  1. In Philadelphia, there is a taqueria called Los Taquitos de Puebla that serves beef eye (as in eyeball), beef mouth, and mixed head meat tacos.

    1. Maybe not outrageous, but mighty good. Blooming Glen Pork has country sausage wrapped in butterflied pork tenderloins and covered in overlapping bacon slices. Just a simple roast, but amazingly delicious.

      1. Nancy B's, amazing chocolate chip cookies, located in West Homestead, PA.

            You would be the ONLY person I know that doesn't like a Nancy B's chocolate chip cookie.

        1. At nicky's Thai kitchen we had a Thai ice ice crane sundae, which was chocolate ice cream on a hot dog bun with sweet rice.

          1. In Pittsburgh, there is Primanti Bros, of course. Sandwiches stuffed with meat, cheese, fries and coleslaw. It certainly fits the "big" requirement if nothing else. For unique sweets, Deluca's diner serves pancakes with a ridiculous choice of sweet toppings that range from chocolate chips, to pumpkin, peaches, apples, and peanut butter, all finished off with whipped cream.

            Deluca's Restaurant
            2015 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15222

            1. Haute Chocolate Cafe in West Reading does a variety of delicious cupcakes (Whoopie pie, salty caramel, chocolate pretzel) that may fit the bill!

              Haute Chocolate Cafe
              711 Penn Ave, West Reading, PA 19611

              1. Los Taquitos in Philly serves really good tacos and just seeing EYEBALLS on the menu is worth the trip. Johnny's Hots serves a weird sandwich (well, I think it's a little weird) -- HOTDOG WITH A FISHCAKE ON A ROLL WITH PEPPER HASH. I don't imagine you get that particular item too many places and the service is lightning fast.

                Johnny's Hots
                1234 N Delaware Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125

                  The hot dog w/fish cake is affectionately known as a Philadelphia Surf 'n Turf.

                2. Oh Yeah Ice Cream in Pittsburgh. Ice cream and waffles with a huge list of normal and outrageous mix ins.
