Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes and Fries is a casual fast food chain headquartered in Mount Olive. The restaurant pays homage to the classic American diners of the 1950s and specializes in milkshakes, cheesesteaks, and some of the biggest burgers you'll ever try.

The food here is prepared fresh on their open-grill design where you can watch each meal being hand-crafted.

The real star of the show here has to be the monstrous 55-ounce beef burger called the Five Five Challenge.

The Five Five Challenge is a popular attraction to most Hwy 55 locations. Customers arrive in groups to take on the challenge of eating this massive nearly 4-pound burger in the allotted time frame.

Usually, each of these burgers is stacked with six or even seven cheese covered patties between a single bun. They're also served with a side of French fries or crispy tater tots.
