The Victory Lap Challenge at Sickies Garage Burgers & Brews starts with two patty melts — “starts” being the key word.

Those form the bun of sorts, enclosing a middle “bun” of a grilled cheese sandwich. But then Sickies really piles it on: pulled pork, bacon, additional burger patties, two fried eggs, fried jalapenos, fried pickles and boneless wings, with barbecue and sriracha sauces to help hold it all together. And, in case that doesn’t meet your fried quotient, a mountain of french fries is served alongside, for a total of five pounds of food.

The Victory Lap Challenge is $49.99, but if you qualify for the clean plate club in an hour it’s free, and you get a commemorative T-shirt, plus your name on Sickies’ wall of fame.

The Town Square restaurant also has some new menu items, such as warm fry-sized soft pretzel sticks with beer cheese dipping sauce, $9.99; kettle chips with French onion dip, $7.99; the Mozzerati burger with fried cheese curds, marinara and mozzarella cheese, $14.99; and the Chips & Dip Burger, which is topped with kettle chips, French onion dip and provolone cheese, $12.99. sickiesburgers.co

Glazed Doughnut Burger, Sickies Garage

The menu at Sickies, an encyclopedia of brews, burgers, wings, sandwiches and appetizers, is fun and playful. Take the Glazed Doughnut Burger, for example. Who would have thought two glazed doughnuts holding together a beef patty, American cheese and peppered bacon could be so delicious?

Sickies Garage serves up 50 burgers and lots more

There’s a lot to take in at Sickies Garage at Town Square, from the car hanging from the ceiling to the menu boasting 50 burgers, 50 brews, along with appetizers galore and chicken wings that come in more than two dozen sauces.

Sickies’ origin stoy is as freewheeling as its food. It started as an informal gathering of friends at a garage in the Midwest, where they tinkered on cars and motorcycles. Grilling burgers got thrown into the mix, and it became a creative outlet for the DIYers, with each coming up with their signature toppings. Soon, the garage became a place to play hooky, and they would call in “sick” so they could work on their projects and make burgers.

By 2012, the friends opened their first Sickies Garage Burgers & Brews in Fargo, North Dakota. Since then, they’ve expanded to South Dakota and Nebraska, with plans to open in Florida next.

The best way to approach the menu at the Vegas version–fittingly outfitted like a sleek DIY garage–is simply to dive in, starting with apps. With choices ranging from pretzel bites to fried pickles to nachos, you could simply idle there. But rev up your appetite, because the chicken wing section goes way past Buffalo. Hell’s Fury, loaded with ghost peppers, could very well be your final stop, if you can get there.

As for the burgers, it’ll take some time to read all the descriptions, but pay special attention to the only-in-Vegas creations. The High Roller is as ballin’ as they come–one pound of Angus beef stacked with pepper jack cheese, fried jalapeños, fried pickles and peppered bacon, on three layers of Texas toast.

There are also specialty sandwiches, salads and baskets (fish and chips, chicken strips, shrimp and rib tip). And when you get to the end of the menu, you’ll find shakes, malts and root beer floats. Best to pace yourself for a long ride.
