“Great burgers, cool atmosphere”

Slabtown Cafe and Burgers

Nice little burger place. Heard it was great and had to try it. There is a good selection of wraps and other foods too. We all had burgers. The Slabtown special two patties with grilled onions and cheese with a special sauce was very tasty. The meat was fresh and course ground to give it a good texture. Another plus is that they have Northwoods soda and root beer that is very good. The fries are fresh cut and cooked perfectly.
Inside is a little small but plenty of room for groups of four.

This is an old house with a small area for ordering your food. They are so popular that they have gotten efficient at the ordering process. Then you stand and wait for your bag of food to be called. You can eat inside in small area, outside on tables, or take home. Famous I guess for their burgers but to me a burger is a burger. It is nothing fancy so don't go with high expectations. Go for the experience and if you like it--then you can go back. Felt it was a little pricey also but again -- for the experience.

We had a group of 4 at Slabtown Burgers for the first time. The burgers were great as were the hand-cut fries and the wild mushroom soup. I had the Lincoln burger on a pretzel bun and it was super. We all left full and ready for a shopping adventure in TC.

This place was amazing! The burgers were very tasty and the overall feel of the place was down right home. Will visit every time I’m in town.

Slabtown Cafe and Burgers is located in a cute little house on Front Street, in the old "Slabtown" section of Traverse City. There is not a lot of room inside, but there is plenty of outside seating on the big front porch or under the umbrella tables on warmer days. The burgers are SO worth taking home, if a table doesn't open up while you are there, they are freshly made to your specifications, and are truly outstanding. I had tater tots with them, with a locally made soft drink, and everything was delicious. I can't wait to go back!
