The Famous Suicide Stack at Heart & Soul Cafe in Cave Creek, AZ

Would You Attempt Eating a "Suicide Stack"?

The Suicide StackWhile in Arizona for the weekend, our pal Justin Esch (the brainchild behind BaconSalt and Baconnaise) stopped into Cave Creek's Heart & Soul Café and did the unthinkable. He ordered The Famous Suicide Stack.

What's that, you ask? It's a $49, 25-pound behemoth with 13 layers of biscuit, chicken fried steak, green pork chili, scrambled eggs with cheese, chicken fried ham steak, gravy with pinto beans, hash browns, jalapeño cheese sauce, more scrambled eggs with cheese, buttermilk fried chicken, country pork gravy, another layer of biscuits, and deep-fried stuffed jalapeño peppers as a topping. "My son, who weighs 20 pounds, was with us, and the stack weighed more than him," Justin declared.

Looks like something straight out of This Is Why You're Fat. Would you eat it, or are you over this kind of stuff?

I saw a program about this and the owner stated she never intended for this to be a food challenge. It was meant to be shared between people. Being on my grandparents farm in my younger days we used to stack stuff to eat and run. nothing like everything covered in gravy. This sounds awesome but would want to share with others cause who the heck wants to eat 25 lbs of food in one sitting or day for that matter.

Gag. I'm not a fan of these oversized, greasy, piled, mishmashed food challenges. To me it's a waste of food and a heart attack waiting to happen. Pass.

Not even one bite, it sounds disgusting. I can put back food like no one's business, and yet the idea of having to makes me shudder.

I'm not a fan of mixing my foods, I don't like my food to touch. So while I'd eat any of those components on their own, I'd never eat them in one big pile. And like fuzzles said..not even with bacon!

I'd eat each of the components of that ridiculous dish on their own, but why combine them all into one soggy, greasy mess?

I agree with Katie... These kinds of dishes never seemed appealing to me, and this just looks gross. BLECH.

I'm so over this trend. To me it was always just really gross.

That sounds delicious. If I wasn't gluten intolerant, I would face plant in that.
