Skybokx in Natick will introduce their Grand Slam Burger Challenge on Father’s Day. The five-pound burger features eight (EIGHT!) American-cheese-coated beef patties, a pound of pulled pork, cole slaw, onion rings and corn relish. The feast — which inexplicably includes a side salad with low-cal dressing, as well as Cajun tots and a pickle — is $25, but should you take the “challenge” and devour the whole she-bang in 25 minutes or less, it’s on the house.
Available for lunch or dinner, $25, SKYBOKX 109 GastroSports, 319 Speen St, Natick, 508-903-1600, skybokx109.com.
