“destination hamburgers and shakes”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

When in Utah, we always schedule a couple of nights in Torrey (Boulder View Motel is a good, simple choice) to give us time to eat a few meals at Slackers (alternating occasionally with the superb Cafe Diablo). My husband talks about the burgers for days before we arrive, and they always live up to their exalted reputation. The shakes are totally decadent and wonderful (try the hot fudge!). Vegetables? Well, do fries or onion rings...delicious, hot and crisp...count? If not, you will be amazed by the house salad: simple but crisp-fresh. Never have had room for any of the fried veggies...always zuke and mushrooms...sometimes green beans. All-in-all, a real treat.

“Pitch perfect burgers”
Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

The combination of shredded lettuce, mayo, pickles, mustard and ketchup was classically perfect. The fried green beans are delish. Relaxed fun decor and I enjoyed the license plates and funny signs. Best burger in the area.

“Unprofessional”
Reviewed May 17, 2012 via mobile

Slackers was much better when it was "Brinks Burgers." They were cheap, friendly, fast, but still had quality food. That all went down the drain when this other lady bought the place. She raised her prices to probably double, never has any decent specials, the little children running the cash register are very unfriendly, and the quality of the food will never compare to what it used to be. We only visit torrey a couple times a year, but slackers will not get our business. We prefer the competitors across the street. I believe they are under new management and are no longer called Chillzz, but Red Cliff.

“Capital Reef National Park Dining”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Recently went to Capital Reef National Park and stayed in Torrey, Utah. Torrey is a very small town but there are several places to eat. The hotel recommended Slackers because we were looking for a burger. The Slackers burgers are the best. The place reminded me of a burger joint from the 60's because you can dine in or walk up to the window to order. The burgers were so good we ate there two nites in a row. Great value and great food. They don't serve beer but their ice cream is great.
