Molly Schuyler, a competitive eater, won $3,000 at the first-ever annual burger eating competition at Astoria’s Uncle Jack’s Meat House.

The winner ate an impressive ten burgers in ten minutes, beating Dan ‘Killer’ Kennedy, a fellow competitive eater and YouTube food personality. Other competitors included 4 Queens-based men, and one male contestant from Pennsylvania.

According to an article published by the Astoria Post, Uncle Jack’s Meat House owner Willie Degel plans on continuing the annual competition with a grand prize of $10,000 for the winner, in addition to bringing the competition to the restaurant’s Georgia location.

Congratulations to Molly Schuyler, and best of luck to future participants!
