If you’ve been looking for an excuse to indulge in delicious gorditas, this is it. Mexican restaurant Doña Tota will host a competition on Sunday, Feb. 5 to determine the city’s gordita-eating champion.

The event, which starts at 7 p.m., will give contestants three minutes to eat as many gorditas possible. One hungry contestant will be crowned the gordita-eating champion with free food, merch and a small cash prize.

For those looking to simply enjoy the savory dish, the restaurant will offer $1 gorditas from 5 to 9 p.m. Though Doña Tota does not serve alcohol, event attendees are invited to BYOB.

Food lovers can sign up for the eating contest by calling (210) 929-0004 or messaging the restaurant on Facebook. The contest will take place at the Doña Tota location at 923 N. Loop 1604.
