The object is to eat as many tacos as possible within the allotted 15-minute period.
Tacos will be served in the following order and will repeat once completed.
NO SUBSTITUTIONS ARE PERMITTED:
Contestants may eat either sitting or standing and must complete eating the entire taco and all contents before proceeding to the next taco. Contestants must wait for the starting signal and must stop eating and must promptly place their hands down on the table or at their side at the ending signal. Contestants will be allowed 15 seconds to finish any tacos already in their mouth at the time of the ending signal. Any contestant that throws up will be disqualified. Judges will be on hand to assure adherence to contest rules, tally the number of tacos eaten, monitor the “no throw up or regurgitating” rule, and to disqualify contestants who fail to adhere to the rules.
Winners will be determined by number of tacos eaten. In the event of a tie, after a brief interval, 2-minute eat-offs will take place until the winner is selected.
The contestant that eats the most tacos within the 15-minute period will be declared the District Taco Taco-Eating Champion and will receive a $100 District Taco gift certificate.
Additionally, if they break the record held by the current District Taco ‘El Campeon’, their picture will be taken and placed on the Wall of Fame with much fanfare and celebration. History will shine upon the grand champions of District Taco! Orale!!
