Travel: Slidin’ Dirty – Schenectady, NY

A buddy and I had a taste for a few tasty brews and burgers. I thought on it for a moment and well sometimes one has to get dirty. I then recommend that we go out to the newest gourmet burger and tasty food joint in downtown Schenectady called Slidin’ Dirty.

Slidin’ Dirty actually started out as a food truck and has gained so much popularity in upstate NY that they opened two bar/restaurants. The first location opened in Troy, NY (2014) also known as the Collar City and the birthplace of Uncle Sam. Pretty neat, huh? The Schenectady (The Electric City) location opened shortly after in 2017. So many were excited to hear the news to get down and “dirty” in downtown Schenectady.

The menu offers a bunch of great sliders and appetizers that really hit the spot. Tonight I went with the Pulled Pork Nachos for an appetizer. These nachos contain house fried corn tortilla chips with cheddar cheese sauce, pulled pork, Pico de Gallo, scallions, corn and black bean salsa. These nachos were seriously great.

I wanted sliders for my main dish so I picked what’s called the dirty trio. One can pick three sliders from the menu, this way one can taste an array of what Slidin’ Dirty has to offer. Yes they offer a bunch! I picked the Bacon Blue, The Dirty Cubano and The Dirty Colonel (as seen in picture). They were all elevated sliders that matched this foodies expectations.

Come to downtown Schenectady for many great bars/restaurants. I forecast that Slidin’ Dirty will be a downtown staple for a long time coming. I encourage you all to come visit downtown Schenectady and partake in some serious eats. I really know and love great food. Great things are happening in the Electric City.
