Surf Sliders Catches Wave Into Delray
Part of restaurateur Jim Taube's mini-empire (Kée Grill, Cool'a Fishbar, Jetty's, Bimini Twist), Sliders is a casual as a pair of flip-flops and almost as affordable. The dining room with its half-indoor/half-outdoor bar sports giant faux-marlin leaping off the wall, four big-screen TVs, exhibition kitchen, lots of comfy booths inside, and tiny tables outside, where you can watch tourists walk blindly into traffic screaming up and down A1A at East Atlantic Avenue.
The menu is short, focused, and (mostly) inexpensive. Sammies (fish and chicken) and (USDA prime Angus) burgers take up a lot of real estate, followed by composed salads from Asian-style grilled chicken to macadamia-nut-crusted grouper, a handful of starters and sides, and specials that include filet mignon tips, pan-seared crabcakes, and grilled salmon. Despite its name, no sliders, though. Burgers and sammies range from $9.95 to $15.95, salads from $15.95 to $16.95, and entrées from $16.95 to $19.95.
Open for lunch and dinner daily. Place bets on which tourist will wind up a smear on the pavement.
