Southern California-based Slater’s 50/50 to branch out with first Texas location in May, bringing its half-bacon, half-beef burgers to burger-loving Dallas

“We’re coming Mike! Get ready for some serious Burgers Bacon & Beer.”

That’s the message we received yesterday from Scott Slater, the founder of Slater’s 50/50, a well-regarded gourmet burger purveyor based in Southern California.

Slater’s specializes in namesake burgers constructed from equal parts ground bacon and ground beef. I’ve eaten Slaters’ burgers several times and like them quite a bit.

Slater’s 50/50 menu also includes all-beef burgers, a Pizza Burger (50% ground beef and 50% ground Italian sausage) a “Peanut Butter and Jeallousy” (made with 100% beef, bacon and PB&J), turkey burgers, grilled chicken breast and grass-fed bison burgers.

“Slater’s 50/50 was made for Dallas, from Bacon Burgers, Bacon Brownies, Bacon Salt, Bacon Cheese Fries, Bacon Mac n’ Cheese and Bacon Old Fashion cocktails we have slipped swine into all aspects of the menu,” Slater says in a subsequent note to the Hatch. “Every time I visit Dallas, I try and find the biggest baddest burger in town and Slater’s 50/50 is about to be put on that list in Dallas.”

Look for a late May opening for the Dallas Slaters, which will be located in the former Londoner (and the site of the original Greenville Bar and Grill). The store will be the company’s first outside of California and will be operated by a franchisee.

The Dallas Slater’s 50/50 will feature three levels with a bar on each floor and a rooftop patio. A spokesman says the restaurant will also feature “more than 1000 different beers will be offered in a calendar year.”
