All hail Penn grad student Lisel Parillon, who Friday night finished a triple crown of taco-eating.

On Aug. 20, she ate 33 tacos in 12.5 minutes at  Drinker's West. 

Three days later, she completed the challenge at Drinker's Pub in 13 minutes.

Aug. 26, she ate her last round of 33 tacos in nine minutes, becoming the first Drinker's Triple Crown winner. Her prize: Free drinks for a year.

Drinker's sells tacos for a buck.
