An Illinois restaurant is being recognized as one of the "Craziest Restaurants In America".

Calling all spicy food lovers. If you like to test your own tolerance of hot foods, you're really in for it at one restaurant that Food Network has called one of the "Craziest Restaurants In America".


The spicy challenges aren't really in my repertoire. The last time I tried, I was brought to literal tears by chicken tenders that were smothered in taste-bud-murdering peppery sauce. Not sure I've tasted anything right since.

The Crazy Spicy Restaurant

Jake Melnick's Corner Tap in Chicago is the sports bar with the distinction. See why Food Network put them on the list:

If the XXX Wings, made with ghost, habanero and Trinidad scorpion peppers, at Chicago's Jake Melnick's prove simply too spicy to bear, all you have to do is ring the restaurant's bell, and an array of milk, vanilla ice cream, fresh oranges and bread will be delivered to your table to rescue you.

You eat the spicy wings, cave in, ring a bell, and you get the relief delivered to your table. Did you see how many peppers are in those wings? Oy.

Guys, they even have XXX Cauliflower so vegans, you too can lose all feeling in your mouth for 24 hours.

I feel like I would just need to drink that ranch to be honest. Obviously, they have more mild offerings for wimps casual diners like me, like PB&J wings, which have a Thai peanut sauce and raspberry chipotle jelly.

Would you try the XXX Wings? Do you think you could make it without needing the ice cream and milk? Let us know in the app chat!
