    Sliders!

    I'm getting a little annoyed at restaurants. Now you go in and they have a 'Slider plate,' which basically consists of 4 or 6 small burgers.

    These burgers are NOT sliders...they are just smaller versions of the burgers you can get at the same place. Putting them on a small bun doesn't make them sliders, dammit!

    REAL sliders cost under a buck, are cooked with onions so thinly sliced its crazy, are usually wrapped in some kind of wax paper, and 99.9% of the time when you get home the bag is covered in grease spots. They are also usually gotten from a cheap looking white building from decades past

    Case in point: I went to the local slider joint last night after bowling. I put 6 bucks on the counter and said, "I want one order of fries, 1 coney (deep fried hot dog! ), and as many burgers as I can get for 6 bucks."

    Walked out with 8 burgers

    If anybody lives in the Detroit area, and hasn't been here...you're missing out big time.

    From your description I think a slider is the same thing as a Krystal burger here. They are delicious, every once in a while. Most people here only eat them after drinking because they are 24 hr, quick, and cheap.

    Yes and no...White Castle and Krystal are generic, mass produced sliders. They ARE pretty damn good at times, but a "real" slider is a whole different world.

    I often hit the White Castle instead of getting the real thing because it is closer and more convenient...but when you're half in the bag and your DD doesn't mind making the 15 mile round trip...a real slider is as good as a filet mignon

    haha...which one? I've been to...Bray's, Hunter House, Telway, Greene's, and I was working last week about 1/2 mile from Bates last week but never made it there

    When I was a kid, my Dad called them "ratburgers," and told me that the onions were rat tails, and the burgers were rat meat. Come to think of it, he still maintains that it is true

    Yes it is! Corner of 11 and John R, iirc.

    A friend of mine worked at Hunter House for years when she was in college. She had to wash all of her clothes from work seperately because they stunk so bad

    No idea, never heard of it. I'm glad to know that there is a slider joint I haven't tried yet!

    That's what I was thinking. I have to be in a good frame of mind to eat them, as it's just about the only food in the US that gives me heartburn.

    I think it is all but impossible...I wish I could tell you otherwise, because making them at home would be great...of course, it would stink up your house for DAYS

    Probably the closest way would be to buy the cheapest meat you can find, shape it into very thin patties about 2.5x2.5 inches, grill up some onions that are about as thick as a piece of dental floss, and do it on a flat grill that you don't clean very often

    I've never tried to, but I do know that White Castle steams their burgers on a flat grill.

    In La.it used to be Royal Castle,(till Al Copelin aka Mr.Popeyes fried chicken,bought them out),and their onions were chopped in such a way a friend from N.La. asked why they put rice on burgers,.The best time I had was after a "party" several of us wound up at one,there was a bet placed,who could eat the most (something like 10 bucks between 5 of us),I won with 18,when I collected I walked up to the counter and asked for 6 to go,NO I didn't eat them,but took them home (they dont know that),I am still there hero(for that anyway).Now I have to go to Ms. for Krystals,which are the closest thing.
