Hot dog throwdown at Roberta's

squid kun | Jul 2, 2012 08:52 AM

I don't associate Roberta's with competitive eating - more like competitive crowding around and waiting - but I see it's going head to head with Nathan's this year, staging its own Fourth of July hot dog gorge-a-thon with Crif Dogs.

The headliner is Takeru Kobayashi, past Nathan's champ and now persona non grata at Coney Island. If that's him in the photo, he appears to have put on a few pounds. Wonder how that happened.
