Slater’s 50/50 is known for their over-the-top signature burger which is half beef and half bacon. Founder Scott Slater created it as a challenge for a menu item for San Diego Chargers’ tailgating. It became so popular that Scott teamed up with his college buddy, Chef Brad Lyons, to open the original Slater’s 50/50 in Anaheim Hills. Besides the original there are now busy Slater’s locations in Huntington Beach, San Diego, Pasadena, and the most recent in Lake Forest.
On Saturday, April 6th Slater’s 50/50 is hosting “The Backyard Beerfest” at the new Lake Forest restaurant from 2 to 6:00 p.m. On the menu are craft beers from 15 local breweries and a sampling of Slater’s 50/50’s most popular menu items. It’s a benefit for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation.
