THE VORTEX EATING CHALLENGE
We get lots of questions about our Superstack Challenge. In fact, the following list of FAQs is based on actual conversations that we’ve had with people on more than one occasion.
● Is the Super-Stack Challenge available right now?
Unfortunately, due to limited staffing during these strange times, we are not able to offer the Super-Stack as an eating challenge. We might still be able to cook you one if you’d like though. Please ask your server.
● What is the Super-Stack Challenge?
The goal of this challenge is to finish eating the entire Quadruple Coronary Bypass Burger “meal” within thirty (30) minutes. The contents of the meal includes: One (1) Quadruple Coronary Bypass Burger; ten ounces (10-oz.) of french fries, and ten ounces (10-oz.) of tater tots, topped with sixteen ounces (16-oz.) of our Cheesy-Cheese Goo, sprinkled with bacon bits, and; two (2) thirty-two ounce (32-oz.) fountain soft drinks (for a total of 64-oz.). Additional fountain drinks (or water) will be provided by request.
● So, I just need to finish the burger?
No. You need to finish everything in the bowl, along with two 32-ounce beverages, just like it says above.
● When can I take the challenge?
The challenge is ONLY available Monday through Friday, from 2:00 PM until 5:00 PM, at either Vortex location.
● Do I just show up and order it?
You could, but it would be super cool if you would call ahead to let us know you’re coming. Then our staff will be prepared. Just call The Vortex location you’re heading to, and dial extension 2 to speak with the manager-on-duty. When you arrive, let your server know you’re going to attempt the challenge and the manager will bring the official Agreement for your review and signature.
● Can I read the Challenge Agreement ahead of time?
Of course. You can CLICK HERE to view this document.
● Can I get the burger cooked “well-done?”
No, the Double, Triple, and Quadruple Coronary Bypass Burgers ALL come “as-is” only – and part of that is being cooked to medium.
● But what about the mayo? I HATE mayonnaise.
Sure, we can make it for you without mayo. You just won’t be able to attempt the challenge in that case. Absolutely no changes or alterations can be made to the meal if you’re taking the challenge.
● What happens if I puke?
If you get sick, we ask that you use the special bucket provided specifically for the challenge. Otherwise, you will be required to clean up your own barf. In that case, we’ll provide you with all the necessary cleaning supplies.
● Wouldn’t an hour would be a more realistic amount of time to finish?
Trust us, we’ve done the research. If you’re not finished in 30 minutes, you’re not going to finish.
● What do I get if I complete the challenge?
First, the “Super-Stack Challenge Meal” will be provided free-of-charge. That’s a huge savings. Then there’s the fame. Your name and photo will appear all over our social media pages, and on the official “Document of Record,” which is displayed inside both Vortex locations. You will also receive an official, “Super-Stack Challenge” T-Shirt. Winning the Super-Stack Challenge is the only way you can get one of these shirts, so the black market price will be astronomical.
● Can the challenge be taken as a group?
No way. One person per Quadruple Coronary Bypass Burger meal. In fact, if anyone else at the table even touches anything on the plate, that will be considered a forfeit of the challenge. Of course a group can order the burger just to eat it. But why would you do that?
● Can I order a Quadruple Bypass Burger anytime?
Nope. Even if you’re NOT taking the challenge, the Double, Triple, and Quadruple Coronary Bypass Burgers are ALL only available Monday through Friday, from 2:00 PM until 5:00 PM. But, you can order the Classic Bypass, and the Single Coronary Bypass Burger anytime.
