Clearfield, PA (AHN) - A US restaurant has beaten its own record for the bragging rights of having the world's biggest burger, with a mouth watering 15-pounder.

Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, had already claimed the title of world’s biggest burger with a 6lb burger.

However the pub’s owners had other ideas and believed a 15-pound burger would prove an even bigger attraction.

Dennis Liegey III, son of the restaurant's owner says, "Every restaurant needs a gimmick - ours is big burgers.”

Customers who can finish the burger in less than five hours win a cash prize, a T-shirt and have their name posted on the pub's wall of fame. Not to mention the burger is free.

The new 15lb burger, nicknamed the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, is almost as big as a car tire.

It’s served with a cup and half each of mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup, a head of lettuce, two onions, three tomatoes and 25 slices of cheese.
