    This is where I ate last night. I went for the 3# burger.

    I ate 2/3 the burger and almost all of the condiments.

    The rules:
    1.5 hour limit, no sharing, no silverware, no crying like a baby.

    I think that I might be able to complete the "The Pub Challenger." You should return and try that one. Then you could take a picture and show us what the certificate and T-Shirt look like! :cool:

    I haven't polished off one of those huge burgers, but I did win a "I Made a Pig of Myself" ribbon for finishing the "Pig Trough" at Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour all by myself. The Pig Trough has 8 scoops of ice cream with 8 toppings. It was my birthday party and I didn't eat for days afterwards!

    Damn I wish we had a place like that where I live. When I eat hamburgers, I usually make 2 1/2 lb patty's per burger, and I have 2 burgers on average. I like to eat.

    There are pictures on me with the 3#er. My wife bought a t-shirt for my son. I'll try and get them posted.

    i fancy my chances, where is it???? hmmm....about a 5 - 6 hour drive from NYC, bah.


    i think Mr. Anderson, eyelikeart and MoxieMike can attest to my eating abilities, not half bad for a skinny lad. :)

    You can do the trip in 4.5 is you book down 80.

    Get off at the Clearfield Exit. Hang a left. Follow whatever road that is to US 322. Take that west and it is just off on the left. Pretty much right after you get off the road.

    The person who holds the record for eating the 3# fastest and came the closest on the 6 was a 90# woman. As a note. It takes about an hour to cook

    That's 5 pounds of burgers each time you eat burgers at home. That....sounds....like.....a......LIE! Or maybe an exaggeration, unless you're [euphemism]"a very large man"[/euphemism]

    I think he mean 2 half pound patties on each burger and 2 burgers. A total of 2 pounds of meat.

    The meat bun and cheese wouldn't have been a problem but there was a salad on the burger swimming in mustard and mayo.

    2 tomatoes, half a head of lettuce 1/2 cup of hot peppers.

    I lost my will to eat when I hit the bottom bun and saw it covered in pickle relish.

    I remember when I was living down south for a little while and I enjoyed going to Fuddruckers Hamburger restaurant.
    Good burgers. Cooked to order.
    Unfortunately, they don't have them up here in the north. Surprisingly.

    definitely saw a segment about it on the food network on their top 10 pig out episode. the burger just looks incredible (not just big, but it looks quite tasty!). if i'm ever in the area, i think i will need to give it a shot.

    congrats on making it as far as you did, and i'm sure one day you will complete it!

    We have a similar place here in Illinois called R's Place .
    Actually, the food is SPECTACULAR. Everything is homemade, and the place is filled with rare antique toys, even the tables. They have a similar burger for about $17.00, and you get it free.
    If you're in the area, stop at this place. It's worth it.
    That said, I DON'T work for them.

    If that is the 3 pounder, then I'm sure that it's more than I could handle! :eek:

    My own post about my own historical achievement made me hungry, so I drove from Los Angeles to San Diego yesterday, went to the Farrell's there, and ate a Hot Fudge Sundae. Yes, I'm telling the truth! (Except that I omitted one tiny detail: I had other reasons to go to San Diego, to visit a friend and to go to a Matchbox Twenty concert.)

    Here's a photo taken yesterday to prove I was foolish enough to let you guys talk me into eating naughty treats:

    I'm 155 lbs, and I could down that 3 lbs burger.

    Chinese people are deceivingly skinny. Most are just fat guys trapped in skinny bodies. ;)

    Has anyone ever eaten the 6lb. one? :eek: It says 9lb., but I'm guessing that's before cooking. :confused: :eek:

    Where does it say 9 lbs? Anyway, all weights are measured pre-cooked, so a 6 lbs burger referrs to the weight before it was cooked. It always has and it always will. A quarter pounder weighs less than a quarter pound when you eat it.
