Major League Eating will sanction the first-ever Lupo's Chicken Spiedie-eating competition featuring world champion Joey Chestnut. The 10-minute, all-you-can-eat contest will take place on Saturday, July 26, at 7 PM, trackside at Tioga Downs Casino, Racing & Entertainment in Nichols, NY.

The contest will feature Major League Eaters from around the country, including World #1 ranked eater Joey “Jaws” Chestnut of San Jose, Calif. (69 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes), as well as a huge field of competitive eaters including #10 Jeff “The Beastman” Butler of Cleveland, Ohio, #23 Ronnie “The Real American” Hartman of Ft. Stewart, Georgia, and #26 Crazy Legs Conti of Brooklyn, New York. Local contestants will also compete.

Lupo's famous chicken spiedie is renown throughout Central New York and claims Endicott as its birthplace. The spiedie is a sandwich comprised of grilled, marinated chicken cubes on a bun. The term “spiedie” comes from the Italian spiedo, meaning spit, or spiedini, referring to cubes of meat cooked on a skewer.
