5 pounds! That's a BIG Burrito!

I had a hard time eating my burger after watching the 5 Pound Burrito Contest at The Sandbar, yesterday afternoon! Three guys vied for winner, bragging rights and a bar tab. They had to eat a 5 lb. burrito in one hour and in the end Tom Schaefer, shown, did it with over 10 minutes to spare!

Tom, at left, along with Nate Melvin, center and Sean Meyer, right, took up the challenge. Channel 7's Deco Drive was there filming. It is scheduled to be aired tonight, Thursday, at 7:30 pm.

This is the burrito, it's hard to tell the size, but it was like the size of a cake, with all the burrito fixin's - meat, rice, tomatoes, etc. Very large.

 This challenge can be taken up any time at The Sandbar (3064 Grand Avenue), just order it on the menu, it's about $25 and if you eat the whole thing, your name goes up on the wall and you don't have to pay!

The clock kept ticking and time seemed to go quite slow. The cooks, the waitstaff, all the customers cheered the eaters on. It was sort of like the Hot Dog Eating Contest, but not a race and not as messy. Nate fell out of the contest first, followed by Sean.

Then it was all Tom, with just a little left, which seemed to be the hardest part. But in the end, he did it!

Tom's final words? They were "I cannot move right now!"
