CLINTON, N.J. (Circa) — There is a magical place in New Jersey where they serve a 50 lb hamburger. It's called the Mt. Olympus and it costs $202.95 at the Clinton Station Diner in Clinton, NJ, but if you can grab 4 friends and finish it in under 3 hours the diner will pay you $1,000. Yes, that's right. You can make $1,000 for eating a cheeseburger.
It takes 5 hours to make so you can't just come in and order it, best to call ahead. The meat is only 25 pounds and then there is 20 pounds of dough, 5 pounds of cheese, 4 heads of lettuce and onions and tomatoes. Circa sent 6 people to attempt to eat the whole thing after cutting it into pie slices the team managed to eat about 4 pounds of the entire burger.
The diner also has the "8th Wonder of the World." This is a 105 pound burger that costs $411.25 and if 10 people can finish it in under an hour the diner pays you $5000. That's right, $5000.
It's not as easy as it sounds. Check the full Facebook post of the Circa team trying to eat the full 25 lb burger.
