I am looking for a restaurant in and around LA that serves anything in HUGE
PORTION to impress my friends coming from out of country for fun. Any
thoughts folks?? Example: burgers. steaks, pasta, salads, onion rings and so
on and so forth.

Are you kidding? Other than fast food type restaurants, what restaurant
doesn't serve huge portions?

Your are right about that, but I guess it is all relative. I guess I should
have said exceptionally HUGE PORTION. Something you can laugh about and say
"Holy Sxxx!!"

Is there a Bucca di Beppi in your area? That place serves family
style Italian food. The food is excellent for a chain restaurant
and the portions are gargantuan. They have a meatball that's
litterally the size of a large grapefruit.

Seem like Bucca di Beppi is winning this contest (from other sources). I'll
look them up.

"Hamburger Hamlet" would be my first recommendation. There's also "Claim
Jumper" that does huge portions nicely.

Just take them to a buffet at noon and tell them they have until 9pm.

And we wonder why the majority of the US population can't even bend over let
alone see their shoes. They are FAT, FAT, FAT!! and it is purely disgusting.

Wasn't gluttony one of the seven deadly?

The historical large portion restaurant is Durgin Park in Boston, across
from Fauneul Hall.

The hugest portions I've ever been served are at Victoria's in downtown
Appleton, Wisconsin. Immense portions of everythign Italian.

Thanks, but too bad it is out of Southern California.

It's spelled "Buca di Beppo", they have a web site at:

http://www.bucadibeppo.com/

Look under "Neighborhood Locations" to see if there's one nearby.

That's also the corporation that own Vinny Testa's (several
in the Boston Area), relatvely large portions of ok Italian
food, and big salads.

Why has no one mentioned LA's answer to Durgin Park - The
Original Pantry at 9th and Figueroa in downtown LA. Take
your guests there for breakfast and you won't need to feed
them the rest of the day.
