Can You Conquer Iowa's Mac 'n' Cheese Burger?

The zombie-themed Walking Ched burger is nearly apocalyptic!

Iowans in search of a gore-met patty needn’t look much further than Zombie Burger.

Boasting four post-apocalyptic-chic spaces throughout the state, the mini-chain puts an otherworldly spin on the basic burger with the Flamethrower (buffalo sauce, onion rings), the Juan of the Dead (crowned with a green chile-and-cheese croquette) and the They’re Coming to Get You Barbara, featuring a bun made from two grilled cheese sandwiches.

But the leader of the Zombie pack is The Walking Ched. The gooey, cheesy bonanza features a bashed, triple-cut beef burger blend with bacon, cheddar, caramelized onions, red onions, mayo and a heaping scoop of mac and cheese. As if that isn’t enough, the whole thing is packaged between two discs of breaded and deep-fried macaroni and cheese.

It’s an all-in-one edible zombie-preparedness kit.
