And the burger wars continue! Clinton Station Diner has now made claim to the World's Largest commercially available hamburger, "The 8th Wonder". This 28" wide, 11.5" thick, 105 pound monstrosity was created today at the Clinton Station Diner in Clinton, NJ. With previous massive burgers like the 7lb Zeus burger, and the 50lb Mt Olympus under their belts, it was no surprise that Clinton Station was secretly devising a way to beat the latest winner in the Big Burger Wars, the 78.5lb entry from Bob's BBQ and Grill in Pattaya, Thailand. Looks like they've brought the title back to the USA!


10/29/06 - OMG! 105 Pounds! ARE YOU KIDDING ME??
History was made at the Clinton Station Diner yesterday by setting the new World Record for the Biggest Menu Hamburger in the world appropriately dubbed "The 8th Wonder" (interestingly enough this is also the 8th type of burger offered at Clinton Station Diner). Mere words cannot express the totality and enormity of this massive meat monster. The dimensions on this bad boy measured out to be 28 inches in diameter and 11 1/2 in height and a whopping 105 pounds in total weight.

It has been reported that several competitive eaters broke down in tears of joy as they witnessed the unveiling of this World Record Burger. Owner Mike Zambus s will be submitting necessary documentation to Guinness Book of World Records to certify "The 8th Wonder" as the new World Heavy Weight Burger. Unlike many previous World Record Burgers that were constructed, "The 8th Wonder" is a delicious creation and also maintains the fine tradition of the previous Zambus burgers. Customers had the delicious opportunity to sample this massive burger at the end of the presentation and all were in agreement of the high quality and great taste of The 8th Wonder. Some were lucky enough to take home a slice of this historic event (slices weighed in at 7 pounds-yummy snack!). We were happy that the new Heavy Weight Burger title is back in America and that AICE was privileged to be part of this!
