The burgers are pricey but good and service was good. Two burgers and two beers were about $52 so in and out is a better choice and a six pack to go for less than $20. You make the call..

Great food and beer selections served by an efficient staff. Too bad the location caused it to fail. Hopefully Slaters 50/50 will find a new location in the area and bring us back to great food and atmosphere.

Have only been for lunch, but the service is friendly and fast. The burgers are pricey but you get a lot and they're no more expensive than similar mid-scale, sit-down hamburger n beer joints. The beer list is so big you almost get lost in...More

Slater’s 50/50® was founded in 2009 in Anaheim Hills, California by Scott Slater, a San Diego State graduate with a passion for gourmet comfort food and craft beer. Teaming up with Executive Chef Brad Lyons, they created the world’s first 50/50 burger – 50 percent ground bacon and 50 percent ground beef – taking the Southern California restaurant scene by storm. In 2011, the second Slater’s 50/50 opened in Huntington Beach followed quickly by the San Diego location. Since opening, Slater’s 50/50 has won a number of awards and accolades including “Best Burger” by The Orange County Register, OC Weekly and FOX 5 San Diego as well as Best New Restaurant by San Diego Magazine. Slater’s 50/50 has also been featured on national television shows including the Travel Channel’s Bacon Paradise and Discovery Channel’s United States of Bacon.
