Creative Loafing's Slider Showdown 2017

Don't sweat the small stuff–eat it! Small burgers, that is.

We kicked off the 3rd annual Tampa Bay Burger Week at the inaugural Slider Showdown, where local restaurants put their best miniature sandwich recipes to the test and competed to win the title of "Tampa Bay's Best Sliders" as voted on by YOU.

Attendees sampled their way around sliders made by the Tampa Bay area's best restaurants as you judged each tiny little morsel all for the sake of naming the best sliders in the Bay! Plus attendees got their hands on a copy of CL's annual Burger Issue the day before it hits stands!



Thank you to Tampa Bay video studio, Roundhouse Creative, for capturing all the fun!
