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

They must put the burger in some sort of box -- it would surely fall over as is.

Given the amount of meat I'm surprised they don't just cook the cow whole and stick a bun around it.

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.

That's a guaranteed heart attack for sure. No thank you.
