New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been trying to get his citizens to live healthier lives (and consume less soda) so he’s probably not overly pleased about a new fast food branding heading to the Big Apple: the 60-year-old California-based Fatburger chain.
NYC already has 627 burger places, the New York Daily News reports, but Fatburger’s owners think they’ve got something special enough to separate them from the Shake Shacks, SmashBurgers, Five Guys, Steak 'n Shakes, and other burger-meisters.
Fatburger makes its sandwiches to order and serves up five different sizes, from a 2.5 ounce small to a monstrous, three-patty 24-ounce XXXL that’ll cost you about 2,000 calories (and more if you add on bacon, chili, and guacamole).
