Fat Sandwich Company
This is a grease lover's dream come true..The Fat Sandwich Company in Champaign Illinois. They make sandwiches with virtually every greasy or fried bar food you can imagine. Of course they are located in a large college town, because this is, plain and simple, food for drunks.
The menu is a bit overwhelming because each uniquely named sandwich contains a variety of junk. The combinations are crazy and limitless. You can smoke a Fat Joint that has chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, ham, egg, mayo, and ketchup. Or pleasure yourself with a Fat Sorostitute- a Sub with buffalo chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, jalapeno poppers, and ranch dressing. You can, of course, build your own disgustingly awesome sandwich as well with ingredients such as mini corndogs, cheesesteak, mac n cheese bites, cheez whiz, hashbrowns, and pizza bites. check their website for more crazy combos. Did I mention every sandwich is also topped with a hearty serving of fries? Yep, right on top of the whole sandwich.
Here's one fresh from the deep fryer/oven
Bigger than a plate.
Richard chose to consume the Fat Magnum- double cheeseburger, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, bacon, egg, mayo, ketchup, and fries...
Looks appetizing, right?
Well the tastes all kind of mesh together and you end up with an odd but sort of satisfying combination. For most of the people stuffing one in their face, they just need something to soak up the alcohol and probably aren't too picky about taste.
Richie thought it might be better if all the foods weren't prepackaged frozen foods. Nonetheless, he enjoyed the challenge. (He ate about half of it)
So he left with a full belly, as most will. Next time, I think I will attempt to eat a burger or chicken breast on a krispy kreme. I just wasn't quite up for it at the time. All-in-all it's a fun place to visit and try. Not the best quality of sandwich and foods, but you will leave full.
I should mention that they have an absolutely ridiculous food challenge in which a person must consume the Big Fat Ugly within 15 minutes. What is the Big Fat Ugly, you ask?
Not this guy
It's a humongous sandwich on two buns with basically everything on the menu.
four cheeseburgers, a double cheesesteak, chicken cheesesteak, gyro meat, grilled chicken, bacon, sausage, pork roll, mozzarella sticks, chicken finger, chicken nuggets, macaroni-and-cheese bites, fried mushrooms, jalapeno poppers, pizza bites, onion rings, hash browns, American cheese, ketchup and mayonnaise.
I found this picture of it
and Here's video of some fool trying to eat it
