Sign for Hamburger record of 1982.

World's Largest Hamburger and Grill

This small town managed to get into the Guinness Book of World Records in 1982 with a 3,591 lb. hamburger fried and then flipped on a grill. One portion of the grill stands on the road into the town. It was recently repainted.

Rutland has an UffDa Day the first Sunday in October - next year will be the 25th (and maybe last from what I hear).

[Debbie, 10/29/2008]

In contrast to restaurants that regularly serve up a so-called "World's Largest Hamburger," Rutland shot their wad in a one-time massive grilling, not repeated since 1982. The record has apparently not been surpassed...and the grill and sign remain.
