World's Largest Burger Among New Record-Setting Foods

It's a tale that'll go down in burger history. At an event this week in London, Guinness World Records revealed a host of new record breakers, among them a 185-pound, $499 whopper of a hamburger, which is officially the world's largest. The record belongs to Mallie's Sports Grill and Bar in Southgate, MI. Owner Steve Mallie, who said the bun must be baked for eight hours and the burger for 15 hours, remarked, "Being in the book is the greatest accomplishment we've ever done. I've worked my entire life to build this restaurant and being able to have the notoriety of Guinness makes it just that bit more rewarding."

It seems, in today's world, that everything bigger is better. This week alone, Westhoughton, UK, garnered attention for serving the world's most massive English breakfast (10 sausages,10 rashers of bacon, 10 slices of toast, 10 eggs, fives slices of black pudding, and tomatoes, mushrooms, and black beans); Sacramento, CA, made headlines for a 42-foot-long, 1,200-pound tamale; and Valencians in Spain managed to assemble the world's longest restaurant table. At this rate, the next record will need to be for the world's most capable scale. Are these feats, like the Mallie's burger, legendary stuff, or simply gross?

Yeah. The weird squid ink bun does not look very appetizing to me either.

darc, i agree. It would be a cool end to a fun story if they donated it to a homeless shelter. Though it doesn't look appetizing, i'll bet people would get a kick out of eating a guiness record burger.

I think it's kind of fun as long as the results are distributed and consumed. If they make it and waste it, I would find that really upsetting.

I know -- I told Party I thought the meat looked gross! Apparently, there is such a thing as too much meat.

This Burger is 74 pounds short of a record...I was part of a team that ate 70 pounds of a 259 lb Hamburger at the Clinton Station Diner in NJ 2 Years ago.....looks like Guinness missed the Big One! Check out the link for a Picture of the Spartan Burger!!

I don't know how I feel about that meat-to-cheese ratio. At least they didn't have the balls to call it a "cheeseburger."

They're kind of cool-looking, but it's not something that you'd actually want to eat. Definitely not very appetizing!
