Home Run Sliders goes deep
By Dave Cathey
| Published: September 27, 2011
EDMOND — Major League Baseball begins its postseason Friday, which means it's the perfect time to check out Home Run Sliders, 125 E Fifth St.
The newest concept from Deep Fork Restaurant Group is adorned in baseball paraphernalia and menu items that pay homage to the national pastime. Meanwhile, the cafe focuses on one of the food industry's hottest commodities: The slider.
Made famous by White Castle, the slider is simply a miniature hamburger. The benefit is the variety. The only time we're usually able to try more than one flavor or burger is at our own backyard cookout. Like its cousin S & B Burger Joint, Home Run Sliders offers a multitude of flavor combinations. Unlike S & B, Home Run caters to more of a family setting.
The restaurant opened in spring but recently was turned over to the care of general manager Elena Farrar, who has been the driving force behind Deep Fork's wildly successful Wedge Pizzeria concept.
Farrar said her first move was to lower the prices at Home Run Sliders.
“I thought we could offer a better value,” she said. “And I also simplified the menu and shored up the beer selection.”
A ponderous menu hand-written on a chalkboard above the counter has been erased. Diners can now take a look at a pared down menu as they wait in line.
Sliders are $3 each, two for $5, three for $7.25 and four for $9.75. Make any meal a combo, including fries and drink, for $2.50.
The sliders range from simple beef and cheese to lush prime rib with Swiss cheese and horseradish.
In between you'll find chili, guacamole, a Theta, bacon and blue cheese and a play on hot wings. There's even a veggie burger, which is a relief to those of us with vegetarians within our covey.
