Restaurant Express: Champion's Sports Bar & Grill
R U Ready For Some Football?
Name: Champion's Sports Bar & Grill
Locations: 1007 Tony Canadeo Run, Green Bay, WI 54304-3763
History: Owner Ron Enke sold his restaurant-bar in Gay Mills, WI, and moved to Green Bay, which seemed fitting for a huge Packers fan. Champion's holds more than 5,000 pieces of Packers memorabilia for fans to enjoy while grabbing a bite to eat. The restaurant has a pro shop where NFL merchandise can be purchased. Just a Hail Mary from Lambeau Field, Champion's Sports Bar & Grill is the perfect place for a pre-game meal.
Menu: Champion's serves up typical game day fare including soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, and wraps. Check out the full menu.
Signature Dishes: According to the restaurant's general manager, Heath Hermans, 2 of the biggest sellers for Champion's Sports Bar & Grill are the burgers and the cheesy tater tots, now called The Champions.
Price: You can get a burger, side and drink for $10-$12.
How Champion's Is Celebrating Its MvFN Appearance: To celebrate the episode premiere, the restaurant is having a viewing party so customers can watch the show together and then enjoy the music of local band The Cougars. Champion's will be serving mini-Gravediggers, which include a 9.3 oz. burger along with 8 wings (2 with each type of sauce) for $9.30. All of this continues the 93 theme -- the number Packer Gilbert "The Gravedigger" Brown wore.
All About the Challenge
Name: Gravedigger Challenge
History: Champion's Sports Bar & Grill has offered No. #93 (The Gravedigger) for some time. It includes a 93-oz. Angus beef burger, along with 40 wings and an autographed 8-by-10 of Gilbert Brown. The Gravedigger is meant for 6 to 8 people and costs $93.00. Its spinoff, The Gravedigger Challenge, was created for Man v. Food Nation.
Ingredients: The Gravedigger Challenge is a huge 93-oz. Angus beef burger that challengers have an hour to finish.
Attempts & Successes: Heath says he has seen groups of 4 people come in and eat the No. #93, but never 2 people.
Winners Receive: No one has ever successfully finished the challenge, so the reward has not been determined.
Other Food Challenges: Champion's does not have any other food challenges, and plans to offer The Gravedigger for a while.
