    Use to eat at Stellas. They served their greasy burgers on napkins. Definitely a local favorite. One bad boy sandwich. Adam Richman size.

    Re: Food - The Stellanator

    I like to watch MvF however it looks like now restaurants are throwing **** together just to make up challenges. I know there have been a couple of MvF episodes where Adam was doing a challenge that only a handful of people had tried before him. It's kind of diluting the whole food challenge experience. Hell, just wait for McDonald's to come up with a 20 hamburger patty challenge or something stupid like that.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    This says more about the never ending hunt for publicity than it does about good food.

    Re: Food - The Stellanator

    I'm not that impressed by Adam Richman to be honest. 1/2 the time he falls quite short of winning the challenge. Granted he is not a competitive eater but I'm betting he has a losing record against the food.

    So what he makes pretty good television out of it.

    Exactly. Adam is on TV because the Food Network thinks he is an entertaining personality, not because he can eat more than any other human. If they wanted someone who would destroy all of these challenges, they would have made a show with Joey Chestnut as the host.

    I agree with this. The original challenges, like the Big Texan steak, get crowded out by the newest "eat a bajillion calf fries" challenge from somebody who wants some publicity.
