614feast names his favorite spots for epic, over-the-top, XXL dishes

Anthony O'Connell

Ever heard of stunt food? It’s all about epic, over-the-top dishes that aren’t just a hit on social media but are also genuinely delicious. Think of a towering smash burger, a deep-fried mac and cheese grilled cheese sandwich, or a colossal steak. These are the kinds of dishes that not only tantalize your taste buds but also command attention. For a feast that’s as impressive on your feed as it is on your fork, check out these top 5 stunt foods in Columbus. 

Melt Bar and Grilled (4206 Worth Ave, Columbus, OH)
The Mighty Macaroni. Creamy, homemade mac and cheese, battered and deep-fried to golden perfection. It’s then layered with a rich cheddar cheese sauce and your choice of melted cheese – I always go for American cheese on this indulgent feast.

Agave & Rye (479 N High St, Columbus, OH)
Their “Epic Tacos” take the concept of stunt food to another level. The Crown Jewel starts with butter and garlic lobster, already a treat by itself. But then, it’s taken up a notch with luxurious additions: rich mac and cheese, truffle oil and shavings, shiitake mushrooms, and shaved green onions. This combination makes each bite an extravagant fusion of flavors and textures.

Pelino’s Pasta (245 King Ave, Columbus, OH)
Cacio e Pepe and a show. This classic dish of scratch made pasta is expertly tossed in a massive 60 lb cheese wheel right at your table. And I don’t want to sound cheesy but it’s a sight to be seen.

Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse (569 N High St, Columbus, OH)
The Scarlet & Gray Steak: a massive FORTY OZ long bone tomahawk ribeye. This attention-grabbing cut is not just massive in size but also boasts the quality of being 100% Black Angus from Creekstone Farms, making it a truly impressive dish.

MNCHS Kitchen (56 W Main St, Newark, OH)
Smash Burger offers a customizable feast. You can keep it simple with a single patty, or go all out and stack as many patties as you dare. The record? A staggering 12 patties, topped with 14 strips of bacon – now that’s a stunt!
