Slater's Goes Completely Nuts With Excesstasy Burger

By Lesley Balla
January 7, 2014

Some might think juice cleanses and salads at the beginning of a new year, others go for ground bacon burgers soaked in bone marrow butter tucked between a beef burger and a grilled cheese sandwich. Slater's 50/50 is counting on the latter. The local burger chain's January special is the aptly-named Excesstasy Burger, which consists of a beef patty plus a 100% bacon patty that's cooked in bone marrow butter, some arugula (for your health), tomato confit, whiskey-caramelized onions, a sunny-side up duck egg, Thousand Island dressing, and an entire white cheddar and bacon grilled cheese sandwich all smooshed between a brioche bun. And yes, we had a mini heart attack just writing that.

They don't stop there, either. Since it's all about excess this month (?!), there's an ice cream sandwich that's just as extreme: a towering stack made with a chocolate chip cookie, two scoops of vanilla ice cream, a homemade peanut butter cup, two scoops of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, and a peanut butter sugar cookie. The most popular thing to drink with it: a Diet Coke, obvs. Look for both all month at the Pasadena, Anaheim and Huntington Beach locations.
