Radio guys vs. Fat Tony’s giant burger

The Bobby Bones crew. Carlos is on the far left, and Lunchbox is on the far right.

Two of the personalities from the nationally syndicated Bobby Bones Show will spend Saturday in Wichita, and one of their planned activities is giant burger consumption.

I’ve told you about the food challenges offered at Fat Tony’s, the sports bar at 417 E. Douglas . Recently, I watched as blog reader Frank White tried, unsuccessfully, to prevail in the restaurant’s nuclear wing challenge.

On Saturday, Carlos and Lunchbox, two of Bobby Bones’ radio sidekicks, will visit Fat Tony’s to check out the restaurant’s burger challenge, which requires an individual to consume a 10¬†lb. burger with all the fixings plus a pound of fries in 45 minutes. Those who do get the $34.99 meal for free. No one has ever successfully completed this challenge.

The radio guys, smartly, don’t think they can, either. So they’re going to split the burger and see which one of them can finish it first. They’re inviting fans to come to the restaurant and watch — or take the challenge themselves. They’ll be at Fat Tony’s from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday. (Those who want to participate in the challenge need to sign up today by calling¬†316-303-9316.)

After that, they’re going to the Wichita Wingnuts game and then will be meeting fans from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Doc Howard’s Lounge, the nightclub owned by the Fat Tony’s folks at 252 N. Mosley.

The Bobby Bones show is broadcast out of Austin and airs on radio stations across the country. In Wichita, it airs at weekdays from 6 to 10 a.m. on Channel 96.3.
