Jake's Wayback Burgers, Little Ferry, NJ

Jake's Wayback Burgers on Urbanspoon
Where: Jake's Wayback Burgers, Little Ferry, NJ
What:  The Triple Triple 
Build: The Triple Triple consists of nine 3.3 oz patties, American cheese (one slice per patty),  lettuce, and tomato and goes for $15.99 at this NJ location.  An Internet report says the burger has 5100 calories and 117 grams of saturated fat, which is close to six buckets of KFC fried chicken.

Comment:  The Triple Triple breaks down like this:
3.3 oz patties x 9 patties = 29.7 oz divided by 16 oz = 1.86 oz or almost 2 lbs. of meat. 

My third trip to Jake's Wayback Burgers did not disappoint. In fact, it seems the burgers just keep getting better. A colleague at work ordered the Triple Triple and the rest is pretty much history. He had finished half the burger and "hit the wall" and we were okay with that, but he made the mistake of asking the girl behind the counter how many people actually finished this burger.  She replied, "Acutally, there was only one person that couldn't finish it". Needless to say, my friend didn't want to be the second guy, so it was game-on. There isn't much more for me to say about the quality of the beef that I haven't said in previous posts, so I'll let the photos tell the story.  Awesome, just awesome.....
And kudos to Chris for killing that monster.....





Happy to see the Triple Triple as a regular menu item....

Autopsy shot...





Halfway through, there's a bit of hurt in those eyes as he hits the wall.....





Halfway finished, he made the mistake of asking the girl behind the counter how many people actually finish this burger. She replied, "Actually, there was only one person that couldn't finish it".....





Time to regroup and plan a second attack





Each bite feels like an entire burger at this point....






Not much to go.....





Optimistic about finishing although the eyes are closing fast....





From behind, it looks like a normal day at Jake's....





Finally, down to the last bite... can he do it?!





YES!
As we walked to the car, the calories and fat content set in and he started slurring his words like a drunken sailor....  hilarious!!!
