, the restaurant that's caused many weak souls to ditch their diets and never look back, has done it again. And in this round, instead of bringing us one new jaw-dropping, in-your-face monstrosity, they're bringing us several. Get ready to drool.
First up is the Fritos Crunch Burger (pictured above), a Sterling Ground Beef patty topped with melted cheddar cheese, the restaurant's signature chili, Fritos and thousand island dressing on white brioche. Oh, yes,
Next, we have Beer Cheese Fries. They've taken fries, topped them with signature chili and added beer cheese sauce, melted pepper jack cheese and jalapenos.
And then there's the B' B' B' Bacon Burger. This is Slater's 50/50, after all. It's a 50/50 patty with bacon American cheese, a sunny side up egg, thick cut bacon and bacon island dressing on a bacon pretzel bun. Now we know who to blame for the bacon shortage.
In addition to these artery-clogging offerings, the new menu also includes four new mac n' cheese dishes, a Top Ramen salad, beer cocktails and--get this--Pop Rocks milkshakes.
It's all rolling out this week at all Slater's 50/50 locations, so get out those fat pants now.
