Stacking Big Flavors on Small Buns since 2014! The humble slider eliminates the paradox of choice for many an indecisive eater. Can’t decide between the classic Boardwalk burger slider, vegetarian Shroomwich slider or Perro Cubano slider dog? Order all three, they’re sliders. That’s the idea behind Sly’s Sliders and Fries.
The economical atmosphere may evoke McDonald’s, but Sly’s Sliders and Fries serves made-to-order food created with real culinary skill. At this no-frills restaurant, which opened last year in an evolving neighborhood south of the historic district, the featured menu items are the $3 sliders with fillings that include smoked brisket and Italian meatballs.
Sometimes good things come in small packages. That’s the case with the sliders from Sly’s Sliders and Fries. The top three sellers include a classic prime beef patty with all the fixings, fried tempura shrimp with pickled slaw, and a vegetarian falafel option that they warn may be addictive.
All of Sly’s sliders are $3, and each of the nine options features unique flavor combinations. I’ve made several visits, and my favorite sliders so far are The Jerk Store, which includes Caribbean jerk chicken and pepper jack cheese, and the Banh U, Banh Mi with tempura shrimp and other items. Sly’s also has slider dogs — small hot dogs about half the size of regular ones. I really like the sliders, but I’ve enjoyed the dogs even more.
Adding to the amazing taste of the food, the fact that it’s an a la carte menu just makes it that much easier to swing by for a snack whenever the craving hits. I can say without a doubt that we will be back – and soon. Better yet, next time you decide you want to go, give me a call and I’ll come with. We can share fries, just stay away from my slider.
For a city with a well-beaten tourist path, Savannah is a relative newcomer to the foodie universe. Sure, there are institutions, like the James Beard-winning Elizabeth on 37th, the un-missable Olde Pink House, and the steadily superb Sapphire Grille, which are all very much on the map. But until recently, it seemed that great eats accessible to everyone everyday were out of reach.
