Astoria’s Uncle Jack’s Meat House is celebrating its third anniversary, and owner Willie Degel is making sure it’s one for the books.
The Food Network star and Uncle Jack’s owner is hosting the first annual Uncle Jack’s burger eating contest to celebrate the restaurant’s milestone on Nov. 23.
Ten contestants will have the chance to eat their way to the $3,000 prize. Participants will have 10 minutes to eat as many “Ooey Gooey Mooey” burgers as they can — an Uncle Jack’s concoction that comes drenched in blue cheese fondue and bacon jam.
