Mallie’s Sports Grill & Bar in Southgate has now put the Guinness World record breaker 1,793 pounds burger on its menu for around $8,000. But the restaurant requires three days notice.
Steve Mallie, the owner, was crowned burger king in 2008 by Guinness. He built the Largest Commercially Sold Burger, weighing 138 pounds.
He later lost that title, held until Monday by Juicys Outlaw Grill restaurant in Oregon, which built a 777-pound burger, according to the Detroit Free Press.
A special oven, which took them a month and a half, was built for the purpose.
- The bun alone is 250 pounds.
- It’s topped off with 300 pounds of cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles and onions.
- The burger is 3 feet tall and 5 feet wide.
- About 1,700 pounds of meat in the burger took 16 and a half hours to cook.
Steve has dedicated the world record to his late wife Renee and to their daughters as a birthday gift.
“It’s a lifetime memory for them. How many kids get a nearly 1,800 pound burger on their birthday?”
The owner says none of the food goes to waste and will be donated to local shelters.
