Slater’s 50/50 seems to be on a mission to get everyone on the planet to crave their food. I mean, they make their burgers with 50% beef and 50% bacon (hence the name) and everyone loves bacon.
Now they’re making a Sriracha Burger or, as they call it, “the ultimate tribute to the most amazing condiment known to mankind.”
And boy, is it Sriracha-y.
It’s made with a Sriracha infused 50/50 patty, Sriracha glazed bacon, Sriracha coleslaw, Sriracha sautéed mushrooms, Sriracha mayo, and pepperjack cheese which is then drizzled with Sriracha and served on a Brioche bun.
Want one? Well, the Sriracha Burger debuts Monday, December 9th at all locations for $10.95.
If you’re keeping tabs on the Sriracha battle going on between the factory and the residents of Irwindale, then you’ve likely been mourning because all signs point to the factory shutting down due to complaints of health issues from the fumes.
However, if this banner that went up outside the factory is any indication, it seems the owner isn’t planning to go quietly.
Stay tuned. We’ll report more as this story heats up.

Back in October, the city of Irwindale sued the nearby Huy Fong Foods factory over Sriracha. It sounds weird, but the factory was giving off such a noxious and spicy smell that it’s been causing residents in the area to suffer headaches. And now, a judge has ordered a partial shut down of the factory. Huy Fong Foods tried to argue the offensive part of manufacturing – grinding jalapeno peppers for the key ingredient – is past because harvesting season is over.
No word yet on what all of this will mean for Sriracha sauce availability. I’m going to stock up just in case. I mean, if nothing else, the stuff is probably effective as a zombie weapon – hot sauce in the eyes hurts.

Love Sriracha? That’s great. Do you know who doesn’t like Sriracha? The entire city of Irwindale, California.
The city filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, requesting that a nearby Huy Fong Foods factory (where Sriracha is made) shutdown temporarily due to a pervasive chili odor that was emanating from the plant. Local residents were complaining of burning eyes, irritated throats and headaches. The LA Times cited an incident that one family had to move a birthday party indoors because the spicy stench was just too strong.
Huy Fong initially made efforts of find a solution to the spicy odor, but had since denied that there was even a problem to begin with.
Until the company can find a way to minimize the smell, Irwindale will pursue temporary closure of the plant.
Even though sriracha sauce makes most things better, it’s not good added to water. I haven’t tried it myself, but I feel confident saying it’s not going to be tasty. Fear not though! You can still incorporate the best hot sauce of them all with your water intake by drinking from this Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce water bottle! ThinkGeek is selling the 16oz container in a two pack, and it’s sure to set your water bottle apart from the crowd’s.

For some people, hot sauce isn’t just a condiment. It’s a way of life.
So, while some people are content with kitties or flowers or BSG logo on their coffee mugs, there are people out there who will find caffeinated contentment cradling this crimson Sriracha coffee mug to their lips. Maybe those people are even crazy enough to add few drops of sriracha to their coffee to give it that extra kick.
Me? I can’t do the spicy. I was emotionally scarred by a habanero pepper at the age of five. But I know this is definitely just the thing for some of you out there, so head on over to the product page and check it out.
