Travel Channel's Man v. Food ate his way through DC. Check him out tonight at 10 p.m. Eastern

Picture: Travel Channel, L.L.C.

Host Adam Richman sets out to travel the country in search of the best places to do some serious indulging. Adam's quest brings him to some of the greatest traditional food the nation can serve up, and he takes on some epic food challenges along the way. Watch the series to find out who wins when Man takes on Food.

Adam starts his DC journey with a trip to Ben's Chili Bowl. Since 1958 Ben's has been serving their famous chili to locals, celebrities, and yes...even presidents.

Next stop is
Horace & Dickies Seafood-Chicken Carry Out. They have been serving up their fried fish sandwich since 1990. What exactly makes up this tasty dish? First, they lay down 4 slices of bread, top that with 4 or 6 fried fish fillets, and then cover it with salt, pepper, hot sauce, tartar sauce, and coleslaw. Slap 4 more pieces of bread on top and you've got yourself a meal.

Adam's main challenge in DC is so monstrous, only 2 people out of hundreds have completed it. It's called The Colossal Challenge at Chick and Ruth's Delly (yes in Anapolis). Adam has 1 hour to finish a 6-pound milkshake (flavor of his choosing) and a 1-1/2 pound cold cut sandwich. A local woman (Heather) agrees to try the challenge at the same time to keep Adam company.

Will man (and woman) come out victorious over this monster of a challenge? Tune-in tonight Wednesday, October 21st, at 10 Eastern on Travel Channel to find out!

Wait - there's a Chick and Ruth's Delly in Washington, DC? Cause last I checked, the only one is in Annapolis and that's NOT Washington, DC. Northern Virginia, Montgomery County, The Inn At Little Washington and Annapolis are NOT Washington, DC. We have our own places; if you come to Washington, DC - eat in Washington, DC!

Yes, Anapolis. Correct. Honestly I feel like there are a million and one more places to visit in DC, but this was their strategy.
