Wednesday, watch as Man vs. Food’s Adam Richman eschews “chili” for chilLi the Springfield way.
In the Springfield-based episode, taped in July, Richman visits Springfield favorites D’Arcy’s Pint and Cozy Dog Drive-In, sampling local delicacies such as the horseshoe and hot dog on a stick. The titular premise, however, comes into play when he visits Joe Rogers’ Original Recipe Chili Parlor, and attempts to eat six bowls of their infamous firebrand chili. The current record is five bowls.
Man vs. Food airs Wednesdays at 9pm on Travel Channel (cable channel 62).
