FRUITA, Colo. (KKCO) - Check out this burger... two and a half pounds of meat, a half pound of bacon and a half pound of cheese. Top that out with a pound and a half of fries and you get, a full stomach. Fast.

Some of the 11 News tried to eat the monster Friday to kick off a fundraiser being held by the Feedlot in Fruita.

"It's a win–win situation, come down and get a good burger and donate to the kids," says Owner Russ Parker. The restaurant is donating all proceeds of this titanic feast to School District 51. On top of that, if you finish it in two hours, by yourself, it's free. The owners will make a donation to the school district for you. The burger costs $30 if you accept the challenge, but if you fail, it's double.

    The FeedLot is EXCEPTIONAL! The customer service is top notch and the food is truly the best around! We eat there on a regular basis and have not found anything that we aren't absolutely in love with by the time we leave!
