Come and try us IF YOU DARE!!
The challenge is available in the evenings only, so basically, just Thursday and Friday nights (at the time of writing). Looking at it, I think its impossible. I totted it up and its 8.5lbs plus the weight of the bun.
Putting that in to context, most food challenges are around the 3 – 3.5lb mark. A 72oz steak is 4.5lbs and steak is a lot denser than the stuff in this challenge. A 5lb food challenge would beat me. When you are looking at an 8.5lb challenge, you are really only looking at the pro competitive eaters that can do it and even then a lot of them would fail.
That challenge would feed 4 people quite easily. The burger patties themselves weight 3lbs in total so each person would get 3/4lbs of burger and 1/2lb of chips, plus a quarter of all the extras. It’d be a big meal for 4 regular people.
If you think you can do it here are the details but you’d be doing well to even get half way. If they’ll let you, go down with a few mates and have the meal to share. Its actually very good value. Feeding 4 for a fiver each.

I’ve actually been in to this place and its great tasting food. I had a Sloppy Jo burger by itself and the ribs meal. I can’t believe they are selling ribs, corn, onion rings, chips and coleslaw for £5.99. Surely that must go up at some point.
Here is the Sloppy Jo burger meal. Thats great value too. The pulled pork and chili is delicious and the burger is the nicest I’ve tasted in a while. That’s £5.75.
