The owner of a Kettering restaurant believes they have the UK’s biggest burger challenge - weighing in at a whopping 9lb.

Billionaires in Sheep Street has gone viral after creating “The Ultimate”, a mound of calorific meat and cheese.

Dave Chandler was defeated by the challenge on Saturday.

Sandwiched between two bun halves are 10 8oz 90 per cent steak patties, 10 bacon rashers, mac and cheese, smoked pulled pork and 500g of sliced smoked cheese.

It comes with fries, coleslaw, onions, a pint of pouring cheese sauce and a pint of frozen yoghurt milkshake for good measure.

Diners have 40 minutes to finish the lot and if they do it’s free and they get their name on the wall of fame. If they can’t, it costs £49.95.

David Chandler was the first to give the challenge a go on Saturday (March 23) but failed, managing to eat about three quarters of it.

Billionaires owners Drew Wilcox said: “I would have thought it is the biggest burger in the UK.

“But someone will finish it at some point, 100 per cent.”

A video of the burger went viral after being published by LADbible on Facebook, attracting more than 1,000,000 views.

The food challenges don’t end there with the restaurant about to launch a hot wing challenge serving what they believe are the hottest chicken wings in the country.

They’re also planning a challenge involving frozen yoghurt in the future.

Drew said: “I just want to bring a bit of fun to Kettering.”

Since this article was published another Kettering restaurant has said they are offering an even bigger burger.

Mu Mu in Rockingham Road say they launched the ‘1m Burger Challenge’ in August 2016.

As the name suggests the burger is 1m high and has 128oz of meat - 18 patties and 36 rashers of smoked streaky bacon - as well as 10 onion rings, 18 slices of cheese, Mu Mu burger sauce and salad.

It costs £39 and you have 60 minutes to complete it. It must be pre-booked in advance.
