Illinois Tavern Proves ‘Size Matters’ Serves 8lbs Burger!
It's not the size that matters, it's the...wait, yes it is the size. Thrillist
Let's head to Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap in Chicago. (41 E. Superior Street) for a burger that takes the cake, or takes the hamburger, and so much more!
"Rumor has it that Jake Melnick was terrible at Jenga, which is why he created one huge chunk of meat instead of a multi-pattied cheeseburger." - Thrillist
Makes sense, right? Why try to stack burgers a mile high in the attempt of making a MASSIVE EIGHT POUND BURGER!?! This is 8lbs, one patty and a whole lot of yummy.
Funny thing is, it isn't one of those "hey look what we do," things. When you look up Jake Melnick's Corner Tap they push the fact that they have ice cold beer and great hot wings. That works for me! It's like, oh yah...we also have an eight pound burger.
Simply called the "Eight Pound Monster Burger," SEE IT HERE It is prepared for at least eight people to eat...What is the fun with that? It comes with all the fixings so grab a napkin or twelve and attempt to take it down! No word or a t-shirt, your name on the wall or a trophy for completing this challenge.
In case you were thinking, an eight pounder sounds great but I'd like to take down pounds of carbs ONLY, check out this pretzel from Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap.
For the records their wings look killer too!
