Slater’s 50/50 Giveaway

Please note, this giveaway is now closed. Congrats to entry #43!

Football season is here! Slater’s 50/50 is always a great spot to watch games on their multiple screens while munching on burgers and shakes, but in addition, Slater’s is offering Tailgate packages which includes tickets to a Chargers’ game along with a pre-grame tailgate at the stadium with Slater’s burgers and beer. I’m doing a giveaway for a pair of tickets to the game + the Slater’s pre-game Tailgate party (worth $190) at the end of this post.

I was also recently invited to check out some new menu items at Slater’s 50/50, which of course really excited Mr. K. He stops here for a burger whenever he gets a chance.

Vampire Dip

We started our lunch with some vampire dip. Garlicky, cheesy, artichoke goodness served in a sourdough bread bowl. I loved the presentation and the fried pita bread.

The ‘Roo Burger

Slater’s always has a burger of the month and this month they are featuring a 50% kangaroo meat/50% bacon patty burger topped with melted brie, huckleberry ketchup, and crushed macadamia ricotta.

We were both really happy with this burger. You could definitely taste the kangaroo meat which had a slighty gamey flavor. It tasted more like a sausage patty rather than a beef burger patty because of the texture of kangaroo meat. The huckleberry ketchup is more like a jam because it’s quite sweet. Normally I don’t like sweets in my burger, but the toppings were really well balanced. This has definitely been one of my favorite burgers here.

Kale Quinoa Salad

I’ve been wanting to try the turkey burger for the longest time, but I always end up finding something else on the menu which pushes that option aside. This time, I was curious to try one of their new menu items, a healthy kale quinoa salad. I got mine topped with some grilled chicken.

I have to admit, this was a bit too healthy for me, especially after tasting the burger and vampire dip. There’s quite a lot of kale and the dressing didn’t really mask the healthy greens. However, I do like that they have added a healthy menu option.

Milk Chocolate Guinness

We also shared a milk chocolate Guinness milkshake. There was a slight bite from the Guinness but it wasn’t overly bitter like I was afraid of. This was quite tasty and didn’t feel taste as sweet as some of their other milkshakes.

I’ve always been curious about the desserts here, but we never save room. One of these days I’ll finally save enough room to try dessert.

Please note, as indicated above, we were invited to dine here and our meal was complimentary. I was not paid for this review and my opinions remain my own.

Now onto the giveaway. This is the perfect giveaway for football fans. Slater’s is doing a Tailgate party for the October 14, 2013 game (Chargers vs. Colts). This includes entry into the pre-game tailgate at the stadium that will have Slater’s burgers and beer plus tickets to the game. One lucky reader will win two tickets (each ticket is valued at $95). The contest runs until October 3, 2013 at 11:59 pm PST. I will use to generate a winner. To enter, leave a comment at the end of this post, telling me what your favorite menu item at Slater’s is.
