Saturday was a bittersweet day for us around here. My youngest daughter moved to Seattle so we took her to Ontario International airport and said goodbye! Sad for us – exciting for her…. Now we have more of a reason to head up north to visit.
My nephew had told me about a restaurant nearby in Rancho Cucamonga that I had to try, so after the airport (and some shopping at Bass Pro) we headed over to Slaters 50/50 burgers. Wow. Burgers made with 50% Ground Beef and 50% Ground Bacon! Oh My… Seriously the best burger I have ever had. The burgers come in 1/3, 2/3, and 1 lb patties (weight after cooking) You can order straight off of the menu or they have a checklist where you can design your own burger with a myriad of choices.Sorry for the bad picture, but you get the idea…. My son was more adventurous than me and added anchovie to his…
While we were waiting for our burgers I had a look at the beer menu… I felt like a kid in a candy shop. They had around 200 beers on tap! I love IPAs and they had 20 great choices in that department. I had the Ritual Hop O Matic.
Our burgers came and they were excellent! I didn’t know what to expect from a burger patty that was 50% Bacon but it was a great combination. I would think that they really have to keep an eye to these while they cook! By the way, they do have regular Beef patties as well.
The most interesting burger that I saw there was the September special…. The Roo. 50% Kangaroo and 50% Bacon. Topped with melted brie, thick cut bacon, huckleberry ketchup and crushed macadamia ricotta. Huckleberry Ketchup? Wow I want some! (Or at least the recipe!)
