In the world of competitive eating, Naader “FreakEating” Reda is a household name. You’ve probably seen him before, once when he tried to smash a 50 X 50 In-N-Out burger, or when he ate a shit-ton of McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets to break the world record.
Or perhaps more recently, when he completed a 5 Pound Burrito Challenge in less than 25 minutes.
On July 6, more than 100,000 viewers tuned into the FOODBEAST Live Stream on Facebook to witness FreakEating take on a burrito so big it required two people to roll it.
“The Buehler,” a gargantuan burrito stuffed with carnitas, shredded beef, chicken, rice, beans, cheese, black olives, and covered in a spicy ranchero sauce, was created by the Santa Ana-based restaurant La Chiquita Mexican Food.
La Chiquita has been open since the 1950s, and since then only six brave souls have been able to sign their name on “The Buehler’s” shirt of champions.
In total, it took FreakEating 23 minutes to completely dust the five pound behemoth. It’s safe to assume this challenge was just a walk in the park for FreakEating. The dude didn’t even finish a whole glass of water.
Think you can take on “The Buehler?” Pull up to La Chiquita, and tell them FOODBEAST sent you!
