I've been told of a restaurant in Athens with a too-big-to-eat-it hamburger challenge. Can anyone confirm and point me in the right direction?

The only one I know of in Athens is:
Brett's Casual American - Website
3190 Atlanta Highway, Athens, GA 30606
Phone: (706) 850-1395

They have "The Beast" which is a 3 lb burger and apparently is free if finished in under 2 hours...but I'd call to confirm that. If you attempt it be sure to take pictures and report back how you did.

Yeah, thats where it is. Can't think of another around here. There used to be a place called Herbies in downtown Athens. They had "the big mother",half pound meat,mushrooms,suateed onions, chili,lettuce, tomato, melted cheese, bacon, and I'm sure there are some toppings I can't think of.

Okay, that looks good, but it's not the place I saw advertised.

I finally called a couple "hip" places in Athens to try to find the nam of the free magazines available in Athens. Then searched for them online and finally found...The Athens Blur. Read through a couple back-issues on line and found the ad I'd seen. 
It's the Burger & Cheesesteak Factory on Prince next to the Grit. They don't have a website(!) but the reviews I found were either great or horrible. Seems to be no middle ground on this one.
anyway, the ad said they had a 64-oz. burger challenge but it said it was their quarterly eating challenge and, as this was a couple months ago, I don't know if that's current.

I hope to be in Athens in a couple weeks amd, if I make it, I'll get photos.

Of course, now I want to try Brett's too.

Thanks for the tip.
