First Look: The Slider House in Rock Hill

The anti-big burger is being cooked up at Rock Hill’s newest restaurant as The Slider House started splitting buns at 9528 Manchester Road on Tuesday, Feb. 23 and will host a grand opening on Friday, March 6. Managing partner Craig Ceranna and operating partner Dave Watchell also own The Slider House in Nashville.


“Dave is from Nashville and has a Slider House by his house, and I wanted one by my house,” Ceranna said. “We have a menu of curated flavors so people can try a lot of different things and not just have one huge burger.” The pair does not plan to franchise but may open second locations in St. Louis and Nashville in the future.


With six beef, five chicken, three vegetable and two pork options – most available gluten-free via lettuce wrap or a gluten-free bun created by Elaia and Olio’s Ben Poremba – there are plenty to choose from. Diners may select one type or mix and match any two sliders, plus a regular side dish like the house chips for about $10. Two specialty sliders will rotate seasonally.


Seven dinner-sized salads are available as are seven starters ranging from the roasted vegetables to wings. For those in a rush or feeding a crowd, cases of sliders, sides, salads and apps are available in quantity for carryout or delivery via a separate entrance.


The Slider House is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. until close. Here’s what to expect when you slide into The Slider House.
