Get ready for a mouthwatering event that combines two of life's greatest joys: burritos and friendly competition! El Chingon, the "Bad Ass Mexican" restaurant and bar nestled in San Diego's vibrant Gaslamp Quarter (560 Fifth Ave.), is bringing you the ultimate showdown with its "Fat Ass" burrito eating contest. And guess what? You're invited!

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, June 6, at 6 p.m., because that's when the gastronomic battle begins. Teams of two will take on the challenge of devouring El Chingon's legendary "Fat Ass" burrito, weighing a hefty five pounds. Picture this: three flour tortillas piled high with mouthwatering carne asada, refried beans, rice, pico de gallo, and a tantalizing Chingon cheese blend. Can you handle it?

But wait, it gets even more exciting! El Chingon's sister location in Fort Worth, Texas, will be hosting its own burrito-eating competition simultaneously. Both contests will be live-streamed on El Chingon's Facebook page, so you won't miss a second of the action.

Brace yourselves for a bottle of the prestigious 1942 Don Julio tequila, $100 gift cards, exclusive El Chingon swag, and of course, the ultimate bragging rights.

Here's the best part: entry to this epic event is absolutely complimentary. That's right, you can join the thrill and witness the gastronomic spectacle without spending a dime.
