Challenger Burger

When it comes to food challenges in Knoxville, one of my favorite things to eat is burgers. I feel like there are so many ways burgers can be made, which is what makes this challenge fun. One of the Knoxville Food Challenges worth checking out is the Challenger Burger. This burger is a 3-pound burger with 3 pounds of fries included. If you complete the challenge, you get the burger for free. 


Bratwurst Eating Contest

If you think that you can’t get enough of bratwursts, then this is the challenge for you. The Bratwurst Eating Contest by @SchulzBrauBC is done around Oktoberfest and it’s really popular. If you’re going to be over this way during the contest, make sure you sign up! 

Ye Olde Steakhouse

If eating a steak is your thing, then perhaps this Ye Olde Steakhouse food challenge is for you. Rumor has it that they serve a 60-ounce steak. Can you even imagine? It’s said that this steak just melts in your mouth, so it shouldn’t be too hard to eat. Are you up for the challenge?

Pizzilla Challenge

Raise your hand if you love pizza, because this Knoxville Food Challenge is for you. The type of pizza is New York Pizza, which sounds so delicious right now. This is a NY Pizza, so make sure you bring a hungry friend. 


Rocky Top Challenge

Another fun Knoxville food challenge is the It's All So Yummy. This is an ice cream sundae challenge, but you must finish it within an hour. If you do finish it in an hour, it’s free. I’d say this is one challenge that I can get behind. 


I'd love to hear about your experience if you do decide to take the plunge. In the meantime, let me know if you have any questions about Knoxville's food scene – I'm happy to help!
