Myrtle Beach Food Challenges
Put your appetite to the test with these food challenges in Myrtle Beach. Sign up for a restaurant’s official food challenge to try to earn a spot on their wall of fame and a little prize money (or at least a free meal). The all-you-can-eat foods will be more than most can handle, but the tasty selection of burgers, steak, and pizza makes the experiment worthwhile. For an “unofficial” challenge (a.k.a. a super-huge meal), many of these menus feature larger-than-life dishes, like a two-pound steak or monster burger you can eat to earn the respect of your family and friends.
From chain restaurants offering national food challenges to local menus with giant dishes to test loyal patrons’ appetites, there’s no shortage of mega-meals to try around the Grand Strand. Get more than your fill of crave-worthy foods and see your name on the wall of fame—or at least enjoy epic bragging rights when you polish off these food challenges in Myrtle Beach:
