TEMPE — You have heard of the Abominable Snowman, Bigfoot, Yeti -- but you have not heard about this Sasquatch! The burger matches its name for a reason. No, it is not hairy and fictional -- it is GIGANTIC. Unlike the aforementioned, the only place you will this Sasquatch is at The Lodge in Tempe.

See how the burger is assembled then held together using a steak knife as the toothpick in the video above!

Owner and General Manager Justin Glancy credits the creation of the burger to the request of a famous face. While we are on the topic of recognizable furry monsters, this star happened to be the loveable voice for Disney Pixar's Sully of Monsters Inc.

"One of our owners is buddies with John Goodman and he needed a sandwich for his TV show Best Food Ever. This is what we came up with! In 2012, a lot of people were excited about Bigfoot. We wanted to make a spin on Bigfoot, so as a cabin we chose Sasquatch."

The burger touts a half-pound select ground beef patty, several slices of cheese, a few strips of bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion plus a handful of onion strings -- all held together with two Texas toast grilled cheese sandwiches as the buns!
