Fun Food Challenges at Spokane Area Restaurants

Fun Food Challenges at Spokane Area RestaurantsHave you ever watched a sitcom where the characters had a funny moment where they took on an eating challenge at a restaurant to get all of their food for free? Usually, it is because the character forgot their wallet and doesn't want the restaurant to know or doesn't have enough money to cover the entire bill. 

Have you ever wondered if restaurants actually do that? Offer some crazy amount of food for free if you can eat it all in a certain timeframe. There are some restaurants around Spokane that offer eating challenges.
