Where’s the beef? Not in the ‘Merica burger. If you don’t believe there’s such a thing as too much bacon, you’ve got kindred spirits among the creative minds at Slater’s 50/50, a small, pork product-obsessed California burger chain.

Slater’s 50/50 is a trio of restaurants in Southern California that has been making a name for itself with its only-in-America blend of 50% beef and 50% bacon in its burgers. While that might be enough bacon for many people, Slater’s has now introduced The ‘Merica burger, featuring a patty made of 100% ground bacon topped with a slice of thick cut bacon, a sunny side up egg, a slab of bacon cheddar cheese, and, of course, “bacon island” dressing .
This all-bacon burger is only available for the month for July, though, after which time Slater’s 50/50 is likely to introduce an even more outlandish burger. The chain is known for going over the top with its burger concoctions. They’ve featured pulled pork burgers, chorizo burgers, and even a chili cheese frito burger in the past. But how can the chain follow an all-bacon burger? Perhaps they should offer one filled with cholesterol-lowering medication. Or maybe even giving away a free bacon coffin to its most loyal customers.
