40) The Thurman Burger, Thurman Café (Columbus, Ohio)

The family-owned Thurman Café makes some tasty burgers; there’s no way around it. The restaurant, which opened in Columbus’ German Village in 1942, has been stuffing guests to the gills ever since, and their flagship Thurman Burger is a masterpiece of the "so big I probably shouldn’t finish it in one sitting but I will anyway" style. Each patty is a whopping three-quarter-pound of 85:15 ground chuck, and this one comes topped with grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, sautéed mushrooms, pickles, jalapeño slices, mayonnaise, a half-pound of sliced ham, melted mozzarella, and American cheese. On second thought, maybe you shouldn’t finish this in one sitting.
