If you are a really hungry BBQ lover, then you need to try the Fat Ass Muff Challenge at Bone Lick BBQ. Pounds of pulled pork, sausage, beef brisket, jalapeño infused bacon and boneless ribs may seem like enough of a task, but they’re not done yet. Add collards, crisp onions, and a homemade coleslaw in for a sandwich that will earn you a spot on Bone Lick BBQ’s wall of fame!
Carnivore Challenge from Big Pie in the Sky (Kennesaw & Roswell)
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to finish 11lbs of meat on the biggest monster pizza you’ve ever seen. The Carnivore Challenge at Big Pie in the Sky is for only the fiercest of pizza enthusiasts. The rules? You may choose one hungry friend to help, but you only have an hour to finish! This challenge costs $50 to try, but the prize money comes in at a whopping $250! With only 7 teams to ever beat the challenge, a win earns you MAJOR bragging rights.
Scorpion Burger from Grub Burger Bar (Cumming, North Druid Hills & Smyrna)
Looking for a heat challenge? A burger with pepper jack cheese and jalapeños has a kick, but a burger with pepper jack cheese, jalapeños AND scorpion peppers (aka one of the hottest foods on earth)?! You’re gonna need a milkshake chaser to kill the spice of this atomic sauce.
Krispy Kreme Burger from Parma Tavern (Buford)
We go together like peanut butter ’n’ jelly, peas ’n’ carrots, hamburgers and…KRISPY KREME DONUTS?! Parma Tavern’s Krispy Kreme Burger is the ultimate marriage of sweet and savory with half a pound of juicy burger topped with applewood-smoked bacon, caramelized onions, American cheese and BBQ sauce all nestled between two pillows of Krispy Kreme donut buns. Drool-worthy, indeed!
Sublime Donut Burger from Cypress Street Pint and Plate (Midtown)
Is Cypress Street Bar genius or mad!? What’s the difference?! They serve up this burger with cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and applewood bacon. The twist? Instead of buns, think two Sublime doughnuts. The Sublime Doughnut Burger is the perfect solution for those torn between savory and sweet.
Chef’s Breakfast from One-Eared Stag (Old Fourth Ward)

You never know what you’re gonna get with the Chef’s Breakfast Sunday morning at One Eared Stag. With 3-5 random creations based on what the chef feels like and a Schlitz in the middle of the masterpiece, you roll the dice on getting anything from a yogurt parfait with caramel nuts to a waffle and bacon to fried chicken liver on toast. If you’ve ever stumbled into Sunday brunch and just wanted to tell the waiter “surprise me,” then the One Eared Stag’s Chef’s Breakfast is for you.
Dinosaur Beef Rib from Twin Smokers (Downtown)
Not much is better than smokey & juicy ribs slathered with sweet sweet BBQ sauce. Sound like just another awesome rack of ribs? These babies are about a FOOT LONG! Come hungry or be prepared to ask for a doggy bag, because you’re gonna have to save room for the Double Trouble hand-spun milkshake, too!
Fried Elvis from Takorea (Midtown)
Here’s one for all of our Hound Dogs out there…Takorea’s Fried Elvis Sundae combines the best Mexican and Korean sweet treats to honor the American rock ’n’ roll legend. Tempura fried bananas and peanut butter ice-cream are mounded into a crispy cinnamon tortilla with whipped cream, nuts and a cherry on top.
Baked Alaska from Marcel (West Midtown)
Bring on the drama! The Baked Alaska from Marcel is lit on fire at your table. This performance could be reason enough to try the dessert, but the poppy seed cake and strawberry ice cream steal the show!
