  1. I went with my friends a few years ago, so I'm not sure if they still do it, but Frontera Mex-Mex Grill had an "el gigante" (a huge $15.00 burrito) eating challenge. The one I went to was in Stockbridge, GA. You get a t-shirt if you finish it. I don't think there was a time limit. Anyways, check it out! Hopefully they're still doing it!

    1. The Triple Bypass at the Vortex in Little 5 is crazy! Huge burger, if you're brave enough :)

      1. The Carnivore Pizza Challenge in Kennesaw is a pretty big one. It's at Big Pie in the Sky. Here's some info:

        Two People, 11 lbs Carnivore Pizza, One hour to eat it all.

        $50 to try…$250 cash if you win.

        The Rules of the Challenge.

        You must eat the entire pizza in under one hour.
        You cannot throw up, and if you do, you are responsible for the cleanup! If you are going to throw up, do it outside, in the trash can, or make it to the bathroom.
        You cannot leave the table once you start the time, you can stand up walk around and let your food settle, but you cannot leave the general vicinity.
        If we catch you violating the rules you will be immediately disqualified. The rules are very firm and we do enforce them!

        Big Pie In the Sky Pizzeria
        2090 Baker Rd NW Ste 103, Kennesaw, GA 30144

          1. The "Big Dawg Challenge" at Cj's Hotdogs on Jonesboro Rd in Mcdonough. You have to eat 3 1/2 lb hotdogs w/ 2 toppings in less than 6 min 7 seconds. So many people have tried it but very few have succeeded. You can see it on Youtube also - 4 guys tried it at one time and they all lost. If you win you get a $50 gift certificate and a T-Shirt. Time to man up!!!
