You’ll Need To Lei Down After This Slater’s 50/50 x King’s Hawaiian’s Item Collaboration

When you think of Hawaiian food, the first items to come to mind are probably poke and musubi. But brace yourselves, mainlanders, because Slater’s 50/50 wants to add a burger to that list! In celebration of  Hawaiian Foods Week, the award-winning gastropub chain has partnered with the iconic KING’S HAWAIIAN to bring us the mac daddy of patties. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Big Island Feast

The burger, which serves a luau’s worth at 4 to 6 people, features a 2 ½ pound, signature 50/50 patty – named for its 50% ground beef, 50% ground bacon composition. It’s then topped with grilled pineapple, a full can of fried SPAM, cole slaw, four sunny side up eggs, and six slices of American cheese. 

Swaddled in a full KING’S HAWAIIAN Round Loaf and drizzled with teriyaki sauce, this meat behemoth is served tableside and cut as if it were a cake, like the glorious spectacle it is. As if that weren’t sufficient, it comes with a SPAM’s can worth of macaroni salad, just in case you have any room left in your stomach at all.

The result is a decadent, but well-balanced tribute to Hawaii’s unique food culture – a culinary lovechild born out of native Hawaiian cuisine blended with various cultural and ethnic influences from the island nation’s thriving immigrant population. 

If you’re not ready to devour this entire behemoth, you can order the smaller version of the burger called the “King’s Luau,” also served on King’s Hawaiian rolls.

The Big Island Feast is available through September at all Slater’s 50/50 locations, so assemble a team of fellow gluttons and indulge before it’s too late.

Bacon Lava Cakes Exist, Here’s How To Get One For Free

Bacon lover’s rejoice! Treat yourself one last time before committing to that New Year’s Resolution, again. Forget scarfing down a sheet of bacon on National Bacon Day, Slater’s 50/50 is changing the game. They are giving away decadent bacon lava cakes to every person that downloads their app on or before Sunday, December 30th. The best part is you don’t even have to buy anything!

There’s no better way to ring in National Bacon Day than with a molten dark chocolate cake served with a thick slice of salted caramel smoked bacon. Slater’s went the extra mile by adding bacon caramel sprinkled on top along with a dark chocolate drizzle. Candied pecans are sure to add a satisfying crunch and the sweet coolness of vanilla ice cream will compliment the warm, gooey chocolate cake. We never knew this could be a thing.

It’s rare when free really means free and you won’t want to miss this opportunity. Just show the app in-store at any Slater’s 50/50 in California, Nevada, or Texas and you will be rewarded.
