7 Mile House Announces ‘4th Annual Cow Palace Burger Eating Challenge’ Winner To Be Crowned At Cow Palace Grand National Rodeo, Plus 1 Year Supply of Cow Palace Burger


It's that time of the year when the Grand National Rodeo comes to town, and that means we're putting YOU to the test to compete in our 4th Annual Cow Palace Burger Eating Challenge! Last year we crowned Sean O'Neil as the "Cow Palace Burger King". Who will defeat him this year?

In partnership with the Cow Palace Arena & Event Center, and The 77th Annual Grand National Rodeo. People may participate by dining in at 7 Mile House and ordering the Cow Palace Burger; those who finish the entire burger (see contest rules), will receive one ticket to the Grand National Rodeo and be invited to compete in the semi-finals taking place at 7 Mile House, on Oct. 11. The fastest five winners from the semi-finals will compete in the finals for the crown of ‘Cow Palace Burger King’ on October 20, 2018 at the Grand National Rodeo.

The crowned winner will receive a one-year supply of Cow Palace Burgers and bragging rights for the entire year.

What is The Cow Palace Burger?


“The Cow Palace Burger meal consists of a double Angus patty, onion rings, bacon, sautéed onions, tomato, lettuce, mayo with BBQ sauce and a side of fries, and was added to our menu about four years ago in honor of the iconic arena and event center. Customers often reminisce about the circus and livestock animals parading up Geneva avenue, beginning across the street from the restaurant, up to the Cow Palace Arena”. Although the parade of animals no longer takes place, we’re neighbors and our connection to the Cow Palace is undeniable”, shares owner, Vanessa Garcia. “Since we added the Cow Palace Burger to our menu, it was featured on Destination America's ‘United States of Bacon’ show, and has become one of our most popular items to order.” The semi-finals event will take place on October 11.
