3:45pm 29th January 2013

A diner on the A64 is looking for people to take on it's Man vs Food challenge.

Uncle Joe's Diner near Flaxton is after people who believe they can eat two two foot hotdogs or three pounds of pancakes.

The American Roadhouse and Grill on the A64 near Flaxton is home to many Man v food challenges that have been seen on the famous TV show. We have had atomic wings, 12 super hot chicken wings, The farmyard challenge, which is a 5 LB meat fest consisting of slow cooked pulled pork, 17 sausages, 3 griddled chicken breasts, 1 LB of locally reared beef chilli, and a 1 LB bucket of mashed potato, 1 LB of onion rings and a jug of gravy. Pancake Problem, 3 LB of buttermilk pancakes, half a pound of blueberries and 5 scoops of ice cream a challenge which even Adam Richman didnt manage to complete on the TV series !

The house challenge"The 6 LB burger challenge" still remains nameless... the first person to complete the challenge will find theselves not only on our Wall of Fame but also with the challenge being renamed after the victor ! First though they will have to munch their way through 2 LB of beef burger, 1 LB bread roll, 2 LB of potato fries and 1 LB of beer battered onion rings ! The closest finisher had just 8 ounces left.

With nearly 1000 people following us on Facebook this feat is fast becoming a hot talking point in the local area and contestants are coming from Leeds, wakefield and Newcastle! Hundreds of photo's of challengers are on the Facebook wall of Uncle Joe's Roadhouse and Grill.
