This place is really easy to miss tucked back on a less traveled street....but you will be sooo sorry you didn't catch it. Really great food, atmosphere and value. The wraps are the best in Traverse City and of course their burgers are mouth watering. Lunch for 2 less than $20.00.

Several reviewers really liked Slabtown's burgers, but disliked the French fries. We loved them both. My wife had a TC Cherry Burger topped with dried cherries, blue cheese, mayo and grilled onions while I had a Sweet Lincoln burger featuring bacon, Swiss cheese, grilled onions and garlic honey mustard. We may have had better burgers somewhere else, but Slabtown's were as good as they needed to be to make us happy and soon-to-be repeat customers. As for the fries, they are golden brown and fried perfectly for those who care less about having crunchy fries than having fries that taste like they came from potatoes. Those who like fries like McDonald's serves, probably should skip the fries at Slabtown. The employees were cheerful and seemed to be very efficient. We liked the place a lot.

The burgers are OK and soups are good. Like that they serve locally made soda. But we probably won't be returning to Slabtown. The reason is that the last 3-4 times the fries were awful - soggy with grease and not cooked properly. Maybe they need to keep the oil hotter or something. A decent burger isn't worth it if the fries are soft, soggy and inedible, so we probably won't go back.

This place specializes in all kinds of sandwiches and unique hamburgers. They also feature local flavors of soda. Your meal is served in a lunch sack adding to the folksy feel. Very friendly wait staff.
