The 7lb "Mountain Burger", Mrs Ritchie's, Nanaimo, BC
Mrs Ritchie's in Nanaimo, BC has a worthy challenge. They've got a 7lb "Mountain Burger", big enough for even the largest BC appetite! The Challenge: eat the 7lb "Mountain Burger" and fries in less than an hour, and you'll get the meal free! Here's a few pics of this mammoth mountain of burgery goodness!
After three hours peering into tide pools and slipping on slimy rocks, we drove into town to undertake a challenge. Mrs Ritchie's restaurant in Nanaimo challenges anyone to eat their rather generous sized mountain burger. If you can finish the whole burger and the fries that come with it, in less than an hour....the feast is free. Have a look at the photograph of the giant burger, and guess for yourself whether I completed the challenge or not. I'll give you a hint- the damn thing weighs seven pounds!
100 White Castle Burger Challenge
6 friends got together and set themselves a challenge. Between them, they had to down 100 White Castle "Sliders".
They reached the high 90's pretty quickly, but those last few were a lot harder than they thought they would be!
6 boys, 100 White Castle Burgers, a task only the asian hot dog eater guy could complete... but we dident have no super hot dog eating asian... we had....
The Febo Wall of Food
If you've been to Amsterdam, chances are you've seen the great Febo Wall of Food. Perfect for those "special" late night snacks, this place offers deep fried goodies stored in tiny compartments, opened by those who drop a few Euro's into the adjacent coin slots. I'd imagine there'd be plenty of late night Febo eating competitions after frequenting the local Cafe's ;) Although I could find plenty of pics of the actual Febo itself, I didn't have much luck finding pics of people eating it.... hmm....
The Doodleburger Challenge, New Haven, CT
As with most competitive eating events, there are records and record holders. This record is topped by two of the finest in the Competitive Eating Arena, Eric "Badlands" Booker, and Tim "Eater-X" Janus. Badlands beat out Ed "Cookie" Jarvis in '04, downing 32 Doodleburgers. He was then trumped in '05 by Eater-X, who ate 33. Not satisfied with the win, Tim returned in '06 to outperform his previous record, and downed 34 burgers in one sitting. He is the current record holder, and Doodleburger champion. You can see the Hall of Fame here
. So the fine no-time-limit Yale tradition continues... will Tim hold the title for long?
Tim Janus walked into the Yankee doodle burger coffee shop with the intent of filling a commitment he made to himself as far back as June 2004. Tim had been thinking about the doodleburger record since that time because he was so frustrated he couldnt qualify for Nathans back then. This summer he had tried to break the record for MTV so they could include it in the episode of True Life. Tim called Rick the owner of Yankee Doodle shop to inform him that MTV crew was coming down but he cautioned them that the AC was busted and that the restaurant was 95 degrees inside. Tim backed out because he thought he would feel uncomfortable in the heat and might blow it.
The 300 White Castle Burger Eating Challenge!
Unfortunately, I haven't had the pleasure of trying a White Castle "slider" myself, but this family wanted to try it so bad that they created an Ebay Auction to finance the trip. But rather than just take the money, they'd set themselves a challenge. The three members of the family had to eat 100 sliders each, same day, without leaving the restaurant. Globat.com
decided to finance the trip, so long as they promoted their site along the way. They did, and after sitting in the same restaurant for 27 hours, they had a result...
Are you cow enough? Quad-stack Big Mac in China?
I haven't seen a Quad-Stack Big Mac before, but this looks legit. And apparently the ad translates to "Are you cow enough?". Someone else suggests it translates to “The all-new Supreme Master?”. Hahahah... If BK does the Quad Stacker, why haven't I seen one of these coming out of English-speaking McDonalds before?
AmandaHughlett and the Fuddruckers 1lb Burger
Back in May, 2006, Fuddruckers held the title for The World's Largest Burger
. Alas, they didn't hold the title for long, but at least they're carrying on the tradition by offering a 1lb burger to their customers. This 1lb Burger at Fuddruckers was as big as Nate's head!
White Castle Burger Stack
A rather neat looking White Castle Burger Stack. Oooh, so shiny!
The Heart Attack Grill, Tempe, AZ
With menu items like "The Quadruple Bypass Burger", and "Flatliner Fries", this place doesn't sound too good if you're on a health kick. But hey, who cares! These massive burgers are the creation of "The Heart Attack Grill
", a restaurant in Tempe, Arizona. "The Quadruple Bypass Burger
" consists of four slabs of beef weighing a total of 2lbs, three cheese layers, four bacon rashers, lettuce and tomato. The record of eating one of these mammoth beasts was broken the other day by Jed Donahue, with a time of 3 Minutes and 55 seconds! The "contraversy" stirred up in part by the Nurses Union is a funny read too. Apparently they believe there might be confusion as to whether these nurses are real or not... hahah... lighten up I say! (you can read about that, here
Courtney Chapman, a waitress dressed as a nurse at the Heart Attack Grill, holds up a triple bypass burger Friday, Dec. 1, 2006 in Tempe, Ariz. The barely year-old Tempe, Ariz., restaurant with its slogan "taste...worth dying for!" makes the "quadruple bypass burger," estimated to be 8,000 calories, and it is served by waitresses in "nurse" outfits.
Megamunch's Taco Challenge
Dave Schoffner from Megamunch
decided it was time to have an eating challenge with a few of his friends. The challenge? Five guys. 19 tacos each. 30 minutes. Cash Prize. The results weren't quite up to what they expected...
In the end, one taco was all that separated first from third. I’ll dispense with the drama and get right down to the totals. Each of us started with 19 tacos (more on why it wasn’t 20 later) and the contest went the full 30 minutes. We’d all hoped to break the 15 taco mark, but fell just short.
