Food & Charity Come Together For Taco Eating Contest


Taco Eating Contest Clarendon VAMexican food is always on point… especially when supporting a good cause! On November 16th, our Clarendon restaurant and bar hosted a taco eating contest to raise funds for charity. Joined by our neighbors at Orangetheory Fitness, over 26 hopeful participants joined in the competition with prizes given away to the top three winners. The competition was stiff with over 360 tacos downed, but the winner could not be denied; he finished 14 tacos in under five minutes! First place was rewarded with a $50 cash prize while the second and third place winners received Don Tito gift cards. Best of all: we raised hundreds of dollars to help women and children get on the right path to health insurance. 

Continuing the philanthropic spirit, we donated the leftover food to the local Arlington County Fire Department, for their fantastic and tireless work keeping our community safe.
