Niel heard about the Cliton Station diner in New Jersey. Their claim to fame is they serve enormous burgers. He had wanted to go last Thanksgiving but we never got around to it. Luckily this year we managed to get our acts together somewhat and a few of us went. They have burgers in various sizes from the cute nanos to the 50 lb burger. Of course since its a diner they also have other meal options and a nice bakery. There were articles posted in the front of the restaurant about people who have attempted to eat the various sized larger burgers. I believe one person even ate 60 of the nano burgers in 15 minutes.

Before we left we were weighing various objects on a scale to get a grasp as how big our burgers would be. We were so way off their actual size. The portions were for giants.

Niel and Kelvin ordered the 2 pound burger, I got the 1 pounder, Mike got the 5 pounder and Shawnda got the Nano burger which are adorable mini burgers accompanied by waffle fries. I really should have ordered that.

A little girl even came by after she saw the size of the burgers to take a picture.

Mike ate half of his burger which Niel named Dougie(we name everything), Niel and I finished the meat but not the bread. Kelvin finished half of his burger too. Shawnda was able to finish her meal, Erin ordered waffle fries and Anthony ordered an omelet. They were able to finish their meals. Heh heh. Pictures here.

Oh my lord!! I don't think I like burgers *that* much. Yikes. Matt laments that we have moved away from the part of the country where they have Crystal and White Castle. He loves a dozen little burgers.

Tell me about it. LOL. Yeah we're fans of White Castle. I like their mozzerealla sticks and chicken rings. Crystal? What is a Crystal?

Hannah said...

Wow! That's huge!!!

We have a Krystal too. It's like White Castle, but they are famous for having tiny burgers and you buy a bunch at once.

Hmm so Krystal's is similiar to White Castle Hannah.

It was more like a 3lb burger Mike with all the fixings.

Niel and I only at the meat and cheese Yvett.

The picture does not do it justice Jessica. Man another fast food joint to try.
