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

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.
So, who's hungry for a stack of meaty deliciousness?!?!
The burger in #6 is the Killer Bee. A previous version said it was the 420 Burger.
