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.
