Restaurant Celebrates First Anniversary With A 100-Pound Burger

How do you celebrate a restaurant’s first anniversary? Well if you’re Dirigo’s Public House in Yarmouth, Maine, you think really, REALLY big. The owners decided to cook up a 100-pound burger. The patty itself ended up being 70-pounds, but the lettuce, ketchup, and bun brought the mega dish to the 100-pound mark.

For $15, very hungry customers could chow down on the burger. What’s more, part of the proceeds were donated to the Good Shepherd Food Bank, which is right down the street from the Dirigo’s. “It all starts as a joke,” co-owner Ben Grant explains of the huge burger. “Everybody is like, ‘haha, the burgers are really good, you should go bigger.’ It seemed inappropriate, especially pairing with our neighbors from down the street, to do something that is as excessive as this without some sort of community give-back.” Oh, and customers that brought in canned goods for Good Shepherd got $5 toward any additional food or drink purchase.

The event was a success, and now Dirigo’s owners say the massive burger might become a yearly tradition.
