Slater’s 50/50, a unique Burger, Bacon and Beer restaurant, brings its notorious over-the-top menu and namesake patty to Dallas and is now unofficially open.

Making its Dallas debut in Lower Greenville, this location is the brand’s first franchise. Partner and franchisee, Dave Coussirat, first experienced Slater’s 50/50 during a trip to San Diego and knew he had to bring the concept to his hometown of Dallas.

“It was love at first bite for my family,” said Coussirat. “With so many creative burgers, bacon and craft beer, Slater’s 50/50 was an obvious fit for the Lone Star State.  We’re excited to make it part of Texas”.  Continue reading
