The popular fast-food palace, founded by Dave Thomas in Columbus, Ohio in 1969, has long positioned itself as the fresh alternative to burger chains content to slap frozen meat on the grill. Having made its name with fresh beef patties, chocolate Frosty's, and Thomas's proudly wholesome image (a tradition carried on by his daughter in the firm's television advertisements), the chain was also among the first to place an emphasis on healthy choices, which in its case include an expanded menu of wraps and four different Garden Sensation Salads. That's not to say you can't still order a cheeseburger, however, and no less an authority than Zagat's claims that Wendy's makes the third-best burger of any chain restaurant in the country. Lately Wendy's has been remodeling its 6,550-plus nationwide locations. Find Wendy's in St. Louis on Voice Places.
The place where fast food began, White Castle was founded in 1921 in Wichita, Kansas by Billy Ingram, who must have been a fresh-onion fan (every White Castle burger is grilled atop a handful of chopped onions). Long known as the home of the original slider, White Castle has continued to crank out the firsts, which include First Place to Offer Fried Chicken in the Shape of an Onion Ring (see: White Castle Chicken Rings), First Fish Slider (not grilled atop onions, but distinctive in its own right), and First to Put Holes in the Burgers So They Cook Faster. Another first really expands on the burger-is-life ideology that White Castle riffs on, namely its Frozen Sliders: mini cheeseburgers that go from your freezer to your microwave and presumably quell any 2 a.m. cravings for food from the world's oldest hamburger stand.
