Chicago is the towering metropolis of the Midwest, and one of the great cities of the United States. Founded in 1833, it was among the fastest-growing cities in the world for its first 100 years, zooming from under 5,000 people in the 1830s to over 3 million in the 1930s. Slaughterhouses made up an important part of its early industry, which may be one reason why Chicago retains its rep as one of the best steak cities in the country; when it comes to steakhouses, the city brings its A-game.
