The Don Juan Challenge

Posted by admin on Sunday, January 16, 2011

Juan in a Million’s Don Juan Tacos are world-renowned. We wanted to try our hand at tackling the Taco Challenge. The challenge is simple. Eat as many Don Juan Tacos as possible. There is no time limit or bathroom breaks.

The Don Juan consists of:

¾ Pound of:

  • Whole Idaho Potato
  • Dash Salt, Paprika and Black Pepper
  • Bacon
  • Two Eggs
  • Served in a Tortilla
  • Shredded Cheese

Cameron Harley (left) and Craig Allen are our brave challengers.

"Fork You!"

Cameron and Craig are not competitive eaters, but they were willing to tempt fate and eat as many tacos as their stomachs would allow.

Patrick “Minneapolis Kid†Vandam (RIP) held the current record of 8 3/4 tacos.
