HAMPTON ROADS - To kick off November, a month many look forward to for food, News 3 is taking on the many Hampton Roads food challenges.

Will our competitors be victorious or will they prove they aren’t hungry enough for Hampton Roads?

The week-long tour started at Charlie’s American Café off Granby in Norfolk. The challenge was to eat a massive 12 egg omelet with sausage, bacon, peppers, onions and cheese. Partnered with eight large pancakes.

This is a one person challenge, you have an hour to eat the entire meal and cannot leave the table once the time starts. If you eat the entire breakfast you get a t-shirt, if you lose you have to pay for the meal. Click here to see if we accomplished it.

Next we headed to the Dirty Buffalo for the “Dirty” challenge with a gigantic mix of food.

The dirty challenge was a one person challenge. Contestants ate two burgers, two hot dogs, chicken tenders with sauce, mac and cheese and finished off with pulled pork. The dirty challenge is only offered one time a year. Click here to see how that challenge went.

A Brothers Pizza challenge proved to be A LOT of pizza. The challenge is a 24-inch pizza, layered with sauce and a generous portion of their fresh mozzarella. Challengers get to choose their three toppings, but one must be a meat. The challenge must be completed in an hour and you can't get sick or get up from the table. Check out how we did in that challenge by clicking here.

Finally we visited Jack Browns for their Fried Oreo challenge. The goal is to see if you can beat the current record of how many fried Oreos that can be eaten in a specific amount of time. Click here to see if News 3's Anthony Sabella beat the record.
