The World's Biggest Hamburger

Southgate Michigan's own Steve Mallie of Mallie's Sports Bar on Northline and Allen has made the world's biggest hamburger. Video of the burger is here.

It is 185.6 pounds and is in the Guinness Book of World Records. It was announced in London in at an event promoting the new Guinness Book edition.

It's called the Absolutely Ridiculous Burger, and it is on the menu for just $2000. (The online menu has it at its old humble 150 lb size -- also a Guinness record in the past.) You need to preorder by 30 days, and pay in advance. If you and 29 of your closest friends can eat it in less than 1 hour its FREE! Also available for HOME DELIVERY.

The hamburger bakes for 15 hours before adding the condiments of cheese, lettuce and tomato. The bun bakes for eight hours. I wonder how he made the bun stiff enough to hold a 182 pound hamburger up.

I always thought this restaurant was called O'Mallies, because there is a big "O" on the sign in front.  I have never been to Mallie's, but maybe for the next blacked out NFL game . . .
