NEW ENGLAND’S FAR-OUT FOOD CHALLENGES
1918 Beacon St., Brighton
A favorite eatery among Boston College students, this Brighton deli’s famed challenge, once featured on the Travel Channel’s “Man vs. Food” program, is not for the faint of heart. To beat the Eagle’s Challenge, one must consume a 5-pound burger topped with 20 pieces of bacon and 20 pieces of American cheese, along with a 5-pound side of fries, one deli pickle, and a fountain soda — all in under an hour.
Prize: Finish the monstrous meal in time and not only will you get your money back, but you will also receive a $100 gift card, a T-shirt, and your picture on the deli’s wall of fame.
