Field review by the editors.

Willow Creek, California

The Early Bird restaurant, which sits east of Willow Creek along Hwy 299, is the "Home of the Bigfoot Burger." For decades they've baked special, foot-shaped French bread buns each morning to serve up their sandwich specialty. According to the menu it's "two patties, cheese 3 slices of bacon, served on a homemade French foot, piled with all the fixings."

The outside signs promotes the Bigfoot Burger, and also that "Ammunition" is available for purchase (this is, after all, Bigfoot country).

Inside, the Bigfoot theme is expanded in a wall mural -- but it's a trippy Bigfoot, shown skipping across rocks and holding a bunch of daisies, while another Bigfoot heats coffee and doughnuts over a campfire. It's as if they don't take Bigfoot seriously at all....
