15 Burgers That Will Make You Say "What The Actual Fuck"


Posted on

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.


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!


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.



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.


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.
