Sliders, Sliders, And More Sliders At Bourbon Street Bar And Grill In Fullerton, California
At the beginning of football season, Bourbon Street began offering sliders as part of their “game day” menu. Within a couple months, the sliders became a local sensation. After football season is over, the sliders will be sliding their way onto the permanent menu along with the rest of the great pub grub and Cajun/creole inspired dishes that you know and love.
Let’s take a look at some of these fine sliders:
Buffalo Chicken ($3.50 each) is topped with bleu cheese coleslaw and served on a grilled sweet Hawaiian roll. It has that vinegary buffalo sauce aroma when it comes to the table so you know it’s going to be good. It is just spicy enough to get the taste buds going. The coleslaw adds a crunchy texture but could use more bleu cheese. Rating: 4.5/5
Cheeseburger ($3.50 each) is topped with thousand island, tomato, red onion, cheddar cheese, basil aioli, and served on a grilled sweet Hawaiian roll. The beef patty has a flavorful grind and is very juicy. The basil aioli is the kicker. The herbaceous flavor is refreshing and matches perfectly with the beefy slider. Rating: 4.3/5
Beer Battered Alaskan Cod ($3.50 each) is topped with Cajun tartar sauce, coleslaw, and served on a grilled sweet Hawaiian roll. This is definitely the lightest of the slider selections. The cod is crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside. The coleslaw adds a creamy flavor and crunchy texture. Overall, it needs something to punch up the flavor – either acidity like vinegar and/or sweetness by adding pineapple into the slaw. Rating: 3.7/5
Fried Mozzarella ($3.50 each) is crusted with panko, topped with sriracha honey jam, basil aioli, and served on a grilled sweet Hawaiian roll. Imagine a baked brie in slider form. The mozzarella has a crispy exterior and creamy, gooey interior. The honey sriracha jam adds a fruity sweetness like a baked brie. The basil aioli adds a touch of herbaceous flavor. Rating: 4.7/5
Fried Chicken ($3.50 each) topped with garlic mashed potatoes, country sausage gravy, and served on a grilled sweet Hawaiian roll. This is my first time having mashed potatoes on a slider and it is great! The mashed potatoes have a creamy texture and perfect garlic flavor. The fried chicken is crispy and seasoned to perfection. The gravy adds a creamy, sausage flavor reminiscent of biscuits and gravy. This slider could use some acidity to really put it over top. A dill pickle would be perfect. Rating: 4.9/5
N’Awlins Burger ($3.50 each) is topped with caramelized onions, gorgonzola, garlic aioli, ginger slaw, and served on a grilled sweet Hawaiian roll. The beef patty has a flavorful grind and is very juicy. The first thing that hits you is the sweet caramelized onions. The creamy, tangy gorgonzola balances out the sweetness. The slaw adds a crunchy texture. Rating: 4.9/5
Pulled Pork Slider ($3.50 each) is one of the Sexy Southern Sliders topped with ginger slaw and voodoo BBQ sauce. The pulled pork is ultra-tender and just melts in your mouth. A little salt would pump up the porky flavor. The slaw adds a crunchy texture. Rating: 4/5
