Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.
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.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
