Three Burger Contests and Menu Challenges in Westchester
First, call your cardiologist. Then, step up to the plate at BGR The Burger Joint, Elevation Burger and Westchester Burger Company to gobble down these monster burgers. We dare you.
The Entourage at Westchester Burger Company is a 10-ounce patty tucked between two grilled-cheese sandwiches. Really.
The 9 Pounder at BGR The Burger Joint
Made notorious on the Travel Channel, the Food Network, and in an official, IFOC (International Federation of Competitive Eating) eating contest, this burger, including bun and condiments, weighs 15.4 pounds. The burger includes a nine-pound patty, two complete heads of lettuce, eight tomatoes, three red onions, and four whole pickles. It arrives with a bottle of Maalox, and, if one person can eat it in one sitting in under two hours, it’s free of charge. (Requires 24 hours’ notice.)

The 10-Patty Vertigo Burger at Elevation Burger
Perfect for those burger lovers who like a bit of a wager, the Vertigo can hold from three to 10 patties. A word of warning: You might need jaw surgery to attempt a bite of the 10-patty Vertigo.

The Entourage at Westchester Burger Company
It’s almost more Internet phenomenon than food. Westchester Burger Company’s Entourage comprises two whole grilled-cheese sandwiches, each made with butter-soaked Texas toast. Between them rests a 10-ounce beef patty. Look for the Entourage in the hands of your mugging Facebook friends today.
