A Burger Fit For a Sasquatch at The Lodge

I wouldn't be surprised to see Man Vs. Food's Adam Richman bite on this one: The Sasquatch Burger at The Lodge in Scottsdale.

It's a new mega-splurge brought to us by chef Aaron May, who's added homey American pub grub to a repertoire that already includes Spanish tapas (Sol y Sombra), Italian (Autostrada), and breakfast food (Over Easy).

This monster creation smushes a half-pound of Angus chuck, cheese, bacon, and fried onion sticks between two whole grilled cheese sandwiches. Eating one of these will supposedly fortify you with 1,995 calories, 155 grams of fat, and 371 mg of cholesterol, all of which will probably make your pants expand a couple of sizes before you even leave the restaurant -- if you don't have a heart attack first. But I bet you anything it tastes awesome with a pint or three of beer. 

You know, forget about Adam Richman. I think Elvis might come out of hiding for a Sasquatch Burger.
