The 7 Patty Burger? Diner Chain Flips Off Nutritionists With Greasy Monstrosity

Steak n’ Shake just dropped what it hopes will be the ace of spades of novelty fast food items.  


The diner chain’s new 7 x 7 Steakburger stacks seven patties of burnt, beefy gunk alternated with seven slices of processed American “cheese,” all stuffed between two oily buns. Rounding out the numerical congruity, Steak n’ Shake’s towering burger will cost customers a precious $7.77. The producers of Sesame Street would be proud.

Steak n’ Shake’s middle finger to nutritionists everywhere will infuse its consumers with 1,330 calories, more than half the FDA’s recommended daily intake. The 7 x 7 contains more than double the calories of famed fast food burgers, including McDonald’s Big Mac and Burger King’s Whopper.

In addition, BurgerBusiness reports the septuple Steakburger contains 98 grams of fat, 290 mg of cholesterol, 34 grams of carbohydrates and a terrifying 4,490 mg of sodium. The FDA recommends the average American consume less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium a day.

Steak n’ Shake’s tower of salty, fatty cow parts headlines its brand new AllNighter Menu, available for your consumption between the hours of midnight and 6 AM. As BurgerBusiness reports, the move is likely a response to competitive pressure from other chains like Denny’s and McDonalds who’ve also introduced nighthawk menus.

Steak n’ Shake unveils its monster burger just after the United States once again topped the most obese nations list and Las Vegas’ Heart Attack Grill’s most famous patron died of a heart attack.
