started with a 2-pound burger challenge, working up to its current record of a 123-pound burger. Fame started in earnest in 1996 with the creation of the "Ye Olde 96er" a 6-pound burger with about 5 pounds of toppings. Patrons take the challenge of trying to finish it in the allocated time. College student Kate Stelnick of Princeton, New Jersey, weighing 115 pounds was the first person to successfully finish the 6-pound version, despite attempts by many others including local giant, Justin Dinkfelt, to conquer the monstrous burger.
Soon afterwards the restaurant introduced a bigger burger called the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, a two person challenge. This burger contains "ten and a half pounds of ground beef, 25 slices of cheese, a whole head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, 1.5 cups of mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, mustard, and banana peppers all between one enormous hamburger bun". On October 17, 2008, Brad Sciullo became the first person to eat the burger on his own in under five hours.
