Posted on April 19th, 2018 by TEAM Schostak in Community, Events

Del Taco will bring back its local fan favorite Epic Burrito Challenge for a fifth consecutive year on Saturday, May 5 at 11 a.m. at its Dearborn Heights restaurant in honor of Cinco de Mayo.

We are thrilled to continue our signature Epic Burrito Challenge, offering our guests a unique and interactive way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with authentic, fresh Mexican cuisine. This has become a highly-anticipated event among the community and our team members. Each year is always better than the last, and we look forward to another fun and exciting competition that has proven to be a can’t miss event.

Those interested in participating in the 2018 Epic Burrito Challenge can register at the Dearborn Heights Del Taco restaurant, located at 5644 Telegraph Road, from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. on May 5. The first 10 participants to register for the competition will be tasked with the challenge of eating two of Del Taco’s signature one-pound Epic Burritos within 15 minutes.

The first individual to finish both of the Epic Burritos, or the person who eats the most within 15 minutes, will receive one free Del Taco Epic Burrito per week for one year. The second place winner will receive a catering package for up to 20 people from Del Taco and third place will receive one free meal of their choice. In addition, each participant will receive a special Del Taco t-shirt to celebrate the event.

In addition to the Epic Burrito Challenge, all metro Detroit Del Taco restaurants, including Dearborn Heights, Livonia, Roseville, Clawson and Warren, will be offering $.75 cent value tacos and $1 Del Tacos on Cinco de Mayo from 4 p.m.-9 p.m.
