MILWAUKEE — Calling all foodies and big eaters. There is a new food challenge in Milwaukee that will really put your skills to the test.

Introducing the OOMG Burger from the Milwaukee SafeHouse.

It's 15 patties topped with 15 slices of cheese. It includes 5 slices of American, Pepperjack, and Cheddar cheese. Plus, there is a pound of fried cheese curds, and to top it off, of a 60 oz glass of beer.

However, it's only available on Tuesdays in January.

"We are running it for this limited time so we can try to perfect it and get a lot of great response from it," Nick Dillon the general manager said.

This kind of food challenge is no joke. TODAY'S TMJ4 reporter James Groh tried it and barely got done with six of the burgers and a few handfuls of curds. He didn't drink any of the beer.

In fact, it is so intense, you have to sign a liability waiver before trying the challenge. It's truly a test for great eaters.

"Wake up that day and you just have the need to be the best at something, come on down. Give us a call, a little bit of a heads up, so we are ready for ya," Dillon said.

The meal costs $50, but if you finish it all within an hour, and by yourself, the meal is free and you win: fame, notoriety, pride, and a t-shirt.
