The Undead Gaffigan, special to Juice

Before you watch Jim Gaffigan, eat The Undead Gaffigan at Zombie Burger

Late last year Zombie Burger tweeted at comedian Jim Gaffigan asking him what he would like on a burger named in his honor. His response did not sound doable:

But somehow Zombie Burger pulled it off. Gaffigan performs tonight at the Des Moines Civic Center, and Zombie Burger is currently serving The Undead Gaffigan with Cheddar, fried jalapeños, bacon and Baconnaise on grilled Texas toast and available with up to five burger patties. Regular white bread wouldn’t hold up to that kind of weight, so Texas toast had to be worked in.

And given Gaffigan’s jokes on Hot Pockets, the restaurant also came up with another item, the Hell Pocket, a homemade fried hot pocket (ham. bacon, caramelized onion and cheddar), cheddar cheese, fried jalapeños, Baconnaise on Texas toast. Check that out here.
