Mark you calendar, folks! This summer two local business, Nine Pin Cider Works and Slidin' Dirty Food Truck are teaming up to quench your thirst & appetite on select Thursdays. Last night was the first one (it was fantastic) and they will continue starting at 4 pm on May 29th, June 5th and 12th, and July 10th and 24th.


Head on into Nine Pin and grab your cider first, you'll run into the owner, Alejandro, as he pours your choice of cider. I chose the original - it was so refreshing!

Then walk outside to the food truck in the loading dock area and place your order. The sliders come out super fast, so don't wander far!

The Slidin' Dirty food truck specials rotate on a frequent basis, but you can locate the main menu items here.  

 Yesterday they had:

(AMAZING) Avocado Fries
Dirty Dippers
Arugula Salad

The Dirty Hottie: Pepper jack, arugula, jalapeno, tomato, red onion, avocado, chipotle cream
The Dirty Cowboy: Cheddar, bacon, arugula, tomato, jalapeno, friend onion, BBQ sauce
The Dirty Da Vinci: Provelone, arugula, roasted red pepper, friend onion, pesto, balsamic reduction
Buffalo Bacon Ranch: Cheddar, bacon, arugula, tomato, fried onion, buffalo ranch.
Old Faithful: Cheddar cheese, arugula, tomato, red onion, pickles, ketchup, mustard

They set up small tables both inside and outside, so get there early and find yourself a seat.

These avocado fries are wonderful. They have a perfectly crisp outside with a soft and creamy center. They give you the option of a chipolte or horseradish cream sauce, get both.

You can get two sliders & an appetizer for $10, a pretty great deal if you ask me. These are decent size sliders, too, so they'll fill you up!

I just can't get enough of these little beauties...they're masterpieces on buns!

I really can't decide which one is my favorite so I'll let you be the judge.

Share your photos & experience at the next event using the hashtag #CiderAndSliders on Thursday May 29th!

Be sure to keep up with businesses on social media!

    I can't wait to go to the next one, looks like a really affordable good time. Do they have any chicken sliders?

  2. Hi Julie!

    Yes they give you the option of chicken or beef!

  3. Avocado fries!! Sounds bizarre, I can't even imagine:)
    Would be amazing dipped in sweet chilli I'm thinking.

    1. Hey Nicole,

      They're deeeeelicious! :)
      Definitely give them a try. I've made avocado fries before & baked them instead of frying...they still come out super crispy if you use Panko bread crumbs & sweet chili sounds like a good dipping sauce!


Thanks for stopping by The Simple Treat! I hope you enjoyed my latest post!
