You may have read our article about the world’s biggest burger. You may not have. You should, ’cause it’s preposterous. However, this article is about an even bigger burger.
There used to be this gargantuan burger invasion at Yesterland in California. Okay, okay, it was a burger joint, not an edible burger, but it was amazingly huge. Burger Invasion officially opened at Disney’s California Adventure February 8, 2001, operated by McDonalds. There’s a great historical article with photos over at Yesterland’s Web site. Do you love burger history? It’s a must read.
Burger Invasion had an interplanetary theme going on, which is cool for space buffs and kids who want to be astronauts. It was all 50’s diner kind of decor, the way they depicted outer space back then. It was just a take-out burger stand with a limited main course McDonalds menu separated from the dessert menu with individual ordering lines and windows. Yeah, they did not do the full menu — kinda cool.
Alas, Burger Invasion changed hands in 2008, and then closed in 2010.
Did anyone get to this Burger Invasion in its heyday?
