The bay area is known as a haven for foodies, with small plates and stylish presentation in vogue, but sometimes those small plates just don’t satisfy your cravings. Eye on the Bay’s Liam Mayclem scouted the Bay Area to find big servings that are guaranteed to leave you and your dining companions stuffed.

The 521 Burger is 44 ounces of beef with all the fixings on a massive roll. The burger honors the 521 home runs hit by number 44, San Francisco Giants great Willie “Stretch” McCovey. If one person eats the whole burger, they get a cap, a shirt and the meal for free. But, the massive sandwich easily feeds four hungry baseball fans.   

521 Burger – $29.95
