Management at Gronk’s Grill and Bar in Superior says no one had even attempted the Great Divide Challenge before Monday.

And why would they? The challenge involves eating 8 pounds’ worth of burger and fries.

But the challenge was accepted and met Monday by local power-eating enthusiast Molly Schuyler, who downed the meal in seven minutes and 13 seconds.

“They should have made it bigger,” she told the Northland’s NewsCenter afterward.

Her friend, Julie Williams, took the 6-pound Enger Tower Burger Challenge as a show of support — and Schuyler helped her finish that, too, according to the NewsCenter.
