I've been slacking off on my burger blogging and my burger eating lately! I still have to document my pre-Father's Day trip to Whitey's Booze and Burgers - it's somewhat painful to write about. So that will wait for another day. So here's a little something to tide you over until then.
But last week, I found myself at Steak&Shake - just a quick lunch break. I've eaten at S&S a ton of times - and I imagine most people in the NE Ohio area have as well. So wasn't really planning to document the trip - but they have something new that must be shared with you all.
Yep - that's right - they now have Sliders! Well, actually S&S call them shooters. And they come in seven different varieties - Buffalo, BBQ, Ketchup&Onion, Frisco, Kitchen&Mustard, A1 and Chipolte.
Unfortunately on this visit, I didn't notice the sliders until I had already placed my order (for the same thing I always get - the Frisco burger!). So I caught the waiter quick, and told him to throw a Chipolte Slider on to my order.
Funnily enough, it arrived before the rest of my meal on its own plate - a burger appetizer for the main burger! I was famished, and wolfed it down in just a couple bites. So I went back the very next day to do some further investigating. I ordered five sliders - as seen above! I should've just gone for all seven, one of each - but I settled on two chipolte, two buffalo and a frisco.
I wasn't quite as impressed this second time - maybe due to the lack of surprise, and lack of extreme hunger. They were good, don't get me wrong, but didn't blow me away. I couldn't even tell which slider was which - the main flavor from all of them was bread (lot more bread in these sliders than meat or sauce). But they were still good, and under a buck a piece - so can't go wrong with that!
Yep, overall these burgers get a thumbs up from me. But unlike the true king of tiny-sized burger treats - they're not gonna get any songs written about them!
I just realized - I accidentally called these burgers "Sliders" the entire post instead of their real name - Shooters. But I'm not going back and changing that! Let's face it - they're Sliders.
