After settling for silver in a beer-chugging contest, Joey “Jaws” Chestnut is No. 1 in our hearts again after downing 93 burgers at the Krystal Square Off V. Chestnut was ten burgers short of his record-setting eat last year, but there are only so many burgers you can consume in eight minutes. Patrick “Deep Dish” Bertoletti swallowed 85 Krystals, out-eating fading food legend Takeru Kobayahshi. Other local highlights: Tim “Eater X” Janus captured fifth place with 64 burgers, and Grub Street pal Crazy Legs Conti finished in seventh place, with 49 Krystals. [Krystal Square Off Blog]
