Retaurants in Socal w/eating records...

THEfamousCFC Nov 24, 2008 03:29 PM

Hi i'm new to the board, but I was wondering if anybody knows of any local restaurants in Southern California that has wall posts of people eating a record amount of food in the joint? Like maybe a local hot dog stand where someone ate 20 hot dogs in one sitting, or a seafood joint where someone at 20 lbs of crab legs, something along that line. I'm just doing some research on these places and would love to visit them and see what we can do about these records. Thanks for any help all.

      Doesn't one of the J-town ramen places keep a "wall of fame" as to those who finish off their "ultra-spicy" ramen?

          I don't think Orochon does that anymore.

        I haven't been in years, but Tokyo Delves in N. Hollywood had a wall of pics of people who ate the 100% spicy roll.

          They should put up photos of anyone who eat "anything" at Tokyo Delves.

          The Fatburger on Santa Monica Blvd. and Vista in West Hollywood has a chart on the most Kingburgers eaten. 14 I think. Geez, I get sick thinking about eating more than 1 Kingburger.

            IN n Out - maybe not a wall of fame or anything, but they have the 5 x 5 challenge.
            eat a 5x5 , 4x4, 3x3, 2x2, and a normal burger and they'll pay for it.
