Anew burger concept is coming to Texas, more specifically Irving: Called Sickies Garage Burgers & Brews, it’s a garage-themed burger concept that’ll open its first DFW location at 3165 Regent Blvd. in Irving.
According to a release, it’ll open in June.
A previously announced location in Fort Worth will be the second DFW location and is expected to open in August.
Founded in 2012 in Fargo, North Dakota, Sickies is a family-friendly concept known for its expansive menu with 50 burgers and 50 brews, as well as an automotive-inspired décor with classic cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
The menu features items such as:
Twin Cam burger with bacon and nacho cheese, placed on two grilled cheese sandwiches for buns
Glazed Doughnut Burger, featuring a glazed doughnut as a bun
wings, both regular and boneless
shakes and malts, both boozy and non-alcoholic
a bar menu that’s “revved up”
There are Kobe burgers. Super-charged burgers like the one with pepperjack cheese, jalapenos, and peanut butter. Patty melts, and 7 varieties of mac & cheese including Buffalo chicken, Philly mac & cheese with pot roast, and one with BBQ pork.
There are also homestyle dinners like chicken fried chicken and meat loaf, and a selection of fried chicken sandwiches.
It’s time for some historical lore, from the press release:
“In the early 2000s, a group of like-minded friends would meet up to tinker on their projects — motorcycles, cars, or to just talk shop. Grilling at the garage sparked a new avenue for creativity, crafting experimental burgers with unusual toppings that family and friends were excited to try. Testing the newest burgers at the garage, which quickly became known as ‘Sickies Garage,’ was often the reason to play hooky from work by calling in ‘sick.'”
So that’s where the name came from.
There are currently nine locations, including North Dakota and South Dakota, both of the Dakotas, plus Nebraska, Las Vegas, and Kissimmee, Florida. Irving will be the 10th and Fort Worth will be the 11th.
