Snacking On Sliders

I was craving burgers for lunch so I took a trip to Newark, DE (hey… it’s just across the border in Delaware… it’s not like I went to Uranus or West Virginia!) and visited Main Street Sliders which specializes in (hold the front page!) slider burgers.

Main Street Sliders serves classics, like a standard all-fresh beef hamburger slider, for just $1.30 each. Specialty sliders, like the “Southwest” (a beef slider topped with an onion ring, cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce) and the “Chili Cheese” (a beef slider topped with meat & beans chili and cheddar cheese), cost $1.65 each. They have some great sides – string fries, fried pickles, tater tots, jalapeño poppers, etc. – and they can load your fries with chili, cheese, bacon and ranch. Checkout their menu for full details.

I had a Southwestern and a Chili Cheese with a side order of tater tots. Both of my sliders were great! The burgers are made from 100% fresh (never frozen!) beef and they are hand-formed which gives them a homestyle shape. They were cooked perfectly and all the meaty juices were trapped insider the patties. The slider buns were lightly toasted on the grill and I really liked that. (I wish more places would do it!)

I love Southwestern-style burgers with BBQ sauce (checkout my own recipe!) and this one was pretty darn good. I award this burger an 8 out of 10.

The Chili Cheese was my favorite of the day! If you buy a chili dog it’s usual for the chili to be “meat only” without beans. This chili had beans which I think is a great idea.  I award this burger 8 out of 10 also.

The tater tots were nice and crispy on the outside and fluffy soft on the inside. That’s how a tater tot should be. They should not be soggy like usually you get on a bad kid’s menu. Congratulations and three cheers for cooking a perfect tater tot!

Dad sat in the restaurant and ate nothing. He is still on his diet. He just sat there and watched me eat. He looked like a sad puppy. It was really quite funny. Of course, he got his revenge later by making me eat salad for dinner.
