Your eyes do not deceive you — this nine-patty “T-Rex” Wendy’s burger is real, but only at a single location in Brandon, a city in Canada’s Manitoba province. A Reddit user recently posted the below image of the gargantuan sandwich, and HuffPost decided to investigate.
A call to the eatery revealed that the “T-Rex” allegedly came into being after a tongue-in-cheek ad featuring the burger, then fictional, appeared in a Sports Illustrated magazine as long as nine years ago. Customers began requesting the burger, and management at the Brandon Wendy’s obliged.
An odd story, no? Although the “T-Rex” isn’t on the location’s official menu, a photo copy of the original Sports Illustrated ad is displayed in the restaurant and hungry patrons can order it for $21.99
