PHOENIX – Sid’s Garage is tuning up its first location outside of Idaho at Desert Ridge Marketplace in north Phoenix.

Aiming to open this spring, the burger-based restaurant broke ground Thursday in The District section of the shopping and entertainment center north of the Loop 101 Pima Freeway at Tatum Boulevard.

“We believe Sid’s Garage is a perfect complement to our already stellar lineup of dining options,” Katie Hauptman, Desert Ridge Marketplace marketing director, said in a press release.

“We are confident that the fun atmosphere and exciting menu will be a hit with our customers.”

That menu is highlighted by a creative variety of burgers, such as the Boss Hog, a half-pound Wagyu/Black Angus Snake River Farm patty topped with roasted pork belly, onion rings and Sriracha-bourbon sauce.

If you still have room, or are just looking for something sweet, Sid’s serves up a selection of over-the-top shakes, including the Fat Elvis, made with raspberry jam, peanut butter, vanilla ice cream, Cap’n Crunch and strawberry shortcake.

Plans for the 3,300-square-foot space near the splash pad at Desert Ridge include a large patio, full bar, adult gaming area, private dining rooms and a floating mezzanine.

“We have family who live in Phoenix, and it gave us the opportunity to see what a hotbed of culinary chops the Valley has,” owners Will and Nicole Primavera said in the release.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with such a destination shopping center where our full-throttle food, beverage and environment will connect with so many.”

Sid’s Garage, which has two Idaho locations, in Boise and Meridian, will join a lineup at Desert Ridge that includes more than 100 retailers and restaurants.

We want to hear from you.
