Looks like the filling of a Hostess lemon pie...

The resemblance is striking, I'll give it that. Haven't seen too many deep-fried Hostess fruit pies yet so I'm not sure what that would do to the filling, but there's no doubt the flavor would be noticeably altered even if the appearance didn't change severely.

How about that Cheesy Whopper?

I hadn't actually heard of that before. Good find.

There isn't much in terms of specific information on this product, but from what I've gathered from various mediocre sources, it's no different from a regular Whopper except it contains a disc of deep-fried cheese; and it's been available in various countries around the world such as the Dominican Republic, Egypt and possibly Italy.

Not to be confused, of course, with the Texican Whopper, which was only available in Europe if it isn't still.

How about I throw up a little in my mouth? xP

Lol, sounds like the burger comes from Texaco...

That's an actual burger from Texaco. Doesn't look so appetizing, but what can you expect from gas station food?

Fried chili on a burger? Donuts being used as buns? Texaco gasoline? There's a burger idea right there.

A tapeworm, if anything.

The Luther Burger has been evading me for years now. I can't find it anywhere in this part of the country. I'll have to travel to the Midwest if my desire for it gets the best of me.

I first brought it up in this thread on page 5.

I wouldn't eat it with the cheese, of course, because I don't eat cheese.

Now you're starting to think like a bizarre food aficionado.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... that thing is a heart attack on a bun!

I do expect you to click on that link, by the way... too many images for me to post, and it's so convenient already just to have them all in one place! =)

The pictures are interesting, but it's an absolutely useless link if you want to know anything about the burgers in the images. Each burger is noticeably different from one another, and they all contain ingredients that set them apart from every other burger in the world, but the caption only tells you what kind of cheese is on the burger. Talk about futile.

I'm not criticizing you, by the way, I'm criticizing whoever thoughtlessly set the captions in those images without even letting us know what was on the burgers.

Anyway, out of all those burgers, one did catch my eye over the rest: The Highwayman.

Onion rings, egg, ham and BBQ sauce on one burger. Naturally, it's making my salivary glands act up...

Yes, I did happen to notice that before I posted the link... I just did it for the sake of the goldmine of unique burger images! =)

You caught that one but managed to completely miss the Sheboygan?!

Bratwurst on a burger = WIN.

Bratwurst is an interesting touch, but fried prawns top it.

An honorable mention goes to the Macho Nacho, for its monstrous size and unusual ability to cram at least 10 ingredients between just two buns while still fitting four beef patties and two different kinds of cheese in there. If that isn't enough to make your stomach explode, don't worry--the burger also contains jalapenos.

Even though Denny's and Ruby Tuesday's have come up with other burgers with the same name, I can't locate where this monster is available so unfortunately I don't have a calorie count for you at this time; but if anyone happens to come across one, please do let us know so our arteries aren't left wondering.

I saw that one but I thought the pieces of fried shrimp were onion rings... =/

I guess I need to get my eagle eye checked!

@ Macho Nacho
FOUR beef patties?! That's the same number of patties as sported by the Quadruple Bypass Burger... except this one has two different kinds of cheese as well as jalapenos, tortilla chips, and... salad?

If these burgers represent different regions, why are so many of them using Wisconsin cheeses?
