Burrito-Eating Contest on Cinco De Mayo

Posted: Updated:

Some people are eating up a food challenge this Cinco de Mayo.

At Taco del Mar in south Bismarck, a burrito-eating contest is on the menu.

The test is to see if you can eat a five pound burrito in 30 minutes or less to get your burrito for free!

It's the sixth year for the eating contest, and it looks like a workout to just prepare it!

Several choose to stretch their stomachs and see how much burrito they can stuff in.

This is the second year Evan Keller has attempted to win the free food.

Last year he didn't quite do it, but this year, he let us watch, as he tried out a new strategy.

"Last year I didn't really know how to attack it, so kind of peeled it apart, and just kind of shoveling it in my mouth, feel like I have a little better grip on it this year." says Evan Keller, burrito challenger.

According to the owner, 18 people tried the burrito feed challenge and only two succeeded.

Their names are Peter Manstrom and Scott Vollrath, and unfortunately, Evan got full, and ran out of time.

Maybe next year for Evan!
