News 2 takes the Philly Cheesesteak Challenge : 5 lbs of food in 35 mins

Posted: Updated:

The Lowcountry is known for having some of the best food in the entire country and Berkeley County is stepping in to add a dash of local flavor as well.

We asked News 2 viewers on Facebook to tell us some of the best places to eat in the county and they logged on with some great ideas.

A popular place was Philly Cheese Steak, in Goose Creek, on St. James Avenue. There, they have an eating competition where they challenge you to eat 5 pounds of food. That's 2 pounds of cheesesteak, 2 pounds of chicken cheese and 1 pound of fries. You think that's a lot? Well you only have 35 minutes to complete the challenge - to get it all for free.

News 2 Weekend Anchor Larry Collins and Photojournalist Taylor Barbour took a trip to the restaurant to check out the famous eating challenge. Could Taylor tackle the massive amounts of meat?
