Slater’s 50/50 was created in 2009 in Anaheim Hills, California, by Scott Slater, a SoCal native with a passion for burgers, bacon, craft beer, and a disdain for the boring and inspired by the belief that bacon is meat candy. Scott created the original 50/50 patty of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef. It now has evolved to include an array of inconceivably “slaterized” items packed with award-winning burgers, loaded flatbreads, over-the-top salads, amped-up milkshakes, tons of beers on tap, and some healthy options too.
