Looking for a hearty meal anyone would love? Why not ask the people who would know best? Here's a list of menus from people who had one final chance to pick the best dish ever.
The state of Texas, in the interest of cybermorbidity, has published a
comprehensive list of last meal requests of those sentenced to death.
Most people requested either some sort of beef product (T-bone steak,
cheeseburger, and ribs are most popular), or a breakfast thing. Only one guy
who requested food requested something you couldn't get at Denny's: Ramon

A ton of people declined their last meal - which is a nice way of saying, "Fuck

anything, but his mother insisted he have a hamburger - Mom, you're embarassing

You're allowed to deny your last meal or request an abstract concept, but that
means you get no meal.

half pints of milk. Asked that all vegetables be washed prior to serving. Also
asked that the cheese sticks be Aclean.
