Slater's 50/50: Burgers by Design

A fellow blogger reviews Slater's 50/50: Burgers by Design once on their blog and I just knew I had to try it!  I mentioned it to my aunt on Xmas and she told me to let her know when we went and she and my cousin would meet us...yay!  We invited my grandparents to go which was cool because they hadn't seen each other in almost 10 years!

Slater's has make your own burgers with everything imaginable, but they also have pre-designed combinations.  We did a combination of both!

My mom got "The Ballpark" which is a beef patty, chili, cheese sauce, onions and 1000 island dressing.  She took off the top bun and polished the rest off!

I ordered the "Peanut Butter and Jellousy" which is a beef patty, bacon, peanut butter, and jelly.  Oddly enough, the bacon was the ingredient whose flavor was lost.  But....this was delicious!  I am so glad I gave this unique combination of flavors a try :)

My nana made her own burger with a beef patty, teriyaki sauce, pineapple and cheese.  She loved it but brought a lot home!

I think myy cousin, Erik, ordered "The Old Timey" which is a beef patty, American cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, and 1000 island dressing.  He made the mistake of ordering the 2/3 lb burger while we all got the 1/3 lb burger.  He had at least half left!

My Auntie Marilyn ordered their signature burger, "The 50/50".  The patty is half crumbled bacon and half beef.  It comes with a sunny side up egg, avocado mash, and then she substituted in cheddar cheese and regular mayo.  So unique!

Their burgers all come with pickles, but nothing else.  So the six of us shared two appetizer combination plates.  We had regular fries with bacon infused ketchup, sweet potato fries with pumpkin sauce, and deep fried artichoke hearts with sage mayo.  The sides were all delicious and we actually had leftovers!

Deep fried artichoke hearts are my favorite and I almost always order them when I see them!

Everyone who tried the bacon infused ketchup loved it, but unfortunately I don't like ketchup so I didn't try it.

Have you ever been to a restaurant like this with such unique food items or combinations?  What did you think?

No I haven't ever been to a place like this but OMG look at the size of those portions? I doubt I would be able to eat half of that plate. They do look worthy of trying though!

Oh my gosh - those are HUGE!!! The only place like this I have been to is Red Robin - they have some pretty unique burgers too, but nothing like that Peanut Butter one you had :)
