The challenge consists of made up of a cheese burger, applewood smoked bacon, Texas brisket, fried cheese cubes, buffalo chicken tenders, pork tenderloin, a delicious bun topped with a spicy pickle, and did I mention a POUND of waffle fries.

hen Jethro's opened, I was so excited that there was a place (near campus too!) that I could get my BBQ sauce fix. I love the food here.
