If there were a beer hall in Ohio that didn’t need to rely on giant-food gimmicks to get crowds through its doors, it would be Mecklenburg Gardens. It’s been in business for more than 150 years and has picked up a slew of accolades in the process.
But in spite of this, the German beer hall decided it, too, would enter the large-hot-dog stakes with the introduction of the Uber Terminator Challenge...so named because it might just kill you. The challenge requires that you eat a two-pound, 30-inch mettwurst, half a pound of sauerkraut, a mound of green peppers and onions, and a respectable one pound bun.
If you’re competitive, you have an hour to consume the $50 USD meal, which will earn you a t-shirt, a spot on the wall of fame, and, for some bizarre reason, a free meal — presumably to be claimed at another time.
