Those rascals at Slater's 50/50 are at it again with their themed burgers. Given it's November, yes there's turkey, yes there's cranberry...but sage? Let the kind Slater's folks explain.

"An old favorite from the original menu," goes the story, "the burger features Slater's signature fresh turkey patty topped with house-made brioche dressing, turkey gravy, scratch-made cranberry sauce and sage mayo. Served on a honey wheat bun. It's like getting your whole turkey dinner wrapped up in one super-tasty sandwich."

I can't stand turkey or cranberry, yet it works on this steamed ham, which I tasted the first time around: concentrated but not overwhelming, and far better than a plate of the bird. As for the beer? A Lagunitas Czech-style Pils. Per the flackage: The crisp, clean finish of this classic pilsener balances the sweetness of the cranberries creating a wonderful pairing."

Will they be open for Thanksgiving? Let's hope!

I went about 2 years ago with high hopes as this was my first time dining at a Slaters. The Thanksgiving burger was surprisingly bland and boaring. I was sooo dissapointed. On the other hand I tried the banana chocolate chip bread pudding and it was AMAZING! Unfortunately the burger issue was big enough to cause me never to return :-( it also didn't look as good as this pic. Maybe they changed or maybe I went on a bad day.

Sounds like the burger of the month from Jakes Way Back Burgers. Wonder who thought of it first.

The only time I've ever been to Slaters was three years ago, and I had this burger. I was so excited because I had heard such good thing about Slaters and I love thanksgiving sandwiches. Sadly it was the most bland, worst burger I've ever had! I haven't been back since.
