Mexican fast food chain Del Taco is bringing back its Cinco de Mayo Epic Burrito Challenge to its six Metro Detroit locations.

Any hungry member of the public is invited to participate in the eating challenge: two one-pound Epic Burritos in 15 minutes. Only 10 contestants will be chosen per restaurant.

The contest is 11 a.m. May 5, and registration begins at 10 a.m. The winner at each location gets one free Del Taco Epic Burrito per week for a year. Second place earns a catered Del Taco meal for 20 and third gets a free meal of their choice.

Del Taco offers three one-pound burritos in the "Epic" line, including fajita (chicken or steak), steak and potato and chicken chipotle ranch.

Also on May 5, Del Taco will offer regular tacos for $.49 from 3-8 p.m. to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
