The World's Largest Burger Just Went On Sale
Burger King had better watch its back. One Steve Mallie just got the world record for largest commercially available burger, and we think that more than warrants him the title…
His cheeseburger, weighing in at a staggering 1,749 pounds, will set you back $7,799. It’s 3ft tall and 5ft wide, and is loaded with 300 pounds worth of cheese, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and lettuce.
Steve’s restaurant (Mallie’s Sports Grill, in Detroit) needs you to order it three days in advance…
Here it is, in all its glory:
Any leftover meat from the burger (because let’s be honest, not all that many people will be able to polish that monster off) will be ground up into taco meat, and donated to local shelters.
It’s actually the second time that Steve has won this particular world record. In 2008, he created a 138 pound burger that, at the time, was the largest on the market. He was eventually, however, overtaken by a Japanese restaurant, and has spent the past four years attempting to win the record back.
As Steve explained to WXYZ, he and his children created this burger together, in memory of his late wife (who died from breast cancer).
He also said that it was a birthday present for his daughters: “It’s a lifetime memory for them, I mean how many kids get to get an 1,800 lb. hamburger on their birthday?”
