to what is considered one of Texas' finest BBQ joints, and I would consider it slightly below average compared to KC places I've been to. Hell in Texas, you can't even get pulled pork in most places.
However, there are some places in Oklahoma that do just fine by me and my taste buds.
