The Aussie Barbecue, just off Harcourt Road, does a student discount, buy one get one free. It works out great, a burger is only €4/€5 then! I've tried the Meat Box before and I have to say, I'm not the biggest fan. Everyone raves about it, and I suppose, it is cool that you can order something completely carb-free but I didn't like it. It consists of a breast of chicken (I don't like barbecued chicken, I think it always just tastes of charcoal), one 1/2 pound hamburger patty (nothing wrong with this, just hamburgers aren't so great without a bun and/or sugary sauces!) and pulled pork (the pulled pork is amazing).
My advice, if you're a fan of pulled pork, is to order the Hog Boss. It's just a load of pulled pork in a hot dog bun but, again, the pulled pork is amazing.
On the walls in the diner there's a poster for the 'Great White Challenge'- See how many Great White burgers you can eat in 60 minutes! So far there is only one challenger on the board and he ate three. I decided to order the great white to see what it was all about.

It looks like any normal burger but each of those two beef patties are apparently 1/2 a pound each. So there's one pound of beef plus, you can't see them but, there's 4 slices of bacon. My immediate thought was that I could definitely eat more than three of these...
I went to take my first bite but quickly realised I couldn't open my mouth wide enough to fit the burger in! No problem, I'll just eat it with a knife and for, sorted. As you can see I quickly devoured half of it!
And yes, I finished the whole thing- I never leave food on my plate!
Ok, afterwards I wasn't so sure that I could eat three. I'm not sure though. If I had an hour I think I might have been able to... However, I'm not sure if I want my name to be on a restaurant wall for being a glutton!
