ESPER TAKES BUFFALO BUFFET BOWL!

Major League Eating is proud to announce the return of the Buffalo Buffet Bowl to its 2018 schedule of eating championships. As dictated by tradition, this year's event shall take place on the Saturday evening during The National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival—our republic's annual celebration of the Buffalo wing and the Buffalo wing-centered lifestyle.

The Buffalo Buffet Bowl is a celebration of Buffalo Cuisine. In years past, the event has seen the world's greatest eaters tackle an array of Buffalo Cuisine favorites, such as chicken strips, beef on weck and Buffalo-style pizza. When you're in the 716, this is what you eat. And you are happy and honored to do so.

At the 2017 event, Geoffrey Esper repeated his 2016 victory by consuming five pounds of Buffalo delicacies in just three minutes and 51 seconds; Joey Chestnut and Carmen Cincotti would tie for second, each consuming five pounds of food in four minutes and seven seconds.

The 2018 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!
