Shrimp Eating Championship Coming To Doc’s!

On October 16, 2014 at Doc’s Seafood and Steaks, “Island Tom” Hartford set a Guinness World Record for the most shrimps eaten in 3 minutes. And now, we’re getting ready to do it again.

Destination Texas is teaming up with Doc’s Seafood and Steaks to host a Texas “shrimp eating” championship with the goal to set a new Guinness World Record.

What are the requirements to set the record?

Only one shrimp may be eaten at a time and must be fully swallowed before starting on the next. And you have to use a standard seafood fork must be used (no using your hands) AND one hand must remain behind your back at all times.

When will the Texas Shrimp-Eating Championship take place?

We’re ironing out the details so stay tuned!
