Slater’s 50/50 will celebrate the grand opening of its first Denver restaurant on Friday, July 24. The new location is opening in the RiNo Arts District’s The Hub, a mixed-use building featuring office, retail, and restaurant tenants, located at 3600 Blake Street.
“After a 30+ year career in the investment industry, I decided to do something completely different – open a restaurant,” says Charles Murray, owner of Slater’s 50/50 Denver. “I fell in love with Slater’s back in 2010 and visited often, as my travels took me to Southern California. In 2018, I signed on to partner with Slater’s to bring the concept to Colorado – and RiNo specifically – as I felt it would fit well in the neighborhood. Ultimately, our vision is to continue growing the brand and adding more restaurants across the state, both in Denver and in other areas.”
Slater’s 50/50 was founded in 2009 and built on a passion for all things burgers, bacon, and beer. The restaurant quickly became famous for its original 50/50 patty made of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef, with the menu evolving to include an array of inconceivably “slaterized” items like award-winning burgers, loaded flatbreads, over-the-top salads, amped-up milkshakes, and a wide array of beers on tap. Fan-favorite menu items include the iconic Original 50/50 Burger, ice cream-topped PB & Jellousy Burger, the Ultimate S’more Shake, and the Hickory-Smoked Bacon Bloody Mary. In addition to the classics, the Denver restaurant will feature unique and locally inspired menu items like the Flatirons Bowl, RiNo Wrap, Gold Nugget Tots, Java Jamboree Shake, and The Revenant Burger featuring a custom-blended patty of wild boar, elk, antelope and venison topped with rosemary bacon, smoked gouda, bitter greens, roasted tomato, sautéed mushrooms, garlic aioli and chili-berry compote, served on honey wheat bun.
Slater’s 50/50 Denver is open for lunch, dinner and happy hour Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. F
Slater’s 50/50 operates 12 restaurants in Colorado, California, Nevada, Texas, and Hawaii, and has multiple restaurants being built and in development across the country. The restaurant concept is owned by Elite Restaurant Group, a multi-concept operator focused on fostering growth for emerging restaurant chains, which plans to aggressively grow the Slater’s 50/50 brand across the U.S. in the next few years.
