Description: Slater’s 50/50® was founded in 2009 in Anaheim Hills, California by Scott Slater, a San Diego State graduate with a passion for gourmet comfort food and craft beer. Teaming up with Executive Chef Brad Lyons, they created the world’s first 50/50 burger – 50 percent ground bacon and 50 percent ground beef – taking the Southern California restaurant scene by storm. In 2011, the second Slater’s 50/50 opened in Huntington Beach followed quickly by the San Diego location. Since opening, Slater’s 50/50 has won a number of awards and accolades including “Best Burger” by The Orange County Register, OC Weekly and FOX 5 San Diego as well as Best New Restaurant by San Diego Magazine. Slater’s 50/50 has also been featured on national television shows including the Travel Channel’s Bacon Paradise and Discovery Channel’s United States of Bacon.

Tried Slater's on the recommendation of TripAdvisor Reviewers... We were not disappointed.
Tons of customers on a Saturday night with UCLA playing football just a few miles away.
The Bacon/Beef Burger was so tasty... Try it with the fries and the bacon flavored catsup.
The fire burger was spicy blazing hot. You can customize your burger order with dozens of ingredients all submitted on your own special order form. Slater's is a great addition to Old Town Pasadena.

So any place that has 100+ beers on Tap has to be good!
They will let you sample the beer to determine which ones you like, I can honestly say that we sampled "several" which led to several Pints,

Ok, now for the burgers, if you like Bacon then you cant go wrong here, starting with the 50/50 burger to the bacon salt or the baconaise, really baconaise.

If you like great burgers and great beer you owe it to yourself to give them a try.

Their original location is too far away, but I had always wanted to try this place because of the legend. They recently opened in Pasadena in a location that several others had died in, but it was PACKED last night, people standing outside waiting to be seated. Decor was that of the average concept Cheesecake Factory / BJs / Yardhouse. And then it went downhill. The burgers - they won't do the meat rarer than medium because of the bacon, so it was not juicy. The bacon taste was very mild. The sauce and condiments did not bring back the juiciness or flavor. Kudos to a great bun that did not fall apart. But eh! The fries were nothing special either, but their bacon-ketchup was terrific. Others with us had the non-bacon burger and someone had a salad, and we all felt the same way. All in all, there are many better burgers out there, so I won't return here by choice.
