For many people, New Year’s resolutions mean dieting. But before we start ours, we’re having one more blow out! The List is checking out some of our favorite food challenges across America.

1. Giligin’s — Scottsdale, AZ  

We’re starting our food journey in Scottsdale, Arizona. Giligin’s is home to the Five-Pound Tater Tot Challenge. If you eat the whole tray in one hour, you get a $50 bar tab and the tots are free! 

2. The Big Texan Steak Ranch — Amarillo, TX 

Our next stop is in Amarillo, Texas to the Big Texan Steak Ranch. The star of this legendary landmark is The 72 oz. Steak Challenge. Contestants have one hour to eat the 72 oz. steak – that’s 4.5 pounds! With this, they must eat a salad, baked potato, shrimp cocktail and a piece of bread. If you finish, you get the steak for free and lots of bragging rights.

If you are too full after the challenge, take a ride home in their steer limo or take a rest at The Big Texan Motel!   

3. Krisch’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlour Massapequa, NY 

Our last stop is in Massapequa, New York at Krisch’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlour. At Krisch’s, they bring the kitchen to you with the Kitchen Sink Ice Cream Challenge. Challengers must eat ten scoops of ice cream and three toppings in an hour. If completed, you get the ice cream on the house and a T-shirt.

Here’s to getting your grub on with these crazy food challenges. Game on!
