Some restaurants around the country pride themselves on a signature dish. And some of these places love their signature dish so much they decide to prepare it in mass amounts… and then challenge guests to eat as much of it as they possibly can. People from all over the world visit certain establishments to try these crazy food challenges. If they are victorious, they win not only pride, but usually a spot on a wall of fame.
All of these restaurant challenges have one thing in common — participants have to eat a ridiculous amount of food, and sometimes within a restricted amount of time. But not all of these challenges are created equally. For example, The Inferno Soup at Nitally’s ThaiMex Cuisine challenges participants to slurp down an insanely large 48-ounce bowl of spicy soup (that includes 12 different hot peppers from around the world) in 30 minutes. Additionally, Randy's Wooster Street Pizza in Connecticut challenges participants to eat a stuffed pizza so large they claim they can’t even list the amount of toppings on the menu.
From donuts to pho, we’ve compiled a list of the most unusual restaurant challenges and ranked them based on the amount of food, as well as any other special regulations like time limits and the spice factor. From bacon-wrapped meat to 2-foot-long burritos, check out our slideshow to see some of the country’s craziest restaurant challenges!
