So my friend took her mom out for a birthday dinner last night, and they got a 17-pound hamburger with a side order of A BUCKET OF BACON.

Brian, I'm looking at you. The gauntlet has been thrown, good sir.

Gauntlet? Shee-it! Who do you think gave them the idea??? They had to downsize from the barrel of bacon I'd recommended. :pirate:

That certainly is quite a feat! How much of the beast did you manage to make disappear?

As an update, my friends went again tonight. Here are more pictures from the last trip, and HERE is the menu. Fucking delish. And the half beers don't look bad either.

In the lower right of that last picture, you can see what's left of the bucket of bacon, which comes with maple syrup to dip.

They've got other stuff on the menu, but I don't see it online. Here's a burger review of the place, which shows some of their other stuff, like the Octane Wings, mini corn dogs, fried crispy dill chips, four cheese mac-n-cheese, and some of the sauces.

Is that a thimble of green chili? Not very much for a burger that size. :twitchsmile:

When I lived in Detroit, we used to go to this place in Windsor, right across the river (5 minutes, pre-9/11, /weep) for amazing food, massive drinks (you'd order your L.I. Tea's by sizes- M, L, XXL), and their wonderful attitude towards all things garlic.

They also had... The Big Bunda V8 Burger. and the obligatory contest for eating it, alone. Solo. No helpers.

We watched a kid try it once. Was a runty 145lb kid, too. I swear, he didn't get 10% into it.

A picture, sorta, of the burger. The tallest man in Canda tried to eat it. All 7'9", 550lbs of him was defeated.

Aother tidbit I found while trying to find a picture, is that Bubi's offers the highest single price for any 'eating feat' by a restaurant. $1000... and a t-shirt (of course. You also, like they did with their last two biggest burgers, allow you to name the next one, which, if this one is ever eaten, will be 10lb.

That'd be some serious groceries. I struggle with a Triple at Wendy's.

Some of those folks can slam some food. :worshippy:

I'd rather watch it on the travel channel or food network. I'm just a meat and potato kinda guy.
Add gravy and, well, it gets ugly(er). ;)
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Me too! If I ever have pancakes, most of my syrup goes on the bacon or sausage.
