America's unbeaten food challenges

For many people, the words "eating challenge" evoke the iconic scene in the movie The Great Outdoors, when John Candy tackles "The Old 96er" to the chagrin of his digestive tract. More recently, the Travel Channel's Man v. Food show has popularized eating challenges, which have increasingly become a strategy for restaurants across the country to make a name for themselves, draw in new customers, and simply have fun.

For those testing their fortitude through eating challenges, clearing a plate of outrageously large or spicy meals will often win them a T-shirt, their photo on the wall, and dinner on the house. There are some challenges, however, that push the limits of consumption and no individual has yet to cross the proverbial finish line.

So, which eating challenges remain undefeated? See the full slideshow. — Paul Toscano, CNBC.com

The 10 Craziest Burger Challenges in America

The beauty of burgers is that you don't need to have a hankering for one to enjoy the greasy griddled patty topped with crisp lettuce, ripe tomato, and a hundred other fixings. Hell, they're so good that I'm pretty much always in the mood for one, which is why even the slightest pop-culture burger reference can spark a craving.

While I think they're best paired with crispy, salty fries and a cold beer, a number of restaurants around the country would argue that there's nothing like a massive, multiple-pound patty eaten at lightning speeds.

If you think you're a true burger fanatic, think again if you haven't tried&mdashor even heard of&mdashthese crazy burger eating challenges across the country. So put your stretchy pants on and check 'em out:

The Sarge Burger at Pig 'n-Chik

Sherwood, Arizona

Finish this 4-pounder sitting on a 1-pound bun and loaded with all the fixings, in 30 minutes and it's free otherwise you'll have to fork over $24.95 for the gut-busting burger.

The Quadruple Bypass Burger at Heart Attack Grill

The restaurant could quite possibly live up to its name with this beast of a burger, which includes four patties, chili, and 20 slices of bacon ($17.58). If you're feeling really competitive, you can ask for the Octuple Bypass ($28.68), but we don't recommend it. Either way, watch out: If you don't finish your "nurse" waitress will spank you with a paddle.

The Beast at Bokampers Sports Bar and Grill

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

This number is probably bigger than your head. It includes a 4-pound burger layered with eight slices of bacon, four slices of American cheese, and four fried eggs&mdashplus a pile of fries. You get an hour with this baby before you've gotta pay for it ($39.99).

The Eagle's Challenge at Eagle's Deli

Brighton, Massachusetts

Filed under the "gigantic burger"section, along with four other 2-plus&ndashpound patties, this monster weighs six pounds and is loaded with 24 pieces of bacon, two dozen slices of american cheese, five pounds of fries. Oh, and a single (albeit extra large) deli pickle to top it all off. ($65.99)

The Speck Burger Challenge at Specks Bar and Grill

Topeka, Kansas

At this family-owned restaurant, if you can down the 3-pound round and the mound of fries that towers over it in 45 minutes, it's on the house.

Mount Olympus at Clinton Station Diner

Clinton, New Jersey

You get three hours, plus the held of four friends, to conquer this 50-pound burger. If you're not up for such an epic undertaking, the restaurant also offers the Zeus, a 7-pound patty that you can chip away at over three hours&mdashor in an hour and a half with a friend.

The Absolutely Ridiculous Burger at Mallie's Sports Bar & Grill

Southgate, Michigan

With 24 hours' notice and $400, you can sit down to the world-record&ndashbreaking burger that weighs in at 134 pounds and is layered with cheese and bacon before getting sandwiched between a 50-pound bun.

The Five Five Challenge at Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes, and Fries

Multiple locations nationwide

Take down this 55-ounce burger&mdashdecked out with at least four toppings of your choice&mdashfries, and a 24-ounce drink in 30 minutes of less and it's free.

Man vs. Food Challenge at Chompie's

Phoenix, Arizona

Even adventurous eater Adam Richman (Food Network's Man vs. Food) was taken down by this challenge, which includes 12 Jewish sliders topped with brisket, potato pancakes, Jack cheese, and onion strings that together weigh in at five pounds. If you can finish all of 'em in half an hour, they're gratis. Plus you'll get a T-shirt and bragging rights that you beat Adam Richman at scarfing down patties.

The Beer Barrel Burgernator at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub

Clearfield, Pennsylvania

There are six challenges at this pub, but the most outlandish is the Beer Barrel Burgernator ($129.99), which requires three days' notice. It's 25 pounds of meat topped with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, cheese, and pickle spears.

The 10 Craziest Burger Challenges in America

The beauty of burgers is that you don't need to have a hankering for one to enjoy the greasy griddled patty topped with crisp lettuce, ripe tomato, and a hundred other fixings. Hell, they're so good that I'm pretty much always in the mood for one, which is why even the slightest pop-culture burger reference can spark a craving.

While I think they're best paired with crispy, salty fries and a cold beer, a number of restaurants around the country would argue that there's nothing like a massive, multiple-pound patty eaten at lightning speeds.

If you think you're a true burger fanatic, think again if you haven't tried&mdashor even heard of&mdashthese crazy burger eating challenges across the country. So put your stretchy pants on and check 'em out:

The Sarge Burger at Pig 'n-Chik

Sherwood, Arizona

Finish this 4-pounder sitting on a 1-pound bun and loaded with all the fixings, in 30 minutes and it's free otherwise you'll have to fork over $24.95 for the gut-busting burger.

The Quadruple Bypass Burger at Heart Attack Grill

The restaurant could quite possibly live up to its name with this beast of a burger, which includes four patties, chili, and 20 slices of bacon ($17.58). If you're feeling really competitive, you can ask for the Octuple Bypass ($28.68), but we don't recommend it. Either way, watch out: If you don't finish your "nurse" waitress will spank you with a paddle.

The Beast at Bokampers Sports Bar and Grill

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

This number is probably bigger than your head. It includes a 4-pound burger layered with eight slices of bacon, four slices of American cheese, and four fried eggs&mdashplus a pile of fries. You get an hour with this baby before you've gotta pay for it ($39.99).

The Eagle's Challenge at Eagle's Deli

Brighton, Massachusetts

Filed under the "gigantic burger"section, along with four other 2-plus&ndashpound patties, this monster weighs six pounds and is loaded with 24 pieces of bacon, two dozen slices of american cheese, five pounds of fries. Oh, and a single (albeit extra large) deli pickle to top it all off. ($65.99)
