Friday Night we went to Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, which offers several varieties of "large" for the extreme burger enthusiast: a 2-pound Challenger, a 3-pound Baby Boy, and, a 6-pound Ye Olde 96er (so named because it contains 96 ounces of meat).  As advertised on the pub's web site, a 96er sells for $23.95 and includes the following fixings and condiments:

  • Dennys-belly-buster.jpg (59782 bytes)Two whole tomatoes
  • A half-head of lettuce
  • 12 slices of American cheese
  • A full cup of peppers
  • Two entire onions
  • A river of mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard
 Denny's also has the "Beer Barrel Belly Buster" a monstrous 15-pound burger featuring 10.5 pounds of ground beef, 25 slices of cheese, a head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, a cup-and-a-half each of mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, mustard and banana peppers. On a bun.  (Pictured to the right).  While you may not be into abusing your belly, they do have a great selection of specialty burgers, about 2 or more full  pages worth in their menu that really are great.

Denny's (not to be confused with the national chain restaurants of the same name) offers prizes for customers who can completely consume one of their big burgers within three hours.  None of our group took on the challenge but a few guys got the 1 lb burger, which was pretty big in itself at 4 times the size of a Burger King Whopper.

In January 2005 a 100-pound woman became the first person to win the Denny's Beer Barrel Pub challenge when 19-year-old Kate Stelnick of Princeton, New Jersey, downed a six-pound Denny's "96er" hamburger and five pounds of fixins' in 2 hours and 54 minutes, just shy of the three-hour time limit. For her trouble, Ms. Stelnick got a special certificate, a T-shirt, and other prizes, as well as having her tab for the $23.95 burger picked up by the house.

Denny's also has a great selection of beers, bottled and on tap with something like 120 different beers including a lot of great micro brewery beers to choose from.  Denny's Beer Barrel Pub is located at 1452 Woodland Road in Clearfield, PA.  Check them out if you're ever in the area.  We have made Denny's Beer Barrel Pub our Friday night dinner spot when we come up here for the weekend.  The food has been great, and  you won't get bored with the same old common beer select that most places have.  It's also conveniently located  near some places we occasionally need to visit like gas stations, hardware stores and auto parts stores as well as a super Walmart.

When we were on our way out the door we spotted this TJ parked in the back of the lot like any TJ should park.  Stephen perched his Toyota 4 Runner up for a shot.
The next stop for a few of us was Walmart.  On the way in we saw this fantastic rainbow and took a few pictures of it.
