We just arrived in Traverse City but have been here many times before. Tonight we wanted try something new (for us). We found this on TripAdvisor and gave it a try. Wow. This place is worth the high rating. Both burgers we had were wonderful. I had the Bacon Burger (double) and my wife had the TC Cherry Burger. The hand cut fries and the tater-tots were both fresh and tasty. And they offer pretzel buns! Add in the local soda choices, and you have the perfect place to start a vacation!

Slabtown Cafe and Burgers is a classic Traverse City burger joint. Located in one of the traditional homes in an older neighborhood, the food is excellent and the cozy atmosphere, like having burgers at your friends house. My favorite is enjoying a burger, with the toppings of my choice and a locally made fountain drink on the front porch at dusk. Enjoy a casual dinner on a cool "upnorth" summer evening.

The fries here were the best part. The burgers were just okay, didn't have much flavor/seasoning to them. The place is super cute and the decor is nice.

If you are looking for a basic, affordable burger and want a little bit more than Mc Donald's and Burger King, Slabtown is a good choice. If you expect more than that, you should go somewhere else.
