Your vote for the most over-the-top gluttonous burger?

NO. 1: The Carl's Jr. DOUBLE SIX DOLLAR BURGER.
2 paties, 3 slices of cheese and all the fixins and coming in at a whopping 1500+ calories (with over 100 grams of fat)! Plus, it's really tasty; the Angus beef paties are really well prepared. Calories well-spent.
RUNNER-UP: The Burger King Quad Stacker
I think a close runner-up has to be the Burger King Quad Stacker with 4 patties, 4 slices of cheese and 8 strips of bacon and it doesn't even pretend to be anything but an orgy of fat and cholesterol as it comes with not a shred of lettuce, tomato or any other veggies to speak of. Problem is, this burger is a bit too tall and not wide enough. Hard to eat, almost need a fork and knife, and for fast food, that's not ideal.
No Carls Jrs here on the East Coast, so I'd have to go with the Hardees Monster Thickburger. Actually, quite tasty for a chain burger. Decent texture, good flavor, and a mere 1,420 calories.
And the BK Triple Whopper trounces the Quad Stacker with 1,230 calories to 1,000, respectively. And the Triple boasts a 160% of your daily saturated fat. Easier to eat too (flatter than the Stacker).
