Captain America's Hamburger Heaven

Captain America's is a restaurant and bar (really, it's a burger joint) in Ferntree Gully. They have funky drinks, and weird slogans are plastered everywhere, but it's really all about:

The Big Heavenly Burger Challenge.

For guys, the challenge is to eat a burger with 'the lot' weighing 1 kilogram with 600 grams of chips, and for girls, it's the burger with 300 grams of chips.

If you can eat the lot in under an hour, your name goes on Captain America's Honour Board, but if you beat the current record (which is something like under 8 minutes for guys), your meal is FREE.

My lot included egg, bacon, onion, pineapple, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and in the end, lots and lots of pain.

I came so close, yet so far:

If you want my advice: don't pace yourself. Eat fast. And seriously consider playing either Eye of the Tiger of the Rocky theme song in the background.

I thought the staff, like the chips, were great here, but if I ever see another burger it will be too soon. Here's Captain America's full menu.

Outback Jacks Bar & Grill

If burgers aren't your thing, you'll find another food challenge at Outback Jacks in Knox City.

They offer a 1 kilogram rump Steak Challenge with wedges and veggies eat it all in 30 minutes and your meal is half price, AND you get a free Tshirt.

Know somewhere else that offers a good food challenge? Have you ever entered a food challenge? Leave a comment below.

Wow, it's just like the Man vs. Food show. Congratulations (I think) on a stellar effort. That was a big burger.
