Known for its over-the-top burgers, bacon-infused creations, and unparalleled selection of craft beer, popular Southern California burger restaurant Slater’s 50/50 will open the first of three Las Vegas locations in July 2018 at 467 E. Silverado Ranch Blvd, Suite 100 (Pictured: Damn Bacon Cheeseburger, the Original 50/50 Burger, and the BBB Bacon).
“Slater’s 50/50 was made for Vegas,” said Scott Slater, founder and baron of bacon for Slater’s 50/50. “Fans have been asking for a Las Vegas location for years. The neighborhood needs a place where you can watch the game, get a good meal, and hang out. This is real food, piled high and topped with bacon, and we can’t wait to share it with our new neighbors in Silverado Ranch.”
The Las Vegas restaurant will feature unique menu items like the Impossible Burger and Porkapalooza Platter in addition to menu mainstays, including the Original 50/50 with Slater’s signature 50/50 beef and bacon blend patty, pepper jack cheese, avocado, sunny-side up egg, and chipotle mayo on a brioche bun; the Best Damn Bacon Cheeseburger with Black Canyon Angus beef, thick-cut bacon, grilled onions, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and thousand island on a brioche bun; the P.B. & Jellousy with Black Canyon Angus beef, thick-cut bacon, natural peanut butter, and strawberry jelly on a honey wheat bun; and the Rosemary Turkey Burger with spiced all-natural turkey with rosemary-parmesan bacon, smoked gouda, organic greens, pickled red onions, roasted red peppers, tomato, and garlic aioli on a honey wheat bun. A variety of sides, salads, wings, flatbreads, and local specials will also be featured as well as vegetarian options.
Additionally, 50 craft beers will be on tap, including a special showcase of local brews from Crafthaus, Tenaya Creek, and Bad Beat Brewery. A full bar, signature boozy milkshakes, and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.
Honoring the Las Vegas community, the venue decor will include life-sized Vegas-style marquee letters greeting guests as they arrive, two walls made from hundreds of tap handles, and pop art pieces of Slater’s signature burgers, all designed and created by local craftsmen and artists.
“Slater’s 50/50 may be a national brand, but we pride ourselves on creating a sense of community around each location that opens. Las Vegas is no exception,” said Cindy Sun, general manager of Slater’s 50/50 Las Vegas. “We nested our first store in the heart of Silverado Ranch so that our local fans could get their bacon on in a neighborhood environment.”
Staying true to Slater’s 50/50’s core value to “feed your insatiable hunger to improve,” this new Las Vegas location will be offering up to 100 percent tuition reimbursement at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and at College of Southern Nevada for all team members that qualify. With its arrival, Slater’s 50/50 Las Vegas is also expected to bring 40 new jobs to the area.
Slater’s 50/50 Las Vegas will serve breakfast, lunch, happy hour, dinner, and late-night bites and be open Sunday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 9 a.m to 2 a.m. For more information, visit slaters5050.com/locations/las-
