9. The Vortex Bar & Grill (Atlanta, GA)

The first step in taking your burger to the next level? Serve a 1.5 lb patty and replace the buns with two grilled cheese sandwiches. Pile on three fried eggs, four slices of cheese, and five slices of bacon and you have the “Double Bypass Burger” at the Vortex Bar&Grill in Atlanta. Leave room for the side of tater tots. Leave time for the bathroom.

8. Country Pancake House (Ridgewood, NJ)

There are over 120 kinds of pancakes at the Country Pancake House in Ridgewood, NJ – all supersized. Even the medium is 8 inches wide and four to an order. Once you’ve added toppings, you’ve got a five pound, 2500 calorie plate. You've also got an obesity problem.

7. Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub (Clearfield, PA)

The Ye Olde 96er at Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub costs $24 and weighs nine pounds. It consists of six pounds of meat, two tomatoes, half a head of lettuce, twelve slices of cheese, a cup of peppers, two onions and a “river of mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard”. Also an ocean of regret after you eat it.

6. Big Texan Steak Ranch (Amarillo, TX)

Big appetites come from Texas like at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo where you’ll find the 72-ounce steak. In case you can’t convert fast enough, that’s four and a half pounds of meat. It’s a $50 meal, unless you finish it (and the side items: a salad, shrimp cocktail, roll, and potato) in an hour or less.

5. Jack-n-Grill (Denver, CO)

Jack-n-Grill serves up a 7 pound breakfast burrito filled with a dozen eggs and 15 ounces of chili. Jack’s a real ladies man. Any woman who can finish the 7-pound burrito in one sitting, eats free at Jack-n-Grill for the rest of her life. She probably also has a severe intestinal problem.

4. Ben and Jerry’s (Vermont)

The Vermonster is an ice cream monster. Even though it’s designed to feed four people, the contents is above and beyond regular dessert sizes. Inside the bucket you’ll find twenty scoops of ice cream, four ladles of hot fudge, whipped cream, three cookies and four toppings of your choice. Anytime something is served in bucket, that's a red flag.

3. R. U. Hungry (New Brunswick, NJ)

An insane sandwich invented by a high college student at a sandwich stand in New Jersey is a consistent winner for sandwich of the year. Their fat sandwiches are served all night, but the Fat Darrell is the most disgusting, er, popular. It’s got everything but the kitchen sink wrapped in a bun – chicken fingers, mozzerella sticks, marinara sauce, French fries, ketchup, and hamburgers.

2. The ChipShop (Brooklyn, NY)

Everything is fried in this crispy wonderland. Literally everything. Located in Brooklyn NY you can eat fried hard boiled eggs, fried pudding, fried mac and cheese, fried candy bars, and the big sell – fried Twinkies. Those will run you 780 calories and 28 grams in fat in just one.

1. Heart Attack Grill (Chandler, AZ)

The Heart Attack Grill makes no bones about what they are serving you by naming it’s burgers after cardiology procedures. The waitresses are dressed as nurses and the motto is “taste worth dying for”. They cook everything in lard and serve flatliner fries. You know what you’re getting into when you order the Quadruple Bypass Burger – 2 pounds of lard soaked beef. It’s 8,000 calories. You better hope those are real nurses if you take this on.
