I'm a VIP ticket holder. HOW MANY TACO BITES CAN I EAT? In terms of your specific physical limitations, there’s no way for us to know, but let’s say “a lot.” If you’re asking how many taco bites you can try... all of them. Each competitor will be serving up bites after the official competition and tacos have been received by the judges. Just remember, while you sample yourself into Taco-blivian, you will be supporting DCO and the MANY families we serve with Developmental Disabilities.
