9. 12 Wheeler Burger – Garage 88
This monstrosity can intimidate even the most daring of men, boasting an impressive 12-inch width. Made with a thick beef patty, chili con carne, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese sauce, pickles, and onion rings, this burger means business. It’s massive enough to feed a hungry pack of eight to ten wolves err people, but the only way to share it is to cut through its layers and give each one a slice!
8. Triple-X – Big Better Burgers
For most mortals, it will be impossible to open your mouth wide enough for this burger. Try as you might, there’s no fitting all three of its thick burger patties in one bite, including the lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, and three kinds of cheeses in there also. But no matter what method you use to conquer this thing, you’ll end up with a big gut and an even bigger desire to work out the next day.
Big Better Burgers can be found at G/F The Fort Strip, Katipunan Circle, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila.
7. The Mighty Ton – Casa Verde
This burger might not actually weigh a ton but it definitely shouldn’t be taken lightly. To prepare it in all its immensity, a kilogram of USDA tenderloin patty is sandwiched in between 12-inch buns. A whopping 125 grams of bacon along with a generous helping of lettuce, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, and cheese is then added in for even more drama. And as if that isn’t enough, you get plenty of fries on the side too!
6. The Tombstone – Zark’s Burgers
This burger is a heart attack waiting to happen, as suggested by its morbid name. Before consumption, you might want to read the warning on the menu saying it could potentially kill you on the spot. We do hope they’re kidding though because it’s an irresistible two-pound stack of beef patties smothered in cheese sauce, complete with 300 grams of fries on the side! If you think you’re at the peak of physical health, take the risk and live to tell the tale.
5. Triple Death Burger – Fat Daddy’s Smokehouse
It’s hard to tell whether this burger is a work of art or a weapon of mass destruction. On one hand, it’s a sight to behold with its towering physique and well-planned out structure. On the other, it’s got the ability to put us in a food coma if we don’t watch out. This double quarter pounder has got everything that will ruin our diets: smoked bacon, pulled pork, and lots of cheese!
4. Call The Nurse – Burgers and Brewskies
Just the name of the burger itself can make anyone a little nervous, but also strangely excited. Because we all know that if something isn’t good for our health, then it probably tastes really delicious. This one’s got a ⅓ pound U.S. beef patty plus a layer of seared mac n’ cheese in between its buns, all flavored with spiced mustard aioli and cheese sauce. And one more thing, it’s got strips of honey sriracha bacon somewhere in that heaping pile of ooey gooey mess too!
3. The Ridiculous Burger – Burger Avenue
This burger may seem a little excessive but when you’re in a ravenous mood, you’re going to want to thank Burger Avenue for coming up with this ridiculously exorbitant creation. In between its oatmeal buns, you’ll find three juicy beef patties, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, and cheese slices, all for your gorging pleasure. You should consume this on your own to experience it in its full glory.
Burger Avenue can be found on the G/F of The Fort Strip, Katipunan Circle, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila.
2. The Burzilla Burger – Burzillian Nation
With a name that rhymes with Godzilla, we’d be correct in assuming that this burger takes after the King of the Monsters’ enormity. It’s made up of layers of bacon, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, beef patties, potato strings, and cheese, held together by two huge buns , and then topped off with a glistening sunny side up egg. To hold all of its contents in place, a giant knife is pierced right through its center, making for quite a display of badassery.
1. Executioner – The Burgery
This one’s under the Bad Boy Burgers category of The Burgery’s menu for a reason. An order of this bad boy and you get three ⅓ pound pure beef patties layered alternately with bacon, onions, romaine, tomatoes, and cheese, all drizzled with the special Burgery sauce. Successfully finishing an entire Executioner may mean falling into a deep post-burger sleep but at least you go out happy!
