Sliders in Austin at Reido's

  • b

The GM Steakhouse on Lamar near 6th is a breakfast and lunch place by day. At night it becomes Reido's. Reido himself mans the grill behind the counter. His featured item is the Slider: a very small hamburger better known up north. It's good. Eat several. He makes an interesting bowl of chili, too. There's a dessert that hails from a former college hangout of his - a fried doughnut with ice cream - but I haven't tried it. These seem to be the articles worth testing. I have no affiliation; just a two-time customer so far. I thought that others might be interested.

  1. Thanks for the tip. I live 2 blocks away but had never tried the place. Picked up a bag of sliders last night
    (six for $5:50) and had to go back for more. I also tried the coney dog, which was not as good. I think the chili cheese slider is the way to go.

    1. Just happened upon Reido's late one night by chance in search of steak and eggs & I'm glad I did...
      Have been back several times & can't get rid of the addiction to the sliders.
      Great price and much better than the Cheesecake Factory's offering of the same.
      I don't seem to save any room for the dessert(ice cream donut) because the sliders are soo good.
      No affiliation either.

      1. I just checked out the offerings from the grill at Reido's, and I have to say I was well pleased by the items offered on his simple board of fare. The double slider with cheese was scrumptious, and the fried doughnut with vanilla ice cream was wonderfully wantonly, decadently delectable. All this delightfully, unabashedly unhealthy gustatory indulgence taking place under the very nose of Whole Foods customers! Touche!
