Mississippi was missing out on the love, so we decided to track down some food challenges there and post them up, starting with The Whammy Burger Challenge at Burgers and Blues. This isn’t your typical burger challenge either, the patties are huge, the fries weigh in at a pound by themselves, and if that wasn’t enough, you have to drink a root beer float on top of it. So do you think you have what it takes to take down The Whammy?
