If you’re a fan of big, chunky burgers, and you feel like you can take on any eating challenge that’s thrown at you, then you might want to take a good look at the Mission Impossible Meal that’s a popular draw at SafeHouse Chicago.

The restaurant’s most famous creation, the OOmg Burger, is a whopping 15 beef patties stacked on top of each other, each separated by a layer of cheese.

Each patty is 3.5 ounces of steak meat, and the cheese used is a combination of American, cheddar, and pepper jack, making sure this meal is as delicious as possible for the first eight bites (after which you’ll probably start hating yourself for trying to eat more).

It’s a real sight to behold. There’s no wonder the burger needs a knife through its center to keep it from toppling over.

The OOmg Burger costs $50 (don’t forget to tip!), and the meal, which comes with cheese curds and a beer, costs even more, at $65 for the whole thing.

If you are insane enough to actually try this food challenge for yourself, anyone who can clear their plate entirely will receive their meal for free (although, again, maybe leave a tip anyway, especially if you visit the bathroom afterwards) and will also get their name put on the SafeHouse Wall of Fame.

Plus, if that weren’t a sweet enough deal, successfully completing the challenge will earn the winner a free SafeHouse T-shirt and beer glass that they can take home. You’ll also get a free burger every month for a year, should you ever want to eat a SafeHouse meal again, which might prove unlikely considering the ridiculous challenge you’ve just undertaken.

If you’re in the mood to punish your stomach for its constant burger cravings, this challenge might be right up your alley.

Alternatively, feel free to buy this thing, take it home, freeze it, and eat it slowly over a two week period. There are worse ways to make use of a 15-patty burger monstrosity.
