durangoZ is located near the central Gold Coast, Queensland, just off the Pacific Motorway. The challenge started in 2013, the same year the restaurant opened .

One source states  “Fri & Sat nights – Big Burrito Challenge- order a big burrito meal and inform the waitress you want to challenge. If you can eat the Big Burrito Meal in 3 minutes you Win a free Big Burrito next time you dine in.”

Their menu  describes “Big Burrito – 12 inch flour tortilla filled with your choice of meats, Mexican rice, black turtle beans, lettuce, pico de salsa, smothered with tomato salsa!” It comes out cool, so you don’t have to worry about burning your mouth while racing.

[results]Jake Reid  was the first success, on 21st Nov 2013! Also a Jason on 24th Jan 2014 apparently.

Brett  tried and failed, mid-September 2013
Col the Conqueror’s  review: I visited on Sat 22nd Feb 2014. At that stage 2 people had completed the challenge, out of around 10 attempts. The first guy to finish took nearly the whole 3 minutes. My time was 50-something seconds :) I love speed challenges! They’re pretty rare though, as the majority of restaurant challenges are quantity challenges.

It’s a regular menu item, and you don’t need to book ahead for the challenge.

It’s not hot – neither in spiciness nor temperature. The cool temperature is good, as you don’t want to worry about burning your mouth for a speed challenge.
