Eat This Now: Sliders From Hell at Slidebar Rock-n-Roll Kitchen
And although I cannot communicate with the dead, I do believe Dimebag would approve of both the Cowboy and Sliders.
Either way, the burger is fabulous: patty perfectly charred within a soft yet sturdy bun, peppers packing the heat but not overwhelming the meat's flavor, barbecue sauce sweet and sticky, onion rings battered as though they were Vinnie Paul's drum kit after a show. The Velveeta sometimes overwhelms, and the bacon is a bit much, but it's all welcome and wonderful, and hey: Isn't that Dimebag in a nutshell?
And while the Cowboy From Hell is great, I prefer the trio of Sliders. No flavor is lost--if anything, each is more concentrated--and they come with a plate of crunchy tater tots. Even better? Come Happy Hour, you can have them for $5.50--the finest steamed-ham deal in the county right now. Somewhere, Dimebag is smiling . . . while playing the umpteenth version of "Walk" alongside St. Peter, no doubt.
