Slater’s 50/50 Debuts a 100% Ground Bacon Burger

Southern California burger chain Slater’s 50/50 has spent the past couple years making a name for itself through its flagship  burger patty that blends 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon into a local hero of a menu item.

In celebration of one the most patriotic months of the year, the 3-location chain is debuting The ‘merica burger — a patty made of 100% ground bacon topped with a slice of thick cut bacon, a sunny side up egg, a new “bacon island” dressing and a heavy slice of bacon cheddar cheese. Bacon on bacon on bacon — apparently the only way to top their 50/50 ground beef bacon blend patty is to go 100% bacon.

This limited-time burger of the month for July comes on the heels of many over-the-top monthly burger concoctions from the increasingly popular restaurant. Just last month the chain featured a Pulled Pork Burger, the month before that was a Chorizo Burger, and in months prior they’ve had items like an Orange Chicken Burger, a Lamb Burger and even a Chili Cheese Frito Burger back in January of 2011.

If you were the creative mind behind Slater’s burgers, what kind of burger would you have on the menu next month? Share your ideas in the comments!

    I adore bacon but the bacon craze is so overdone. I mean, seriously, what won’t we put bacon on? (Mmm, celebrate that heart attack inducing glory!) However, the fact that they named it The ‘merica Burger does tickle my fancy.

      Bacon is not a Craze dear friend. It is a lifestyle. A Calling, if you will. Bacon reaches heights no other can muster, it touches depths of soul no love can attain. Bacon, like Pepsi, is Lifeforce. Without either, life would not be worth living. If either could be taken intravenously, I’d be the first to try it, because there is just no greater thrill.

      Bacon…is Perfection

         ”life would not be worth living”
        What a dilemma. Eat the bacon and die early, skip the bacon and live a long, unhappy life.

      • Lissydoll

        You mean “bacon, like Coke, is a Lifeforce,” right?

       I won’t put bacon on my pesto and angel hair… hmmm, oh wait.  Maybe I WOULD do that.  On second thought, nope, there’s nothing I wouldn’t put bacon on.

    I just vomited in my mouth, wet my pants, and will beg for more.

  • Cole Booth

    That may be the most well-named burger in history.

    I swear, you Americans are just trying to kill yourselves. That being said, when is this sinful, terrifying portrait of deliciousness making its way to Canada?

    • McGehee

      When they figure out how to make poutine out of 100% bacon too.

    • Jason Terry

      In canada it would be made of back bacon… you hoser

    I like bacon. I eat it at breakfast, I use bacon fat in gravy, I put bacon strips in sandwiches, and crumble it in salads and on baked potatoes. I may try this 100% bacon burger, but I think it may be too intense for me! The whole idea of this bacon burger strikes me as a bit overdone, And the people that like this sort of thing probably think of gravy as a beverage. :)

    Bath Salt Face Burger! 
    A new ‘Merica rises from the corpse of the old one.

    Adding the slice of bacon as a garnish is pure genius.

  • Larry Medina

    while I agree the slices of bacon as a garnish are a cool idea, why didn’t someone think to “bacon wrap” this?

    Not wanting to spoil the fun or anything but this looks and sounds disgusting. ‘Merican Burger ? ‘Merican LardAss more like.

    • TranceTanuki

      Because eating one of these will make you fat right? All food makes you fat, get over it you prude.

  • Veronica

    STFU about bacon:

    That being said, someone please try this and report back PRONTO.

  • Griz

  • Hilly

    Does it come with a round of chemo?

    • TranceTanuki

      Because eating one, or even a few of these will give you cancer right? Not the horribly polluted air…no. Itll be a burger that kills everyone. Fuck off.

    I’m going to go ahead and say that creating a food item that is overloaded with bacon is actually one of the least creative things you can do these days.
