A crowd of people gathered to salivate over the unveiling of the massive $2,000 menu item, The Detroit News reported.

The 3-foot-high sandwich packs 540,000 calories and takes 22 hours to cook. Manager Jason Jones said it comes with fries and a drink.

Over the years, Mallie’s has drawn attention for cooking up monstrous burgers. In 2008, the restaurant produced a 134-pound burger. Six months later, the Southgate restaurant made one weighing 164 pounds. In 2009, it built 186-pound burger; and in January, it created one that topped the scales at 319 pounds.

There was no word on how the burger tasted.
