Kick Off Slider Power Hour With Some Weird-Ass Sliders

View as Map

Last week when Eater Austin asked y'all to weigh in on your favorite sliders in town, we weren't doing it for gits and shiggles. We were doing it for your personal gastronomical edification, via Burger Week 2013's Slider Power Hour.
