Food challenges may seem like a thing of the past, but they’re alive and kicking out here in Tennessee. Curious about something quirky in your area? We’ve found some neat restaurants with real competitions that’ll get your blood pumping.
11) Kooky Canuck - Memphis
The Kookamonga Burger is four pounds of meat on two pounds of bread. With all the fixins, it counts in at 12,387 calories. Whoa. Eat it in an hour and you get the meal for free plus a pic on the wall of fame. Don't finish? No worries! You're on the loser wall.
10) The Pied Piper Eatery - Nashville
You have two hours to eat a five pound breakfast, complete with six jalapeno scrambled eggs and four biscuits WITH gravy. Plus pancakes. Are you hungry, Nashville?
9) Village Pizza - Hartsville
You get $500 bucks in cash if you and a friend can finish the two topping, eleven pound pizza in an hour. That's almost too much incentive, hey?
8) Fox's Pizza Den - Smyrna
12 punds of pizza and you plus a friend have an hour to win $200 bucks. The bummer caveat? You have to buy the pizza first - no free meals, kids.
7) Your Burger of Rutherford County - Murfreesboro
Five pounds of burger, a basket of french fries and a large blue raider shake can give you thirty minutes to remember at Your Burger.
6) Corner Pub in the Woods - Nashville
3.5 pounds of beef fill this sucker. Finish it off in an hour and you get yourself a free t-shirt.
5) Piranha's Bar & Grill - Nashville
If you're ready for the Titan Cheese Steak of the south, then Piranha's is the place for you. It's ten pounds, winners get their money back PLUS a solid $100 prize. Losers have to pay fifty smackaroos for the meal - which has been everyone but a tiny little lady on New Year's Eve.
4) Big Shake's Hot Chicken - Franklin
It's only three chicken tenders, but they're covered in "Death Row Sauce" and you got TEN minutes. Also? One cup of water is all you get, friends. And a spot on the wall of flame if you finish victorious, of course.
3) Rizzi's Café & Paridiso Pub - Arlington
You and a friend have 45 minutes to eat a pizza that is 28 inches in diameter. Whoa.
2) The Roaming Gnome - Sevierville
If you want to end up on the wall of fame, all you have to do is eat three stacked bacon cheeseburgers and a pound of fries in thirty minutes. That's 4.5 pounds of grub!
1) It's All So Yummy Café - Knoxville
Brain freeze, anyone? With sixteen scoops of ice cream and three pounds of sauces and candies, it's a difficult thing if you can't finish this massive sundae in less than sixty minutes. Win? You get a free meal and a shot on the wall of fame.
