So you are out with your mates and the girls on a Friday night and you just don't know where to go to get a decent feed. Something that will not leave you reaching for a 10pm snack which will cost you $1000, give or take a dollar, at the movies to fix, when you should be well nourished and ready to watch the latest Romantic Comedy featuring the uber-talented actor Justin Timberlake (I know, funny joke right?). Well I think I have found the place that will fix that hunger, and not cost an arm and a leg to purchase.
Killa Burgers in Carramar, provides customers with a different spin on the fast food industry in Australia. It brings a little taste of America to our fine land, and with it, a view of just how big the meals can get. Picture the image of an Oporto burger, now enlarge that to let's say, the size of a pizza, and you have the Killa Burger. You may be sitting there wondering, how do I eat that? To answer your question I would respond by saying, you would eat this burger with your mouth.
For those with the stomach for it, there is a challenge called 'The Killa Cage,' which can involve a stomach turning display of fearlessness. The Killa burger, Wicked chips, Killa drink and Killa soft drink all devoured in a sickening sixty minutes of solidarity inside a cage. If you do actually finish it all, you could win some amazing prizes, and get your name on the 'Wall of Fame,' (and a place in my mind as a true legend of consumption). While I did not attempt this challenge due to the fear of being Killed I have developed over my life, I did witness a number of others attempting to get their claim to fame. The way the challenge can break you down until you are a mere smidgen of your former self is truly astonishing to witness.
For all those ordinary people who like to keep their food inside their stomachs, there is a regular and large size to choose from. A warning to all those who are ill advised, the different sizes do not just change your can of drink into a bottle, and your regular chips into a large, the burgers also come in larger sizes. I purchased a large Chicken burger meal and it was quite nice, did not taste like grease, and did not fall apart the moment I picked it up. The chips come in a box that reminded me of noodle boxes, and therefore it could be closed and taken with you.
A large meal only cost me $10, which was a very pleasant surprise compared to the prices of other fast food outlets. There is a drive thru so you can pick up and take to your desired location. Just an interesting side note for you, the Killa burger is available for takeaway and comes in cake sized box.
Overall I believe the Killa burger experience to be a cheap, filling and tasty treat for all. I would definitely recommend it and would love to hear everyone's opinion on the place and especially if you competed in the challenge (succeeding or failing).
we actually ate there not too long ago, i got a small and i could only just finish that...value for money is incredible. The same price as a cheeseburger at maccas but triple the size

"The way the challenge can break you down until you are a mere smidgen of your former self is truly astonishing to witness" - Really ??? I reckon that if you took the challenge on a regular basis, there would be no way that people could call you "....a smidgen of your former self". Perhaps the size of the Hindenburg would be more accurate ! Having said that, your article inspires me to give it a try.

I wish we had this place here in Melbourne. It sounds amazing. I love huge, cheap meals that leave you feeling disillusioned and bloated. Hooray for fast-food.
I love the fact that you have to sit in a cage to do the challenge - awesome.
We have a couple of places here in Melbourne that do a burger challenge but there is no cage. We want a cage. :P
