Feeling adventurous? Tarantula burger creeps onto North Carolina menu

Do you dare? Bull City offers 'tarantula burger' for Exotic Meat Month

Normally finding a spider in your food would be a reason to send your food back to the kitchen, but at one North Carolina restaurant, the creepy-crawly is actually supposed to be there. But these may not be for everyone.

At least three people have managed to successfully eat the burger and go home with the free T-shirt.

Then they must claim theirTarantula Burger (pasture-raised NC beef burger, gruyere cheese, oven-roasted tarantula and spicy chili sauce) with Dirty Fries for $30.

Bull City Burger and Brewery is holding the Tarantula Challenge as part of "Exotic Meat Month". Surprisingly, the burger has been so popular the restaurant is holding a raffle to select the "winners" of the burger.
