who has the biggest burger in manhattan?
i saw an article that denny's put out a 10 1/2 lb. mama. and another place in new jersey has a 12 lb number.

does anything rival that in the city?

    Djerdan Burek
    221 West 38th Street, Manhattan; (212) 921-1183.

      The Sumo Burger at Big Nick's on 77th and Broadway weighs in at one pound.

        Yes, indeed. It also has the added benefit of being delicious.

          "Jackson Hole" makes big burgers. My favorite burger is the one they make at "44 x 10". It's big and grilled to perfection.

              If you're asking about 44 & 10, it gets its name from its location: on 10th Av. & 44th St.

              Btw, I have no idea how much the burger at Molly's (3rd Av., b/t 22nd & 23rd Sts.) weighs, but I view it as being in the very large category, and it's excellent.

                I second Molly's.

            It's not Denny's place with the yellow sign it's a place called Dennys Dinner in PA.

              In a word, no. For a large burger that will satisfy most appetites you could try McHale's.

                I'll second McHale's. you can easily split this thing... or go for the whole thing, just don't plan moving much for a couple hours after.

                  Third McHale's. The burger is big enough to share, but only if you get the cheese and bacon, and you finish all of your fries.

                  You beat me to it! I second the Silver Spurs burger, it's massive and yummy. I had a huge burger at Cafeteria as well.
