As the weather turns cold and I remember growing up in Milwaukee, I will never forget the chili at George Webb’s. My friends and I would ride the city bus routes from school. We would meet at George Webb’s all over the County. A small bowl of chili, a grilled cheese, and fries = carb heaven. All had for less than $4. Good friends, good food, and a warm place to read. This recipe embodies Wisconsin style chili, served with sour cream, cheese, saltines, and either spaghetti or macaroni noodles. As the weather turns cold time to revive the chili pot.
George Webb Restaurants are known for displaying two clocks side by side in every restaurant, and there are two stories describing how this came about. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Webb_Restaurants
