Hold the fries, PLEASE


If you're headed for the Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Mashantucket, CT, you may want to consider walking part way just to build up an appetite.

Fuddruckers restaurant at Foxwoods holds the Guinness Book of World Records title for largest hamburger, a 29.5-pound behemoth. (Guinness reps are seen weighing the monster in the accompanying photo.)

However, that title may be shortlived. The 50-pound Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser (pictured below) from Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, PA, has its claim pending. Denny's has held the title before and is obviously serious about getting it back.



A FOOTNOTE: Since this original posting above, one more gigundoburger has weighed in. See it here, then check out the details in the "comments" section below.

Holding their breath. The hopes of Denny's Pub getting the record back was smashed when a Thai eatery Bob's BBQ & Grill in Thailand smoked the record with a 78.5 lb Hamburger. It will be officially entered into the Guinness Records as The World's Largest Commercially Available Hamburger. I have been a fan of the big burger wars and enjoy seeing the places compete, but I have to say the latest Denny's burger is awful looking and I have my own doubts if it would even qualify for the record as it has no bottom bun and mulitple meat patties. The Big Bob's Texas Belt Buster ready in just 12 hours for $400.00 www.bobs-bbq.com I found this information at Slashfood at http://www.slashfood.com/2006/08/14/thai-eatery-grills-up-worlds-biggest-burger/

Right you are. This popped up after my original posting. I've added a picture of the new monster to the original posting.
