Hotter Than Hell Challenge at Dadz Bar & Grill

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

With wing eating challenges popping up in restaurants around the country, we saw this as a perfect opportunity to introduce our very own “Scoville Will.” Will rightfully earned his nickname after downing a ghost pepper without even breaking a sweat. So we decided to take him on the road to see if he could hold his own against some of the best Hot Wing Challenges!

Our first stop was at Dadz Bar & Grill in Lumberton, NJ. The Challenge: Eat 12 of Dadz “Hotter Than Hell” Jumbo wings in one sitting without any blue cheese, ranch, milk, celery, or carrots. The Prize: An “I Survived…” t-shirt and ultimate bragging rights. Did Will have the iron gut needed to survive the challenge? Watch and see.

So you can imagine my excitement when word hit the street that one was opening up (read more…)

The Chicken or the Egg in Beach Haven is well known not only locally, but also nationwide for having one of the most ridiculous challenges out there… The Ludicrous Challenge!! It got its nationwide notoriety when “Man vs. Food” star Adam Richman took on this insane challenge by eating 12 of the restaurant’s “Ludicrous” wings within 15 minutes. Locally, they are also very well known for being one of the best breakfast nooks in the area… hence the name: The Chicken or the Egg.

I’m not a hot head, and prefer to actually keep my taste buds in tact, so this particular challenge doesn’t (read more…)
