The World's Biggest Burgers originally published on the Menuism Burger Blog.

Mr. Lew is a high school teacher from Montreal, Quebec. In 2009, after trying Montreal's supposed best burger, he decided to see what else was out there. So, every week, a new burger was added to the Great Burger Search. Since then, Mr. Lew has tried more than 100 burgers in cities across Canada, and hopes to one day expand to the rest of North America. Since Mr. Lew is part Chinese, the search isn't limited only to great burgers, but to other types of cuisine that makes Montreal one of the greatest culinary cities in the world.

Weighing in at 78.5 pounds, Big Bob's Texas Belt Buster was American Bob Schindler's contribution to the Thailand burger scene in 2007. The burger itself contains two heads of lettuce, 15 tomatoes, four whole onions, 35 slices of cheese, 1 cup of ketchup, 1 cup of mustard, four pickles, and four jalapeños. Priced at $400, this burger eclipsed the previous record by over 25 pounds and fired the first international salvo in the race to create bigger burgers.
