Unique Burger Joint In Illinois

I have discovered a unique burger joint in Elgin. It's called Gabutto Burger, burgers with Japanese twists.

According to gabuttoburger.com, 

Gabutto Burger is a locally owned Japanese-styled fast food restaurant.


We have unique patties, sauces, and flavors to match our innovative environment and diverse food selection.


Besides the tasty and different types of menu items, Gabutto Burger also features a 6.5-pound Samurai Burger Challenge.

What Is The Samurai Burger Challenge At Gabutto Burger?

According to onlyinyourstate.com,

In the tiny town of Elgin, Illinois, hides an enormous, 6.5-pound, 1.5-foot-tall, 12,000-calorie burger with four hamburger patties, two shrimp patties, two chicken patties, four fried eggs, several layers of bacon, plus lettuce, onions, tomatoes, cheese, multiple sauces, and buns and other breads interspersed throughout.

It’s all held together with a Samurai sword, and it’s easily the most epic burger in Illinois.
