JewBoy Sliders at Fareground will also serve up cold sliders (smoked chicken salad, smoked turkey breast, club and tuna), mini latkes and fries (among other fried stuff), border style queso, a specialty caesar salad and more. Pittle’s culinary inspiration comes from both his reform Jewish upbringing near the Texas/Mexican border, mixed with Austin’s culture of creativity and inclusion.
