The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
It's Patriots versus Steelers, Brady versus Roethlisberger, you versus beef tacos.
The Del Fuego restaurants in Patchogue, St. James and Babylon will greet the NFL season with the group's third annual taco eating contest on Sept. 10 at 7 p.m.
Entry fee for diners is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 or younger. Participants will have five minutes to eat as many soft-shell beef tacos as possible. The award given for most tacos eaten will be $100 in cash; a $50 gift card for second place; and a $25 card for third.
There also will be door prizes and giveaways.
Del Fuego is at 25 W. Main St., Patchogue, 631-569-5400; 429 N. Country Rd., St. James, 631-963-6900; and 117 Deer Park Ave., Babylon, 631-620-3700.
