In the tiny town of Elgin, Illinois, hides an enormous, 6.5-pound, 1.5-foot-tall, 12,000-calorie burger with four hamburger patties, two shrimp patties, two chicken patties, four fried eggs, several layers of bacon, plus lettuce, onions, tomatoes, cheese, multiple sauces, and buns and other breads interspersed throughout. It’s all held together with a Samurai sword, and it’s easily the most epic burger in Illinois.
