The true patriots at California's Slater's 50/50 are celebrating America's birthday in the best way possible: By running a month long special on a little something they're simply calling "The 'Merica."

This freedom burger is topped with even more bacon, cheese, a fresh egg and bacon thousand island. Why? Because 'Merica.
