Slater’s 50/50 is infamous for their half beef, half bacon burger patties.
(Vegetarians, I gots nothin’ for ya today)
If you love bacon, this is not as over the top as it may seem.
Today, Sonigram and I split the Flamin’ Hot (the actual patty is spicy) and the B’B’B Bacon Burger (pretty much every ingredient is, or contains, bacon).
Both burgers were significantly different and both packed quite a wallop. It was nice to try some of each and not have to commit to either one since they were both quite rich.
The 50/50 patty is more subtle than I would have expected, nicely moist and flavorful, not too greasy. I found the slices of bacon to be too much and once I removed them, I quite enjoyed all the bacon elements.
Especially that amazing Bacon Pretzel Bun! That was the best part!
I also really loved the three appetizers that we shared, not a bad one in the bunch.
The Fried Bacon Mac and Cheese Balls were AMAZING. The Onion Rings were top notch but my favorite were the super flavorful (yet not too spicy) Beer Battered Jalapeno slices.
They were heavenly.
And no afterburn, if you know what I mean…
While you may feel like you need to jog home (or to Kansas) to burn off the calories you just consumed, I can honestly say it will have been worth it.
And no hitching a ride home, that’s cheating. Kansas is lovely this time of year.
