The Burger, Bacon, and Beer Concept Will Open In Fresno Before Year’s End
Slater’s 50/50, the full-service restaurant concept known for its signature 50/50 burger patty made with 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef, will open its new Fresno, California location before year’s end. The restaurant will be located at 639E Shaw Ave within Fashion Fair Mall and serve the brand’s ‘slaterized’ menu of over-the-top and award-winning burgers, bacon-infused starters, loaded fries and flatbreads, signature wings, and much more.
The Fresno restaurant will boast a variety of 50+ craft beers on tap, hand-selected wines, and Slater’s signature menu of burgers and bacon-centric dishes. Once open, the restaurant will be following local COVID-19 precautions and guidelines, allowing for limited indoor occupancy and a 40 seat outdoor patio. Along with reinforced health and safety guidelines, advance reservations via the Fresno location Yelp page will be recommended due to the restaurant’s limited capacity.
“We are excited to bring Slater’s 50/50 to our Fresno community this year and create an environment that provides great food and atmosphere to our locals,” said Blake Foster, General Manager. “I have always loved the quality food, drinks and fun environment of Slater’s 50/50 and hope to give our employees and guests peace of mind knowing that we will be going above and beyond to ensure their safety at our restaurant to create an environment in which they can experience a comfortable dining experience.”
Slater’s 50/50 was founded in 2009 and built on a passion for all things burgers, bacon, and beer. The restaurant quickly became famous for its original 50/50 patty made of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef, with the menu evolving to include an array of inconceivably “slaterized” items like award-winning burgers, loaded flatbreads, over-the-top salads, amped-up milkshakes, and a wide array of beers on tap. Fan-favorite menu items include the iconic Original 50/50 Burger, ice cream-topped PB & Jellousy Burger, the Ultimate S’more Shake, and the Hickory-Smoked Bacon Bloody Mary.
The Fresno restaurant will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until midnight and Friday and Saturday until 1 a.m. Guests can call (559) 222-5050 once the restaurant is open to order takeout, and reservations will be highly encouraged. Third party delivery will also be available.
Slater’s 50/50 operates 9 restaurants in California, Nevada, Colorado and Hawaii, and has multiple restaurants being built and in development including Riverside and Covina, both which are slated to open before year’s end. The restaurant concept is owned by Elite Restaurant Group, a multi-concept operator focused on fostering growth for emerging restaurant chains, which plans to aggressively grow the Slater’s 50/50 brand across the U.S. in the next few years.
