AS a customer gorged himself on 80 chicken wings, Arpit Jani knew he was on a winner.

 

The fowl feast had only cost the customer $20.

The finger-lickin' competition is heating up for Rockhampton's fast-food lovers.

Today McDonald's is offering its $2 cheese burgers, KFC has nine pieces of chicken for $9.95 and Global Burgers is running its 25c a chicken-wing deal.

Word is the chicken wings are flying off the counter as fast as they can cook them.

"We have been inundated with families and groups looking for a great night out without the big cost," Global Burgers owner Arpit Jani said of the Tuesday deal.

"We had one customer eat 80 chicken wings."

 

The Morning Bulletin encourages healthy eating and for people to make sure they keep count of their calories.
