DURHAM, N.C. (KRON) –  April is celebrated as “Exotic Meat Month” at one North Carolina restaurant, showcasing exotic meats nationwide and around the world. 

But this year, Bull City Burger and Brewery is kicking things up a notch with a hair-raising special!

Behold the “Tarantula Burger.” It’s a pasture-raised North Carolina beef burger, topped with oven-roasted tarantula, gruyere cheese, and spicy chili sauce. Add a side of Dirty Fries and it’s all yours for $30, according to WFMY.

Looking to sink your teeth into one of these? Only if you’re lucky!

These special burgers are available by lottery only via the “Tarantula Challenge.”

Martha did it yesterday, Randall did it today, and now it’s David D’s turn to give it a shot! David D., give us a call and claim your tarantula burger.

The challenge began April 4 and continues everyday until the creepy crawler supply lasts.

Winners who eat the whole burger get a limited-edition t-shirt as well as all bragging rights, because how many people can say they’ve eaten a “Tarantula Burger”?

Would you try it?
