The Food Biz: Tiny Sandwiches

Slider House makes debut in Midtown

Published June 13, 2013 by Dana Kopp Franklin | Nashville Post

Soulshine Pizza’s sister restaurant, The Slider House, has opened its doors in Midtown. Soulshine’s co-owner, Dave Wachtel III, launched The Slider House three weeks ago in the space adjacent to Soulshine, which has become a popular, party-happy pizza destination on Division Street.

The Slider House specializes in the little sandwiches called sliders. At the top of the menu are beef sliders, basically little burgers, composed of 3-ounce angus beef patties with toppings. The Shotgun, for example, is a patty topped with house-made chili, cheddar cheese and pickled slaw.

The Southern Comfort, meanwhile, is a spicy chicken slider — a cute little fried chicken filet with a Sriracha-and-honey glaze.

The menu even includes vegetarian incarnations, like the Grill Cheese Capri, which features an oval of fresh mozzarella, a slice of roma tomato and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. There’s also a lineup of hot dog sliders, made with mini all-beef franks.

Each slider is served on a diminutive Provence bun, with the price ranging from $3.50 to $4.25. At lunchtime Monday through Friday, you can get two sliders and a side dish for $7.99.

The Slider House has a full bar and also an interesting list of beers, including a slate of American craft beers and imports served in cans. There’s a patio out front and garage doors that roll up to the summer air. The Slider House (1907 Division) is open 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. daily.
