For a city where White Castle was founded, it’s crazy that there isn’t a location here and sliders aren’t more popular in town. Some places have come and gone, and the latest that has been open in south Wichita for a little under a year is Slider Shak. They’ve been serving miniature little burgers along with some other ones with creative zany takes to reach people of all food preferences.
4628 S Seneca St., Wichita, KS 67217
Open Daily: 11am – 8pm
They have taco burgers, pulled pork, spicy or grilled chicken, chili cheeseburgers and more. The types of sliders seem endless, and they are constantly innovating with different options.
On my most recent visit, I had the Todd’s Triple, which was a triple slider with cheese and onions. My plan was to eat this and head home with the rest of the sliders I eat with my family.
Well, I accomplished the first part and finished the delicious Todd’s Triple. It was truly a mouthful and certainly filling. I knocked it out and then head home, but let the family eat while I took a break. Those three patties were juicy and grilled to give you that backyard BBQ style flavor. The rest of the family tried the chili cheeseburger, charlie waffles (which was a slider with the waffles as the bun), mushroom and Swiss, and spicy chicken.
The kids really loved the fries, especially with their ShakCrack Sauce which was like their homemade version of the Freddy’s sauce offering that spicy, tangy kick. Their fries are thin, but thicker than Freddy’s and crispier.
As for the sliders, they were all fans. The regular cheeseburgers and taco burgers are the two home runs in our household and a must-try on every visit. This go around, they sampled the other sliders, like the Charlie Waffles. They said the waffles were pretty flimsy, and I’m sure the drive home didn’t help. The rest were pretty good, but they couldn’t pick any of those over their staples.
Either the nice part about Slider Shak is it’s affordable, the portion sizes can be tailor made to what works with you best, and there are many options to choose from.
