    Downtown Palo Alto has so many wonderful restaurants to dine at that sometimes it’s difficult to choose. Although we’ve passed by many times, we’d never eaten at the Sliderbar. So today we decided to give it a try. Every table was full and the line was out the door – usually a good sign.  We put our names onto the list and strolled down University Avenue and after ~15 minutes I received a call on my cell phone letting me know that our table was ready. The friendly hostess seated us and our waiter came right over. Since it was our first time at the restaurant we had some questions about the menu that boasted of mighty sliders and crafty beers. After we described our beer preference he brought over some samples for us to try.  Once we decided he gave us a little more time to study the menu – which included several types of sliders including beef, pork and chicken. We chose the Hot Chick fresh all-natural ground chicken with Serrano chili, garlic, lime & green tomatillo patty, Serrano chili mayo, gem lettuce, tortilla chips, cilantro & tomato on a multigrain bun.  The food and the beers arrived in short order, along with hot, crispy fries. They offer several dipping sauces for the fries and we choose honey mustard and chipotle ketchup – yum! We were impressed with the freshness of the food. The chicken was freshly ground and the fries were freshly cut. Everything was hot and tasty. We were also tempted by other orders that passed by our table like the Parmesan truffle fries and sticky wings.

    The atmosphere was casual and laid back, with several big-screen televisions so we could watch several sporting events at the same time.

    Their motto boasts of "FOOD that is GOOD for the stomach,
    GOOD for the soul and GOOD for the mind". We will definitely go back in the very near future.
