Slater’s 50/50 Lake Forest marks the latest phase of growth for the brand and what founder Scott Slater fondly refers to as its “O.C. trifecta.” A SoCal native, Slater had his sights set on Orange County as a stronghold for his brand from the start, believing the Slater’s 50/50 concept would resonate with a wide cross section of consumers in the region not only because of its commitment to great food and service, but for its unique approach to customizing the guest experience. “I have always loved Orange County and felt it was a favorable and supportive place to do business,” Slater says. “I feel like Orange County customers have embraced us in such a wonderful way because we embrace them. In every community we enter, our overiding goal as a team is to ensure that our restaurants feel like part of the fabric of a neighborhood and deliver a personalized experience for each and every patron that walks through our doors.”
With five restaurants already under his belt, Slater aims to make Slater’s 50/50 a household name across Southern California and beyond in the coming years and his line-up of burgers, brews and bacon-laced everything is up to the challenge.
The star of the show at Slater’s 50/50 is the signature 50/50 patty made of 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon, resulting in 100% deliciousness. For more adventurous spirits, the Peanut Butter and Jellousy Burger and the all-bacon B’ B’ B’ Bacon Burger consistently create burger converts out of naysayers. The Design It! Menu gives guests the ability to custom design their own gourmet burger bliss with seven meat options, four breads, 12 cheeses, 30+ toppings and 20 sauces.
