Competitive eating challenges, such as the “Texas Roadhouse Roll Challenge,” have become a popular form of entertainment for many.

In this challenge, participants aim to consume as many of Texas Roadhouse’s soft, warm rolls as possible, with a recent record being set at 92 rolls consumed by a group of young men[1]. While these challenges offer a sense of achievement for participants, they also raise questions about their impact on restaurant staff and resources.

As these challenges gain popularity, it’s essential to consider the broader implications and ensure that everyone involved, from participants to servers, has a positive experience. Moreover, the restaurant industry as a whole has faced significant challenges, especially during the pandemic, with millions of restaurant workers at risk of losing their jobs and thousands of restaurants shutting down.[2]

As such, while these eating challenges may provide temporary entertainment, it’s crucial to be mindful of the broader context in which they occur.
