Arachnophobics, don’t read this report any further.
Hungry customers began calling Bull City Burger and Brewery in Durham, North Carolina, last month asking for its famous tarantula burgers.
. . .
The exclusive beef burger is topped with gruyere cheese, oven-roasted tarantula and spicy chili sauce. The tarantulas are “free-ranged” and certified edible, Cindrich explained.
Everyone has a unique way of consuming the large burger.
“One person took the tarantula off the burger, dipped it in ketchup and just popped it in there,” Cindrich said.
The tarantula burger tastes like a crustacean, Cindrich described. It’s crablike — salty but bitter, though the chili sauce adds a bit of heat to it.

A tarantula burger??? I’m definitely not lovin’ it!!!
