Things Have Changed
Long ago, a slider was just one thing: a dime-thin patty of griddle-cooked cheap beef from 1 to 2 ounces nestled in a mini bun less than 2 inches across. The term has expanded to include small, bunned sandwiches made with high quality beef (Kobe sliders!) and even ones made without beef (tuna sliders, lobster sliders, even veggie sliders). They all can be good, but there is something transcendent about the taste and aroma of greasy beef oozing into a spongy bun with a pile of glistening fried onions — a classic formula used at White Manna, Crabill’s, Powers Hamburgers, and Cozy Inn. Admittedly, District Donuts Sliders and Brew ups the ante by using “house blend Creeekstone Black Angus” beef and dressing it with campari tomato and slider sauce, but we forgive the heresy: it’s a delicious slider!
