Just got back from visiting family over in St. Louis. We were going to the Science Center to check out the Star Trek exhibit :clap2:. Since Courtesy Diner is just a few blocks away and it was lunch time we decided to duck in. It had been a long, long time since I had a slinger. If you don't know what a slinger is it is a hamburger patty, two eggs, hashbrowns covered in chili and topped with cheese and onion. I have to add about a quarter a bottle of hot sauce to mine. It is a St. Louis original and it sure brought back a lot of memories.

I think OT Hodges created the Slinger and yes everal times a year! Think it is most consumed after 01:30. When the bars close....

I believe it was invented by a cardiologist.
