    Cool $55 Says You Can't Eat This

    I give you the Eagle's Deli Challenge:

    Deli and Restaurant
    1918 Beacon St. Brighton MA, 02135

    The Challenge: Eat a 5-pound burger, which includes 5 pounds of hamburger, 2 pounds of bacon and cheese, 5 pounds of fries, and a giant pickle.

    Made For: 1 Person

    Price Tag: $55

    Time Limit:
    60 Minutes (1 Hour).

    The Rules: You must complete the burger, fries and pickle within the alloted time. No potty breaks allowed, the Challenge is Eat-In only (obviously). If you vomit at any time during the challenge you automatically fail (duh). Free refills on drinks during the challenge. For the sake of formalities, if you finish the challenge in the last 10 minutes there will be a 5-minute waiting period before victory is declared.

    Prize for Finishing: Your money back + $100, a T-Shirt and (of course) bragging rights.

    Win/Loss Ratio: 1500+ Wins, 0 Defeats. Undefeated Challenge.

    Famous Challengers:
    Adam Richman (Man v. Food), David Blaine (Magician), Joey Chestnut (MLE) and Crazy Legs Conti (MLE) among others.

    ...I got all that off of a fan page dedicated to the restaurant. I dropped by Eagles Deli last weekend hoping to see someone attempting it but it appears folks have resigned themselves to it simply being unbeatable. A damned shame since the EDC is one of the few food challenges that remains undefeated by MLE. By the way, MLE stands for Major League Eating. Most of you know about the Annual Hot Dog Easting Contest in New York every 4th of July.

    Anywho, some of the staff said they recently applied to work at the restaurant in the hopes of seeing someone beat it. The owner of the store is getting older and according to legend, if no one beats the challenge before he dies he has it written into his will tbe EDC will be retired as undefeated. According to the picures I've seen it definitely IS doable. It's 10 patties stacked on top of each other topped with cheese and bacon. I usually eat a burger or two when I dine there. The fries they give you are about a third of what you see pictured. I clean my plate in 7 minutes on average.

    Oh, I'm getting ahead of myself: I told the cashier over the weekend "The next time I visit, I'm going to end the streak."

    What makes me think I'll do better? For one, I can't vomit. I had an operation as a kid that made that impossible. The gag reflex works but nothing ever comes up. Second, I eat big. As I said just now I clear their traditional-sized burgers and fries in under 10 minutes. Doing the math, I've concluded I can finish the entire challenge in under 30 minutes and here's how I broke it down:

    10 Patties + Bacon and Cheese: 1 Patty consumed in 45 Seconds, 45 x 10 = 14 minutes, 50 seconds.

    Fries: Handful (10 fries) consumed in 10 seconds, 10 handfuls (100 fries) per minute, fries cleared in 10 minutes

    Pickle: Consumed in 2 minutes.

    Now here's exactly how I plan to do it in order--

    1. Start by breaking the burger apart and spread 8 of them across the fries. Dump a cup of ketchup on the fries + burger patties to help soften the fries + burger patties.

    2. Eat the remaining Patties + Cheese and Bacon plus any excess cheese that ran off the other patties with the bun.

    3. Eat the pickle (duh).

    4. Eat the remaing 8 Patties Caveman style.

    5. Eat the fries with a fork.

    6. Checkmate ^_^

    What about you? Think you can do it?

    Hell no but good luck and come back telling us if you did it!

    This challenge has never been completed. I don't think it's humanly possible. That amount of food is roughly the equivalent of 1.5-2 babies.

    The OP will fail miserably.

    I doubt you could do it, but you can try I guess. You'll be sick as hell.

    If it were just the burger I'd say you have a shot. But putting in that many fries is ridiculous. But hey, 55 bucks for one giant meal and not having the urge to eat anything for the next few weeks isn't all that bad, deal-wise.

    I can't do it, but that's because of the sheer volume of food there compared to what my stomach can hold. It's good you have a positive attitude on doing it, but don't ignore the variable of space. You might be able to eat a burger quickly, but eating faster isn't going to make it become digested and move OUT of your stomach just as quickly. It might be hard to fit it all in there without tremendous pain.

    I think the gallon and cinnamon challenge at the same time is more feasible than this lol.
