The Olympics of Overindulgence: Here's a Look at Who's Coming to Iron Fork 2017

There's not too many opportunities in this city where food-lovers can eat barbecue, burgers, Mexican food, fried chicken and Asian fusion in the same meal, but on Wednesday, April 26, you can do just that at Dallas Observer's Iron Fork. The annual food extravaganza features a seemingly endless array of bites from Dallas restaurants, along with eight beer/wine/cocktail samples and a live food competition.

The chefs facing off in this year's Iron Fork Chef Challenge are Aaron Staudenmaier of the new Lovers Seafood and Market and Eric Dreyer of Dallas dining mainstay Fearing's. The two will go head-to-head live on stage, whipping up meals on the fly with surprise ingredients supplied from Whole Foods, and the competition will be moderated by a certain Chef With No Name.

During that epic throw-down, Iron Fork-goers will have access to all-you-can-eat food samples from the following local restaurants and bakeries:

9 Rabbits Bakery
Asador
Asian Mint
Cane Rosso
