467 E Silverado Ranch Blvd, Las Vegas
At Slater’s 50/50, you can sink your teeth into a mouthwatering burger that’s 50% beef and 50% bacon, hence the restaurant’s name. The burgers here are monstrous masterpieces, so you should come prepared with a hearty appetite. The Original comes with pepper jack cheese, avocado, chipotle mayo, and a sunny-side-up egg. If this seems like a lot of toppings, just wait until you browse the rest of the menu.
The Bacon Chili Crunch features Slater’s own bacon chili, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and a layer of crunchy potato chips. The Hi-Brow Burger comes topped with melted Swiss, blue cheese, caramelized onions, baby arugula, and a slathering of sauces, including bacon-jalapeno jam, roasted garlic aioli, and horseradish. The Farmhouse Party burger could easily serve a party with three full patties, including the 50/50 patty, an Angus beef patty, and a fried chicken patty. Atop this trio, you’ll find pepper jack cheese, American cheese, Nashville slaw, pickled red onions, sauteed mushrooms, and ranch.
The 24K burger was featured in Forbes for its opulent addition of 24-Karat gold, which dusts the bun and the thick-cut bacon. This burger also comes with a 1/2-pound Wagyu beef patty, truffle cheese, roasted garlic aioli, arugula, and jalapeno-bacon jam. Meanwhile, the Five Alarm Burger comes with a waiver, due to its intense heat that comes from a patty dusted in ghost chile powder, ghost chile jack cheese, grilled jalapenos, and habanero bacon. These are only a few of the highlights on the menu. If you’re looking for an unforgettable meal, you won’t leave disappointed.
