Major fast food chains are finding new ways to shave calories off their menu items, but one burger flipping franchise is going in the other direction. Jake's Wayback has made a towering burger with nine—count em, nine—patties, a permanent menu item.

The east coast chain, which is currently expanding to 14 states across the country, has decided to put the Triple Triple on their menu after receiving over 100 orders during a test-month last year.

The nine-patty Triple Triple—the tallest burger you can get at a major fast food restaurant—was originally offered as a limited-edition novelty item. A challenge for competitive eaters with a craving for cow, the company got a bigger response than they expected. “It’s crazy. We had one guy eat it in less than two minutes,” Gillian Maffeo, director of marketing for parent Jake’s Franchising LLC, told Burger Business.

This week the company announced that the Triple Triple was here to stay. As of March 1, it will be the priciest burger on their menu at $12.99 a pop. So just how many calories are packed in a burger with nine patties?

A cheeseburger is listed at 570 calories, on the chain's website. If you multiply that by 9, you get a whopping 5,130 calories :| with approximately 117 grams of saturated fat. Now subtract about eight sandwich buns, since this stack is mostly meat.

A diet version of the Quadruple Bypass Burger? Sign me up, wouldn't hurt to shave off a pound or three before summer.

Pretty disgusting. I don't see how someone can eat that in one sitting and not be sick/dead afterwards. I've also never heard of this fast-food place before, so I guess I don't have to worry about seeing someone attempt to eat this thing.

I'd have to take a couple of friends along, and a pack of buns.

Split 3 ways ... :s

FWIW, $12.99 for 9 patties is a pretty damn good deal. :laugh:

Roughly equal to 4 double cheeseburgers? Easy mode.

Just not very healthy.

Even if you add fries and drinks it comes out cheaper than 3 double burger meals

Holy crap! Didn't know there was one in my town, see you all later!!
