Chicago Hamburger Company vs. Boomer's Sweet Home Chicago
This week we went to two Chicago-style restaurants to compare sliders, those adorable mini burgers that are so small they slide down your throat. Why Chicago? It's not completely clear but apparently Walter Anderson, the founder of White Castle, wanted burgers to be cheap, so he made them small and called them "slyders." They originally sold for a nickel a piece back in the 1940s. Now White Castle was started in Wichita, Kansas, not Illinois, but the design of the eponymous castle was based on the Chicago Water Tower.
