Burrito aficionados, meet your match: River North hotel Moxy Chicago is serving a 17-pound burrito as part of its Size Matters package. The supersized bundle will cost you $289 and includes an oversized cocktail from the bar, admission for two to the Skydeck at Willis Tower and an Uber XL credit to use during your visit. The special package is available as an add-on when you book a room at the hotel—where you can sleep off that inevitable food coma.

The massive burrito, which is crafted at in-house taqueria Zombie Taco, is available exclusively through the package. (Don't show up there after a night out expecting to stuff your face on a whim.) Nine large tortillas are lined with three pounds of adobo chicken, three pounds of pork carnitas, two pounds of black beans, two pounds of pico de gallo, two pounds of charred corn, two pounds of carrot slaw, one pound of lettuce and two pounds of pepper jack cheese. In other words, bring a few friends to help you finish this larger-than-life dish.

Take a look at a video of this monstrous dish being assembled below.
