I was a little bit sold on this place from the get-go when I clicked that link to the menu and saw they had burger + fries + beer combos. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a sucker for a great deal! And in general, I don’t know why burgers wouldn’t come with fries to begin with. It’s almost blasphemous.

Blogging about burgers though? Well, this was my first time, and although I was slightly intimidated, that trusty ol’ burger hat put all the feels at ease.

I also liked that this place had some unique burger toppings! Brie on a burger? Sold. Crispy onion strings?! More sold. Bonus points to Sloane’s too that they were excited for us to take over their patio that they gave us a special menu… and these burger + fry + beer combos.

I roll up to Sloane’s with a few friends, and we’re pleasantly surprised by the environment – a cute, home-y feeling patio. I know we can be an overwhelming bunch, but the service was pretty good considering. The portion size was good, although the burgers were a little on the luke-warm side. I ordered the Brie burger and was pretty happy with my selection. Out of a ranking of best burger I’ve ever had and worst burger I’ve ever had – it ranked at pretty good! In my conversations with others, the reviews were fairly mixed on the burgers, but no one seemed overtly disappointed.

I would definitely go back to Sloane’s, but would like to try some of the other food on their menu!

Additional Comments:

Mike C.: Love the vibe, the staff’s enthusiasm.

Alex Waters: The only burger I’ve ever had to chase down Brayden to get a ballot to vote for a burger. I liked it that much (The Bernard).

Edwin Cox: Hmmm, basic. Like a Big Mac patty without the special sauce!

Ryan M. Carroll: Easily my fave burger of the year. I would definitely come back.

Lily Kline-Koenig: Awesome!!!

Danielle Mignogna: Beautiful space, happy to be here!

Brayden: LOVED that damn brie burger. Slap brie on anything and it’s fucking great.

Eric Moromisato: Cozy atmosphere.

Jesse Buensuceso: Great service, great atmosphere, good deal. Burger’s ok…

Erin Okada: The burger was good, but not a huge fan of the super thin patty. Seems like this burger could be $5 cheaper. Great service.

Vince Villanueva: This burger exceeded my expectations. It took the mantra of #BeBest and made it a reality. People say that nothing good happens in the Valley, but they haven’t eaten at Sloane’s.

Brian Vickers: “Yes!!! I am VERY HAPPY to BE HERE!!!” -Prince Akeem (Coming To America)

Luke Phillips: My first BEU – very excited! That being said, my burgin’ may not have been properly satiated at Sloane’s. Great company though!

Alex Valenti: Great patty. Tomato was sog.

Peter Wade: Burger was great and surprising. Cheese was too. Would return.

binks.: I fully reprazent for the local spot, especially since Sloane’s is literally around the corner from my house. The burger was tasty and the fries were better. I will say that the patty seemed pre-made and flat, which we here at BEU do not lovingly abide. I shake my fist at you.

Paul Rocha: Meh. Sorry =(

Talia Rubino: 1) Stoked to live so close to this place. Def will be back to hang and try the Taco Tuesday. Loved the ambiance. 2) Had the burger w/the pork belly. Was tasty and not too heavy but too many crispy onions. 3) Fries were great. And did I mention that I could walk here? Love that.

Casey N.: Happy Halloween!!4 352
