Day 15: The Barnyard Brawl
America’s fascination with eating contests and feats of colossal caloric intake is no secret to anyone. We love as much food as we can possibly consume in a sitting and then some. Biggie fries? Super sized? Make your drink a shake for an extra buck? Without question. Of Richmond’s more notorious monster-sized dishes is Carytown Burgers and Fries’ very own Barnyard Brawl. A huge patty stacked with eggs, bacon, chicken tenders, white American cheese and all the fixings on a gargantuan bun, all for a surprising $7.49, this thing called for the utmost attention and concentration as Shane and I both took on the challenge.
I am a man who will live and die by the cheeseburger. I’m pretty sure I haven’t gone two weeks without one since I was able to first start consuming them. Without a shadow of a doubt, CB&F delivers. If their cheeseburgers were a musical genre, they’d go harder than Madball while simultaneously managing to outbelt Idina and still have the left over chops for an album’s worth of unreleased Beatles tunes. I swear, this was the absolute jam. As offbeat as the breakfast additives were, I couldn’t get enough. I’m pretty sure I literally felt my blood coagulate with grease after every bite. At this point, it’s pretty safe to say that it now has the consistency of meat-induced tar. If you live in Richmond and haven’t ventured here, you’ve spent too much time in all the wrong places. This Treat Yo’self Thursday, get it together and get down to Carytown pronto.
