PHOENIX - A Phoenix restaurant is pitting people's stomachs against the clock.
Food truck-turned-restaurant, Aioli Gourmet Burger, recently launched the "Triple Threat Challenge," a Man vs. Food-style challenge that will either have competitors painfully bragging in glory or hunched over in defeat -- and possibly in need of an antacid.
The rules are simple: eat an 18-ounce burger, a tray of loaded fries, and a milkshake...in 15 minutes. Just you. Friends and family can cheer you on, but cannot help.
The cost is $25 per person. Winners will get a congratulatory t-shirt and a photo on the "Wall of Fame", while those unable to finish will get a t-shirt and a photo on the "Wall of Shame."
Three friends, Tom D’Ambrosio, the executive chef, Kyle Hollenbeck, and Michael Cartolano, opened Aioli as a food truck in 2014. They quickly expanded to three trucks and opened a physical restaurant in 2016.
