Tucked in a neighborhood setting several blocks west of downtown, Slabtown provides visitors terrific burgers along with great soups and fresh-cut fries.
But just having a good burger is one thing. Offering different *types* of burgers, with interesting toppings, combinations and options is something else. And it is here that Slabtown becomes so irrestible. Instead of thinking, "well I just had a burger early this week, I'm in the mood for something else," you end up wondering what might be on the ever-changing menu on your next visit.
You order at the counter, try to find a place to sit in the myriad of wooden tables (which can be a challenge is the place is really busy), and the food is brought out to you. Soups are self-serve from different pots to the left of the order counter--this can pose a bit of a logistical challenge as this means fording through the rest of the customers waiting to place their order. But folks are usually genial enough to let you pass through without difficulty.
Slabtown is more than worth the effort to find. A great, basic addition to the great TC casual culinary lineup.
