If you're up for a burger challenge you should look into the jesse mach challenge @ Cafe Central.

Eat Here Now has a new item: the "Button Popper Challenge."

It begins with a triple-patty burger with all the trimmings and a pound of fries. Eat all this in record time -- or try a larger burger and more fries. If you win, the restaurant pays for your meal and posts your picture on its Wall of Fame. Don't finish and you end up on the Wall of Shame. "The entire restaurant gets involved," says owner Andy Henson.

The current record time for the triple-patty burger and pound of fries (which costs $9.99) is 4 minutes 47 seconds. The Ultimate Button Popper contest, a 2-pound burger and 2 pounds of fries, holds a record time of 30 minutes. Eat Here Now is open Monday-Saturday for lunch and dinner; 2016 Ayrsley Town Blvd.; 704-499-9999.

Bikinis in University has a big burger 'challenge'. I think if you eat the whole thing, you get a t-shirt. Its been about 2 years since i've been so dont quote me on it. The burger isnt the biggest ive ever seen, its about the size of a dinner plate.

The Grizzly sounds great! But I think the tomato would be my stumbling block. Still I may email them...

Do any of them pick up medical bills associated with all that crap in your system? Or is there a waiver that you sign. The Grizzly made me feel sick and I was just reading it. UGH
