Today is a most beautiful day because today is the day Slater's 50/50 debuts its latest specialty burger. Capitalizing on the nation's Sriracha anxiety, the venerable steamed-hams chain will construct a burger where the condiment will play a crucial role. OH DEAR...
Per the flackage:
"I personally put Sriracha on everything," said Scott Slater, founder and CEO of Slater's 50/50. "When we got word there is a chance that a shortage of Sriracha may be a reality, the first thing we did was call our supplier to stock up. Then, we set Chef Brad loose in the kitchen to create a burger that would blow people's minds. People don't mess around when it comes to Sriracha and neither do we."
The Sriracha Burger features Slater's signature 50/50 blend mixed with Huy Fong Sriracha and Chili Garlic Sauce, resting on a bed of Sriracha Coleslaw. Topped with a Sriracha mushroom sauté, melting pepperjack cheese, Sriracha glazed thick cut bacon ribbons, Sriracha mayo and finished off with even more Sriracha on top of all that Sriracha and set atop our brioche bun.

The Sriracha Burger sells for $10.95 will be available at all six Slater's 50/50 locations throughout Southern California beginning on Monday, December 9th.
Unlike Slater's Burger of the Month specials, there is no time limit on The Sriracha Burger. "As long as our guests are loving it and we are able to keep our supply of Sriracha to meet the demand, we will serve it," says Slater.
Get to it, folks!
