The burger costs $30 and comes with a pasture-raised North Carolina beef-burger, gruyere cheese, spicy chili sauce, and one oven-roasted tarantula. To sign up for the limited-time challenge just head to Bull City Burger in Durham, North Carolina and if you manage to eat the whole burger you'll even get a free t-shirt to commemorate the eight-legged treat.

In a tweet from Bull City Burger, they describe one contestant named Martha who managed to consume an entire tarantula burger. In the same tweet, the restaurant called out the next candidate for the creepy crawler challenge, "Next up? Randall K." They called out his ticket number and said to give them a call.

One ticket number is called each day and they then have 48 hours to contact the restaurant and schedule their tarantula-eating session. As for what it tastes like? A restaurant representative said, "People say it tastes most like crab, or other shellfish, sometimes with a bit of a metallic-y taste."
