Have you ever watched Man Vs. Food and thought to yourself “I could do that”? Well it’s time to put the food where your mouth is because here are 7 Food Challenges Around New England You Can Take On right now. Joey Chestnut ain’t got nothing on you…

  • Eagle’s Challenge, Eagles Deli and Restaurant

    Eagle’s Deli is located at 1918 Beacon St. in Brighton and they’ve been boasting the Eagle’s Challenge for years. You must devour 6 pounds of burgers, 24 pieces of bacon, 24 pieces of American cheese & 5 pounds of french fries in one hour. Succeed and you get a $100 gift card, a t-shirt, and your name on the wall. Lose and it’ll cost you $69.99 and the loosening of a notch on your belt.

  • Moose Burger Challenge, Wolfe's Tavern

    Wolfe’s Tavern is located at 90 North Main St in Wolfeboro, NH. Here you can attempt to crush the “Moose Burger Challenge.” You get a 2-pound burger topped with a half pound of bacon, half pound of cheese, and the fixin’s, served on a house-baked loaf of bread with a full pound of fries on the side. Complete it and get a. t-shirt, a $15 gift card, and your. name on the wall.

    Here’s another of their creations, the Poutine Burger:

Fail and it’ll cost you $18.95 (at last check).

    They have lots of other delicious options here including their blueberry babka:

  • Lil Al's Challenge, La Famiglia Giorgio’s

    Head to the North End for this pile of food on a plate.

  • Panchillada Breakfast Challenge, Cafe Manzi's

    Cafe Manzi’s is in Worcester and they throw down the Panchillada Breakfast Challenge – an eight-egg meaty omelet wrapped in a large pancake. Oh yeah… and one pound of home fries on the side. You have 30 minutes….
