    A restaurant in Hollywood, Florida, Quickie's Burgers and Wings, has a 4-pounder that made it into the newspaper today.

    A local burger-blogger, Burger Beast, has accepted the publicized challenge to eat it in one hour.

    Here's the story.

    So it finally happened.  The 16 month old record for eating the 3lb Triple Undisputed Burger aka the 911 the fastest was broken today.

    Old record was 48 mins.  New record 38 mins.  I wonder how long this record will stand?

    Gus,

    My question is:
    If someone devours a 3 pound burger with 9 slices of cheese in less than 38 minutes, how long will they be able to stand?

    Your name came up Sunday. You need to partner with a cardiologist at Rush Presbyterian or Northwestern. They can keep their business cards @ your place, just in case.

    lol...you are the second person that suggested this.  The other one was to hand out the dr.'s biz card along with the burger.

    That's a little faster then a pound every 10 mins.  Doesn't seem to hard to do that.  I did get a call from a  Pro Competitive eater that was interested so the time might fall even more.

    There is a new challenger to the 3lb Triple Undisputed.  His name is Bergg out of Milwaukee.

    It is taking place Jan 16th, a Saturday, at 1 pm if anyone wants to witness it.

    Here is a pic of Bergg in front of what looks like a 4.5lb burger

    Congrats to Zach.  He came down from Milwaukee to attempt this.  He did break the record, eating the 3lb burger in 13 mins 50 sec. There are some pics on his website Bergg vs Food Yes, he is a big Man V Food fan.  They are gonna put up a vid as well.

    On a side note, Dan, who set the record just 3 days prior, will be dropping back in on the 27th to try and reclaim the record
