    We asked the BuzzFeed Community for the most insane burger they've ever eaten in America, plus added in a couple of our own. Here are some deliciously over-the-top burgers that belong on your ~required eating~ bucket list.

    1. The Early Riser, The Porch — Winter Park, Florida

    First off, it's a bison burger on a goddamn fresh-glazed donut. Then there's also cheddar, house hash cake, applewood smoked bacon, a fried egg, onion rings, and liquid gold bbq sauce. That's not even including the lettuce, tomato, and raw onion they put on the side — because even the chefs are too scared to keep adding layers to this glorious monstrosity.

    2. The Thurmanator, Thurman Cafe — Columbus, Ohio

    The layers are as follows: bottom bun, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickle, banana peppers, a12-ounce burger, bacon, cheddar, another 12 ounce burger, sautéed mushrooms and onions, ham, mozzarella and American cheese, and a top bun. Then it's served with fries and a pickle spear.


    3. Badass Burger, Bad Daddy's Burger Bar — multiple locations

    It's got buttermilk fried bacon, which trumps everything.

    4. The Breakroom Burger, Breakroom Burgers & Tacos — New York City

    You can order this thing regular or "doubled up" (the one above is doubled up). That means it has two beef patties, crispy pork belly, fried onion halves, runny egg, jalapeños, American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles. What what!

    5. The Nutter Butter Burger, Lucky 13 — Salt Lake City

    House smoked bacon, peanut butter, cheddar cheese. Don’t forget the side of rosemary garlic fries! Soooo much garlic.


    6. The Killer Bee, Boston Burger Company — Boston

    This insane stack is loaded with beer-battered onion rings, bacon, American cheese, and honey barbecue sauce. What the actual fuck.

    7. Avenue Burger, Barrelhouse 101 — Ventura, California

    Ooh boy, here we go. This baby's got a blend of chorizo and beef, plus grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, a fried egg, guacamole, cheddar & Jack cheese, and then a spicy three-pepper aioli, all served on a brioche bun.


    8. The OMG Burger Platter, River City Cafe — Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

    Get ready for this one: The OMG burger platter has two patties topped with hickory-smoked bacon, Swiss and cheddar, heaps of mayo, lettuce, tomato and fried onion strings, and then — wait for it — two fried egg & cheese sandwiches. The whole thing's then served with a pile of fries, two giant fried onion rings, and slaw. Boom.


    9. The Gordo Burger, La Perrada Del Gordo — West Palm Beach, Florida

    This burger is Colombian fast food in Florida — and it's basically all about the sauce. It has a meat patty, shredded chicken, fries, pink sauce and pineapple sauce, and a whole bunch of melted cheese.


    10. The Adam Emmenecker, Jethro's BBQ — Des Moines, Iowa

    It weighs five pounds, including the cheeseburger, two buns, pork tenderloin, buffalo chicken tenders, white cheddar sauce, fried cheese curds, Texas brisket, applewood smoked bacon, and a spicy pickle. If you can eat all of that plus a pound of waffle fries in 15 minutes, it’s free and you get your photo on the wall.


    11. Apocalypse Burger, Nosh Kitchen Bar — Portland, Maine

    It's got a hamburger patty, American cheese, pork belly, bacon, foie gras paté, mayo, and cherry jam on a grilled brioche bun. Huge.


    12. Walking Ched, Zombie Burger — Des Moines and West Des Moines, Iowa

    Mac 'n' cheese or bust. This burger has, in addition to the actual meat, a breaded and deep fried mac 'n' cheese bun, bacon, Cheddar cheese, caramelized and raw onion, mayo, and then actual mac 'n' cheese. Because a fried mac 'n' cheese bun just isn't enough.


    13. The Bomb Burger, Tampa Bay Brewing Company — Tampa, Florida

    It's a burger with all the fixings, then wrapped in pizza dough and baked.


    14. 2 Finger Peekaboo, Lindy's on 4th — Tucson, Arizona

    A grilled cheese sandwich with a burger in the middle, plus all the fixings—and so much more.


    15. The Hot Mess, Grill Marks, Greenville, South Carolina

    It has two beef patties, a grilled hot dog, chili, cheddar, Swiss, American, applewood smoked bacon, onion straws, fried pickle, lettuce, and tomatoes. Their burgers are so amazing.


    So, who's hungry for a stack of meaty deliciousness?!?!
