I worked several years for the man who invented the Pool Room Slaw Burger.The recipe that is posted here is slightly different from the original. As for how to eat the burger, the following is the most popular;fry your burger then put a layer of the slaw over the pattie(as much as you like),then a slice of raw onion, topped off by 4 to 5 dill pickle chips.They are best served on a toasted bun.

My mother helped me make the slaw for the hamburgers because I've never canned anything before. We have eaten these at the pool room when we go to visit my grandmother. They are really good! This recipe tastes like what you get in the pool rooms.

Pretty good stuff. I will make it again; however, it was just a little sweet for my tastes. I will cut down on sugar next time. Reminded me of old fashioned mustard pickles.

I have tasted these burgers, and they really are as good as they say. Wish I had one right now, so maybe I will take a little trip, after all, I am only about 30 miles away.

I am from Chattanooga, Tennessee and this sounded so good that this ole southern gal had to try it. I am sure glad I did. DELICIOUS. I will make these from now on. My husband and I crave them now. Thanks for sharing.

I used to eat these slaw burgers years ago but have been living in Texas for a long period of time. I recently contacted my brother who still lives in Fayetteville and ask him to research the recipe and he sent it to me tonight. I cant wait to try it but will try and cut everything in half to make a smaller amount.
