Today some friends and I drove to Tomball, TX. to Mel's Cafe. It is the home of the Mega Mel Burger.

1.5 pounds of fresh ground

1 pound of bacon

.25 pound of American cheese

lots, lots of lettuce, tomatoes, onions & pickles

If you eat in 2 hours or less you get on the Wall of Fame and a T-shirt. Nobody in our group tried but a guy at a table near us did. That's our group in the background.


We left before finding out if he finished but his chances didn't look good after 20 minutes. He was already in pain.

I put away two 3/4 lb hamburgers one time. Maybe I would have a shot. It looks bigger than the ingredients list suggests though.

There are better pics on the website. They keep track of how long it takes for the winners to eat it. Believe it or not the best time is 9 minutes by one person. Two have finished in 10 minutes.

The only food challenges I have taken were all related to hot stuff. I put habanero peppers on a lot of what I eat, so I am used to extremely hot food. I haven't failed one of those yet :).

There is a place in Pennsylvania that has big burger challenges. I have always been tempted to try.
