Slater’s just keeps bringing the heat, no pun intended. Fellow Foodbeast crew member Giovanni sent me this after his first trip to Slater’s 50/50. This is the Flamin’ Hot burger which is made up of their signature fire beef burger, onion strings, fire roasted green chili’s, pepper jack cheese and chipotle mayo. I’d say that Slater’s is on fire, if you have yet to try this spot you’re missing out.
Hot off its early August opening, Five Guys has inched its way into Orange County through its first Orange, CA location and has no plans to stop expansion before the year’s end. The Virginia-based burger chain will see the arrival of two new locations before we ring in the 2011 new year, one in Huntington Beach and the other in Tustin. According to the Maven, the exact locations will be:
- The District, 2427 Park Ave, Tustin (Opening in November or December)
- 18645 Beach Blvd, Huntington Beach (Opening in September)
Particularly interesting will be the Tustin location. By setting up shop in The District shopping center, they will be in direct competition with In-N-Out, just a few feet away. What’s the word Orange County? Where will you be going for your fast food burger fix in 2011 and beyond??
A few weeks ago, Matt, Gio and I took to our favorite local Carl’s Jr./Green Burrito hybrid retrofitted location to try out the new Big Carl sandwich. I won’t be jumping in on the debate between it and McDonald’s Big Mac, because to say the least, both hamburgers are quite different in look, construction and taste. No better, no worse. Apart from the politics, the sandwich was delicious, we also took to the salsa bar in order to beef up our sandwich midway through. Have it your way!
