Every weekend we have someone new coming through our door. We've had people from Hong Kong, Korea, Australia, England, Ireland and Germany.

The restaurant is also a favorite of competitive eating groups like The United Eaters of Pennsylvania. "Denny's is sort of our Mecca," said member Dave Schoffner. "We come here every year."

When asked how many calories the world's biggest hamburger contained, Mr. Liegey said he had no idea.

Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub has been making supersized hamburgers since 1977. The small restaurant and bar is located in Clearfield, Pennsylvania and has an international following. Owner Denny Liegey is shown here with a freshly prepared “Ye Olde 96er,” a 6-pound burger with a generous 5 pounds of toppings.

The restaurant has gradually expanded the size of its burgers to maintain the world record for the biggest hamburger. The current record is a 123-pound hamburger.

Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub offers a number of challenges in which customers attempt to consume burgers within a specified time frame. A 115-pound college student, Kate Stelnick of Princeton, New Jersey, was the first person to successfully finish a “Ye Olde 96er” within the three-hour time limit.
