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."
