The title says it all. At 1 a.m. coming back from a distant city on a late flight, bout to head home and unwind...White Castle offers the hint of elegant mediocrity. Ya it's an oxymoron...because White Castle IS THE oxymoronic idea of a burger and fries. Don't argue it as a competitor to Wendy's or Mickey D...White Castle is it's own little world...Krystal? Ok, similar. But that's a hair splitting discussion...And forget Harold and Kumar...A hot dozen cheeseburgers, steamed bun, meat-loaf like burgers, a taste of pickle and condiment...It's like 21 year old scotch, an acquired taste. For the hard core...Try left-over White Castles in an Omlette! You WILL be amazed and want to always have a few around for that beery special breakfast!

Always heard that White Castle burgers(sliders) were almost the same as Krystal hamburgers in the Southeast.. Not quite. The woman running the grill had dumped a pile of re-hydrated onions in front of the grill and used the spatula to 'brush' them like a broom back onto the grill. They will add mustard like a Krystal burger, but it still doesn't taste the same. The fries were low cost, cheap quality, crinkle cut fries. Comparing them to Krystal and seeing the superior quality in Krystal was worth the trip.

It's White Castle sliders!! What else can I say. I love these things. Friendly staff and awesome mini cheesburgers that we all know and love. Great after a night out on the town.

Hadn't been to a White Castle in years. Was surprised to see that they have taken on the "slider" nickname as the burger's official name. I only went there so my son-in-law could visit an American fast food icon. The menu has expanded since my wife and I last ate there, and there were several surprises. French fried onion sticks instead of rings. Jalapena sliders. We actually enjoyed the food. Hey, it's sliders, so you can't expect gourmet cuisine. My wife is even saying she would like some more jalapena cheeseburgers, but we live in Japan, so that is not possible. This was a "memory lane" type of lunch bringing back memories of days long gone.
