  • Feeling meat macho? Take it all out on a massive burger.

If you're going to eat a burger, eat a burger. Gorge on a macho from local institution Chris Madrid's. It's not often you can say a burger has gobs of cheese, but this half-pound hamburger is absolutely dripping with cheddar. Opened in 1977, the gas station-turned burger joint offers six burger varieties, but when you indulge, you might as well opt for their specialty: the tostada bean burger. This oversized monster includes refried beans, chips, onions and the aforementioned gobs of cheese piled high on top of a beef patty. Pair it with Chris Madrid's hand-cut fries and a bottled longneck from their cantina. And when you're done, be sure to get an "I Ate a Macho at Chris Madrid's" bumper sticker to let the world know of your gluttonous achievement. 1900 Blanco Rd., (210) 735-3552, chrismadrids.com
