NC Restaurant Just Started Serving America’s First ‘Tarantula Burger’


One bold new North Carolina restaurant has just started serving up America’s first ‘tarantula burger’ to brave customers.

Durham’s ‘Bull City Burger and Brewery‘ is now cooking up the 8-legged critters in celebration of Exotic Meat Month.

To get your hands on the burger, you’ll have to pasture-raised North Carolina beef, gruyere cheese, an oven-roasted tarantula and spicy chili sauce. You’ll have to go to the restaurant to pick up a raffle ticket, then wait for your number to be drawn and posted on Facebook, Twitter, and our website. If your raffle number is drawn, you can call to arrange a time to return to the restaurant to order your own Tarantula Burger (pasture-raised NC beef burger, gruyere cheese, oven-roasted tarantula, and spicy chili sauce) with Dirty Fries for $30.

According to the restaurant’s website, “If you are able to eat the entire burger you will receive one of our limited edition Tarantula Challenge t-shirts (sizes are limited) and get your picture taken for social media fame and glory.”

The adventurous restaurant also serves burgers topped with bugs;

as well as rabbit burgers, and fresh python curry;
