“He who wears the crown must BEAR the weight”
Named for the local diary bar, where these chili and slaw burgers became famous, the Chuckburger Eating Contest will be held at 11:30 a.m. The contest is limited to no more than 8 participants, and sign-up will be based on a first come, first served basis.
Participants must be 18 years or older, and must sign a liability waiver. Each contestant will have 5 large Chuckburgers or 8 small Chuckburgers to eat in 5 minutes. The contestant will be considered finished when a Judge confirms that the contestant has swallowed all 5/8 Chuckburgers. In the event of a tie, the contestants will be given one Chuckburger.
Whoever consumes it first without any food left in his/her mouth will be the winner. The contest winner will receive a $100 cash prize, a trophy and the distinction of having his/her name on a plaque at Chuck’s Dairy Bar in Rolling Fork.
