A sports bar with the most special burgers in town. If you go try the Vampire dip at least once. Also don't be surprised if the burger starts to spill out of the bun, or if you have to take half of the burger home because that thing is massive.

So many choices! Our table tried the PB burger/ Bison/ the old timer/ backyard burger. And some custom orders. All were good. The fries. Sweet potato fries and onion rings good. The bacon catsup that comes with the fries is really good. We had the bacon chocolate brownie sundae, but better was this shortbread/coconut cookie with ice cream.

Slaters makes a BIG burger so bring your appetite! Beef and bacon combine for a hearty burger. They have lots on different beer on tap, too. A good place to gather friends together for a meal.

Really good burgers. Super cool that you can create your own and even name it. Spam on a burger? Hell yeah. They also sell mickeys in the 40 oz bottle and will give you a brown paper bag to put it in. Radical.

Such a delicous burger...50/50 means half bacon and half beef! However, Slaters has a variety of other burgers including chicken and vegetarian options and you can order from the menu or make your own! My burger was to die for and I barely finished the fries although they were delicious too!. The atmosphere is great for a date or family dinner and their local beer list is extremely impressive.

Very delicious burgers (of course) with a lot of varieties. I had a surf and turf, which means there was crab on my burger! It tasted great, but what I really loved was the sweet potato fries! Not a huge fan of the deep fried pickles, but thought I should try them at least once.

Great beer selection along with a pretty tasty bacon inspired menu. They specialize in the 50/50 burger which is half bacon, half hamburger. The down side to this tasty burgers is that they don't come with sides. The sides have to be ordered separately and it can ad up, my favorite of which were the deep fried pickles.

The food was amazing and had large portion sizes. If you get the 50/50 burger get it well done so you don't eat uncooked pork. Perfect place for burger and beer lovers.

Love the food here what can be more fun than creating your very own burger. So many options to choose from it will keep you coming back again and again. Try the shake options for some really fun options.

Bartender service was great. Waiter service was below expectations. It was a busy night which could be a factor but our waiter didn't seem to care about us. Either way, the food is amazing so go there! 50/50 means half beef half bacon!

Bacon. Need I say more. This place lets you design your burger from what kind of meat and bun, to every topping and sauce. Go classic with a cheeseburger, or go crazy and choose everything with bacon in it. They have bacon buns, bacon cheese, bacon ketchup, and half bacon patties. I give Slater's 5 out of 5 bacons.

I finally got to try the Slater's madness...my oh my, can we say bacon? Say it all together now. The famous 50/50 burger is half bacon, half beef, all delicious. You can choose from one of their hearty, artisan predesigned burgers or design your own, which I did. You'll have choices for everything down to the type of bun you want...and I promise you, the indecisive folk like me will have trouble getting through even this small task. Condiments and toppings are aplenty, right down to baconnaise (yes that is bacon infused mayonnaise, delicious) and bacon ketchup. Not everything is bacon, though - try one of their many milkshakes (like the bananas foster we ordered to share, with the addition of peanut butter) and their INSANE long craft beer list. It's an experience right to the very end - and if you go on a Tuesday night in San Marcos, you can try to win your meal through their trivia night game. I can't remember the last time I had so much fun at dinner.

Live the fact that they have so many beers to chose from and wine and cocktails to but the 50/50 burger was to firm nit juicy enough but had good flavor and onion rings were real greasy . Bacon Bloody Marys look awesome
