Buffalo Buffet Bowl

Date: 09/02/2017
Location: Buffalo, NY
Discipline: Buffalo Cuisine
Total Prizes: $1,750 total cash purse


Major League Eating is pleased to announce the return of the Buffalo Buffet Bowl to its 2017 slate of eating competitions. As is tradition, this event will take place on the Saturday evening during The National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival—the nation's pre-eminent celebration of the Buffalo wing and the Buffalo lifestyle.

As the warm late summer light casts its soft luminance upon the faces of the Buffalo faithful, the best eaters in the world will face off in the Buffalo Buffet Bowl. The event is a celebration of Buffalo Cuisine, the world's leading culinary style, as any one who has set foot in the 716 would know. In years past, the event has seen MLE finest tackle an array of Buffalonian favorites, such as chicken strips, crunch rolls, beef on weck and Buffalo-style pizza.

At the 2016 event, Geoffrey Esper of Oxford, MA, bested an all-star lineup for the win. Gideon Oji would finish second, while hitherto reigning Champion Joey Chestnut would have to settle for third, not something he does very often. He will be focused on redemption, no doubt.

The Buffalo Buffet Bowl is soon upon us. Labor Day weekend. Buffalo, NY. The National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival. An annual tradition like no other. Major League Eaters from near and far are warmly invited to sign up for this experience of a lifetime. At the table or in the crowd—don't you ever miss it!

3rd - $500

This contest will take place at 5.30pm Eastern, on Saturday September 2nd, 2017, at the The National Buffalo Wing Festival, held at Coca-Cola Field, 275 Washington St, Buffalo!
