Be a part of the largest growing community of Taco Loving foodies. San José is home to the only MLE sanctioned Taco Eating Contest in Northern California. The Chachos Taco tastes great but try scarfing down 101 in less than 8 minutes. Part salsa, part carne asada, part tortilla, this festival is one for the books. In 2014, Matt Stoney took the belt of “Chachos Taco Champion”, eating his way through 101 tacos in 8 minutes. This competition brings out over a dozen eaters, many of them professional competitors who want to earn the right to be called “Chachos Taco Champion” and take home not only a sizable belt but serious prize dollars to go with it.
