Tucked away in Mahboula stands a small, but mighty, burger place dubbed Proper Sliders. A small location, the seating is limited yet superbly cozy and reminiscent of a childhood spent at local carnivals. Although you can go enjoy your meal there, Proper Sliders is a delivery concept that promises you reasonably priced, fresh, hot food in forty-five minutes. Their beautifully labeled packages make for a gorgeous delivery pack – but the actual ambiance of the place is not to be missed. With natural wood accented with pops of red and hints of white, the décor is that of a fun fair with ticket stub-like menus. Take a seat and enjoy a proper slider with a super creamy shake.
High quality chilled meat is the essential ingredient to a good burger. That, and making their patties fresh coupled with premium quality toppings and beautifully baked bread are what make Proper Sliders’ burgers deliciously special. So we walked in, took our seat by the window and grabbed some menus to decide on our orders. The general atmosphere at Proper Sliders is that of an old-school diner mixed with the fun of the fair. Upbeat music and a simple but to-the-point menu with delicious options but a lack of dessert choices. Why, you wonder? Because their shakes are glorious and decadent enough and there are lollipops on the table for you to grab on the go!
Once you have your order figured out, head to the counter and order your sliders. We each ordered three sliders, Chili Fries, Proper Onion Rings and a shake each – yum! Sold singularly, you’re given the freedom to mix and match your favorite sides for the day. Adding to your sliders a shake and some sides, you’ll surely be satisfied at the end of your meal. We sat back down and waited for our meals to be prepped. Made-to-order, each slider, shake and side is prepared fresh for you to enjoy. It took us no time at all to decide on what we wanted although everything on the menu was extremely compelling.
Naturally, we went for their namesake slider, The Proper Slider. We also tried the Proper Bacon Slider, the Proper Spicy Slider, and the Proper Grilled Chicken Slider. Consisting of one beautiful gourmet patty, the sliders were absolutely delicious. Their condiments and salad toppings were fresh and perfectly complimented each slider. Their namesake had the basics – yellow cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles topped off with their secret Proper Sauce. All their condiments are proper and pair brilliantly with every slider you order. For the Proper Bacon Slider, the Proper BBQ sauce and crispy bacon made it juicy and delectable. The Proper Spicy Slider was a whole other level! With Monterey Jack cheese, chopped jalapenos and Proper spicy mayo. With the perfect amount of spice, this slider delivered on both heat and flavor.
As for their Proper Grilled Chicken Slider – other than the fabulously marinated chicken breast, you get a beautifully golden and crunchy onion ring alongside the cheese and BBQ sauce – divine! The onion ring gave the slider an added dimension and a beautiful crunch. Our sides, were simple – Proper Onion Rings and Proper Chili Fries. Their Proper Onion Rings are fried to perfection. Golden and crispy, they come with a side of their super secret and wonderfully tangy Proper Sauce as a dip. The Proper Chili Fries were in a league of their own. Perfectly golden fries topped with succulent homemade chili, delicious melted cheese, chopped jalapenos and onions, then finished off with some Proper mustard. The homemade chili on its own was beautifully prepared and the added toppings gave the entire dish a truly wonderful depth.
Since there are no dessert options at Proper Sliders, we went for one of their perfectly proper shakes – one each that is. Our shake of choice was their Lotus Shake. What is a shake, and a proper one for that, if it’s not creamy and decadent – and this one did not disappoint. Made to absolute perfection, the Lotus Shake combined the Lotus spread with actual Lotus biscuit crumbs and so much cream! Filling and fulfilling, their shakes are spectacular and became a fast favorite of ours. Take your time with them and enjoy your cozy surroundings – it’s totally worth it. Once you’re done and about to leave, grab a Chupa Chups with the flavor of your choice and enjoy this nod to childhoods past or share the love with your little ones. And remember, proper ingredients do make for Proper Sliders.
