Slider’s Gourmet in Lehi, UtahÂ (by Highland) is exactly what the name suggests, a gourmet take on the slider. Â With a fun sign and plenty of seating, it’s probably a good place for a work lunch or casual sit down but just because it’s a slider don’t expect it to be any less expensive than your typical sit down burger place. Â Just know you’ll need 2-3 sliders to fill your stomach. Â Just so you know, I’m not a big fan of sliders because they are mini-burgers and I already prefer maximum-burgers but Slider’s Gourmet still gets a nod so here we go.
Quality meat is a big deal at Slider’s Gourmet. Â If you don’t believe me just ask the manager and be ready for the history and insights that help you better experience the meat you are about to devour. Â With a great atmosphere for a burger place and a very knowledgeable staff, Slider’s Gourmet was off to a good start as I ordered my 3 sliders, fries and drink (yes it’s in the $10 range). Â With my drink in hand I sat down and prepared mentally for the sliders gourmet. Â It didn’t take long for them to be prepared and I helped myself to a variety of toppings as recommended by the manager. Â So far so good.
When the meal was ready I looked and was reminded of my deep hatred of the slider. Â So little. Â But again, it’s about quality not quantity. Â I picked up my first slider and loved the flavor, the bun, the meat, the onions. Â It was delicious but it was over just as quickly as it started, my first slider was gone and I had only two left. Â Next slider, as good as the first. Â It was now time to try the fries. Â They were fine. Â Nothing special, just reliable french fries. Â Finally, it was time to eat my last slider. Â Again, gone in no time.
I’m sure if I were a lighter eater Slider’s Gourmet would be a nice burger experience that would leave me satisfied with my burgerish meal but as a burger lover the thing I wished for most was more sliders without paying more than $10. Â That’s a Five Guys or Smashburger price for much less burger. Â As for the gourmet aspect of Slider’s Gourmet, the meat was pretty darn good. Â Overall, know what you are in for at Slider’s Gourmet. Â They aren’t hiding the fact that they are a place for Slider’s and the price, quality and taste are a little better than Marley’s (the Harley-Davidson diner) but just beware that these really are only sliders. Â Game on.
