Bet you can’t take down this ginormous, MONSTER of a burger 

6:00 a.m. Monday, Sept. 25, 2017 Dining

A Dayton-area restaurant has a monster double dare that involves a heap of meat, cheese and more meat and cheese between two grilled cheese sandwiches. 

The Wandering Griffin will  offer its brand new Monster Burger  11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday  Sept 29 and Sept. 30 to coincide with the Monster Jam tour stop at Wright State University’s Nutter Center. 

Jonathan Price, the chef and manager of the restaurant at  

3725 Presidential Drive in Beavercreek, is challenging Wright State students in particular, but thinks his creation will take down mostly any  burger.   

“I dare you to  eat this,” Price said. 

The Monster Burger includes: three 7-ounce beef patties, six strips of bacon, a Sahlen hot dog, two slices of ham, BBQ pulled pork, pepper jack, cheddar and swiss cheese, a giant pile of fries, a fried egg, lettuce, tomato, pickles, a massive onion ring, and two grilled cheese sandwiches as the bun.

The Monster Burger costs $29.99 and is recommended for two people. There also will be special Monster beers on tap.

Those who take it on by themselves and finish within seven minutes will win T-shirts and bragging rights. 

“It’s a hands on experience. We want it to be fun and interactive,” Price said. “You go to McDonald’s, you get a tiny burger, and it is gone in three bites. Ours, it is all about having fun with food. It’s supposed to be socially a talking point.”

The burger weighs in at more than 2.12 pounds and is eight inches long.  

Price recommends those who try the burger to flatten it down first. Still it is hard to take a bite out of this monster.
