Slater’s 50/50, the restaurant that celebrates bacon, is closing its location at 11661 Preston Road, Suite 153, according to Jason Berry, area director of Slater’s 50/50.
The restaurant, which has been featured on the Food Network, the Travel Channel, Spike TV and Fox News, was known for the pork product. “It’s bacon-friendly,” Berry once said. “We do bacon patties, bacon desserts, bacon sauces, bacon ketchup, anything.”
The restaurant featured five different types of bacon — a Rosemary Parmesan Bacon, a Honey Sriracha Bacon, a Billionaire Bacon, a 24-Karat Gold Bacon and a thick-cut bacon.
The menu focused on burgers, including bison, beef and the famous half-beef, half-bacon blend. Toppings ranged from LTO (lettuce, tomato, onion) to Fritos, grilled pineapple and roasted green chiles. On a recent visit at the Preston Hollow location, only three tables were occupied and the staff was less than friendly.
If you’re still craving bacon burgers, you can still check out the location on Lower Greenville.
