The Spread Eagle Burger

This is the the Spread Eagle Burger, with a patty made of "13th Street Meat's half smoke grind, Gordy's pickle relish, and a DC Brau battered, french fry bun drizzled in mumbo sauce." My level of saliva has increased 550% after looking at that picture and reading the ingredients.


Mexican Muffin Burger

A toasted English muffin stuffed with seasoned grass fed beef and pork sausage patty, whipped avocado cream, crispy chile ancho rubbed carnitas, purple cabbage slaw and smoky grilled pineapple butter. Get two sunny side up eggs on the side and some fries and you'll have the perfect brunch.


Slow-Roasted Lamb Belly Burger

Slow roasted lamb belly slathered in hot strawberry harissa sauce, balanced by a cool tarragon green goddess, grass-fed beef patty, and a schmear of fresh goat chèvre. All of that inside a toasted brioche bun. I'm literally salivating right now.


The Best Burger On A Stick

Corn dogs? Not a fan. A corn dog-inspired burger-on-a-stick made of "pickled beef frank and a slice of crispy pork belly, sandwiched between two smash-cooked beef patties, dipped in a jalapeño, whole kernel corn batter, fried, and drizzled with honey"?


The Foie-ck A Duck Burger

The Foie-ck A Duck, ladies and gentlemen: "Sous vide duck breast, encrusted in a smattering of peppercorns, smothered in a foie gras cognac cream sauce, and feathered with freshly sliced summer truffle." I'm drooling so much right now—really, actual drool just came out of my mouth. I want this so badly.


The Liquid Diet Burger

A White Castle infused Bulleit Rye patty "stirred with spicy pickle juice, a splash of tomato water, a dash of liquid smoke" that you can suck on with a bacon straw. Now you can have burgers when you go out to dance and drink, and drinks when you go out of for brunch or lunch.


The Bill Murray Burger

It doesn't have anything to do with Bill Murray, but I want to eat it anyway: The patty is "seared on the outside, medium rare on the inside, with a molten core of melted cheese and creamy sous vide egg yolk." I want to get sucked into a Groundhog Day time warp hole and eat this every day for the rest of eternity.


Wabbit Season Burger

A delicious rabbit patty—ground with dried fig and apricot—covered in melted sheep cheese, quick pickled red onion, mesclun salad dressed in a Dijon vinaigrette and stacked with vermouth braised pear. If you've never tried rabbit meat before this is a good way to start, it's wabbit season!!


The Holy Cow

Totalling in at over 2500 calories and costing more than 40 bucks, the Holy Cow burger is basically like sandwiching an entire cow. With 17 different kinds of meat, you can't really go wrong, right?

The burger was sold on Father's Day at Red's True BBQ in Manchester and Leeds UK. What's exactly in the beeftastic burger?

• Carpaccio beef and olive • 21-hour Texas-smoked brisket • Juicy Lucy (melted cheese hidden inside a 100% steak burger) • A Parmesan and Jacob's cracker-crusted pattie made of pulled oxtail and pulled ox cheek with diced slow-smoked ox heart and ox liver • Jalapeño and dill pickle relish • Thickly sliced mustard-pickled tongue • Unholy sticky beef jus • Pulled 12hr smoked beef rib • Blackened Wagyu rib eye steak • Beef bacon • Red's Dirty sauce • Chargrilled red onion ring

All that in a pretzel bun. And lest anyone think they forgot about a drink and fries, the burger will come with "a beef tomato consommé-based Bloody Mary with jerky shards and thrice cooked beef dripping-fried chips with a pulled beef Ragu dipping sauce." Knowing that this exists, there's no other way to celebrate Father's Day.


Burger Pop Tarts

I find pop-tarts really disgusting. But these I Can Haz Pop Tart burgers must be delicious: "a smashed grass-fed beef patty, with a bacon onion jam, melty cheddar cheese, in a buttery pop tart pastry." I just want to wake up every day, open my mouth, and have a conveyor belt pushing six of these down my throat.


The Sookie Monster Burger

The Sookie Monster Burger is the Southern equivalent of the Asian ramen burger: Instead of ramen as buns, it uses pan-fried pimento cheese grits. Inside: "Heirloom tomato, a Louisiana hot link sausage patty, cajun spiced shrimp, smoked jalapeño, and a Sazerac roux."


The Wake-n Bacon Burger

The Wake-n-Bacon Burger tries to solve my weekly brunch dilemma: Sweet or savory? The proposal is interesting: "Sandwiched between two warm and freshly glazed apple fritters, sits a maple bacon-wrapped beef patty, draped with melty cheddar cheese, and drizzled with a caffeinated maple, espresso syrup."


Bao-ser's Castle Burger

Behold the delicious Bao-ser's Castle Burger, a hot steamy bao bun filled with a "square, onion soup-braised (and seared) beef tongue patty, nested with green onion slices, quick pickle cucumber, cilantro, grilled pork belly, and a hoisin mayonnaise." The only way this thing could be more awesome is if someone were stuffing two of them in my mouth right now.

I know that many of you would probably go eeeewwww about the mention of a tongue patty, but it's your loss. I can assure you that it's one of the most delicious and delicate meats you can eat (if you ever have the opportunity to try it, you must.) And you just can't go wrong with the rest of the ingredients. This is definitely one tasty burger.


The Kaleesi Burger

The Kaleesi Burger (*because it's made with kale—get it?) It seems as delicious as the Mother of Dragons: "Smokey morsels of crisped shiitake "bacon," crown a regal beet gratin, smothered in Red Dragon cheese on top of a crunchy, berberre-rubbed kale patty, heirloom tomato, and slathering of sumac aioli."

It doesn't have meat, but it really sounds and looks yummy. I want it.


Cali-corn-ication Burger

There are no words to express the lust and gluttony I feel about this breakfast: Pornburger calls it the Cali-corn-ication burger, but it's actually eggs Benedict with a chorizo-based hollandaise, a beef patty with huitlacoche (Mexican corn smut), avocado, ancho rubbed corn, and salty pork rind crumble as crunchy seasoning. All on an English muffin. GIMME.


The Pickleback Burger

Beer-braised pork cheek, fried breaded pickle, spicy purple cabbage slaw, and cheddar-beer sauce inside a glorious pretzel bread roll. I just had lunch. I don't care. Seamless this thing into my throat, goddamnit—I have my Hudson Baby Bourbon ready!


The Full Mounty Burger

A ground short rib patty on a grilled onion roll, with shredded mustard greens, dill pickle slices, black garlic fries, and cheese curds glazed with a bone marrow poutine sauce.
