Have had both White Castle and Krystal.  Both good eats.  White Castle building is neater than Krystal's however.

I'll take a dozen with a shake!

Haven't had a White Castle burger in years. Brings back memories.

Rumor has it that the Whitecastle has liver inside......no wonder it's nick named "Sliders"
Betcha can't remember them when they only cost 0.07, The other one Top Hat went out of business.

Yes.  Several sacks full, please.

I used to eat the White Castles all the time up north, but in Florida they have Krystal and they are not the same. Krystals are a cheap imitation of the truely original white castles.

For those die hard WC fans, you can still find them in your most freezer sections of the store.
About $3.50 for 6. Expensive but oh so worth it.

The White Castle burger is the all time food "best buy".  Down five or ten for lunch and you can still taste them through suppertime.
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 4:58:44 AM EDT
If you mix in a good beer binge you will get a outstanding gas...at both ends...LOL

I live close enough to a White castle in South St. Louis that when I mow my lawn, I can smell the grease thick in the air -- their chicken rings and onion rings taste almost exactly alike, but I'm still addicted . . . .[:X*]

One thing about belly bombers,no matter how drunk you got,can,t remember where you been or what you did, upon waking the next morning the one thing you will know forshure is if you ate one the night before.

Of course that was in my younger years

Great snack after a night of drinking!!

White Castle used to sell a t-shirt with the "Belly Bombers" logo on it.

My favorite name, though, is "Rectum Rocket".

Used to have a dog that wouldn't go near a McDonald's burger, but had a real White Castle jones.
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 6:18:47 AM EDT
Sliders, gut bombs or loose stool specials. Nothing better after a drunk.
Oh yeah....
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 6:22:12 AM EDT
In 1982 we paid 15 or 20 cents a piece for em... We used to order 100 at a time... :)
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 6:23:08 AM EDT
Remember buying bags of them after a night fishin' on the White River in downtown Indpls.  My Dad loved 'em, guess I picked up the habit from him.
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 7:42:43 AM EDT
MMMM...white castle...I can still remember passing out from nasuea on the hotel room bed from eating 8 cheese buggers[ no,not miss SPed] a cup of cole slaw and a cup of mashed potatoes[from there sister fast food,the nock-off KFC] at a convention one time,Oh the memories... [puke]

burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp    yea their ok ... Krystals r better [:D]

MMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Can't beat 'em. I've always said some of the best food in the world comes from behind bulletproof glass.
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 8:40:43 AM EDT
Well now you know where all of that crud that is scraped off of the grills at McDonalds and Carls Jr. goes. Oh, except Jack in the Box. They use their grill scrapings in their tacos.
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 8:52:36 AM EDT
VinceU1 (above) reminds me about the Indy WC on W Wash St, just E of the river, by where the Kingans Packing Plt was "back when".  Many a "sackful'n a six-pak for every passenger" cruises thru there long ago  There's a hi-rise Marriot there now I think.

Ahhhh, the aroma never leaves your memory!

Let's call a Spade a Spade.  Those things are no more hamburgers than Taco Bell is Mexican food.  We were in Trenton, MI last year and dropped in to try some.  The place was so nasty and dirty (flies, filth on the floor) that we just walked out.  The bisquick biscuits with a piece of meat in them that they call a burger there were not looking to good.  It looked as though someone with a cold had won a sneezing battle with the glass the "burgers" were behind.

WC can't even compare to Tommy's burgers in Kali at 3 am after you've been on a drinking spree with your pals.  Mmm um good, Tommy's chilli burger or some chilli cheese fries...
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 9:25:20 AM EDT
Call 'em what you want, I still luv 'em.

Haven't had fresh(!?!) ones in a few years. I'm really strung out for some now...

They've also got the best onion rings.

Best served around 3:00 in the morning.
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 9:33:11 AM EDT
Nothing on this earth like a sack full of "sliders".  I love 'em.  I get 'em maybe once every month or so, when a craving hits.

White Castle, it's what you crave!!

Yummy!  Sliders!

If you're ever in the Twin Cities, White Castles are still around.  It's been a few months since I've been at one, but they're still good.

I was at a friend's wedding about 10 years ago in Chicago (Cicero?), and there was a WC there.

Definitely a Yes!
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 11:41:58 AM EDT
hey Bofo,
Yeah that's the one!!!! Strangely enough, my grandma and dad both worked at that Kinguns(never could spell the dang name!!!)  Got LOTS of really good salami from there though![:P]

Back when I was attending Eastern Michigan University, our big thing was to get a couple of sacks of those WC bad boys and a 30 pack of Stroh's (equally destructive on your colon) and make a night of it.

The next day you spent on the toilet, cursing White Castle and Stroh's and promising God you'd never do it again.

But come next week, you always did.

Man, my gut is turning just thinking about it.
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 1:55:10 PM EDT
In all my years, I have never had one of these burgers, much less heard of them.  What am I missing?
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 2:18:07 PM EDT
I'll tell ya what your missing Stubbs.

Maybe 1 oz of square meat with 5 cute little hole in it. 2 oz's of onions  on top of that. 1 pickle slice. All on a bun that looks like a square dinner roll.

Oh did I leave out the part of some of the worst gas you've ever had in your life.  LOL
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 2:44:00 PM EDT


I've never had any gastric distress because of White Castles.  Then again, I stick to Hamburgers only (don't like cheese) and limit my consumption to 6 at a time.

The frozen, packaged ones are great if you zap them right.

Link Posted: 3/2/2001 2:54:36 PM EDT

Give me a Whattaburger!!!!
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 3:05:13 PM EDT
Whattaburger?  Horsemeat with coleslaw between two buns!

Let's rate 'em

1.  In-N-Out Burger
2.  Carl's Jr (Hardees)
3.  Tommy's
4.  Burger King

19. Whattaburger
20. White Castle
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 3:27:50 PM EDT
Yum, White Castles!

The only food you can still taste two days later.  I love 'em, but make sure the bathroom is in working order when I eats them!
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 11:34:58 PM EDT
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 11:37:18 PM EDT
Bootedaddy, you forgot to add a quart of Hudy. That, and a Sack -O- Sliders,will give you the worst case of gas you'e ever had. (In this, or any previous life!) Damn, this makes me hungry![puke]
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 12:36:39 AM EDT

Love 'em at night, hate 'em in the morning.
Ron, you are right about the gas, can clear a room in no time (also great in elevators)[^]
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 2:43:05 AM EDT
Ummm, I've never had the pleasure. Thank God. And, NO! i'm not try'in to start a religion thread.
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 12:13:59 PM EDT
Just reading the subject line has me reaching for the Alka-Seltzer.

We used to eat them by the dozen. Haven't had them for many years. I seem to remember they were somthing like .99 cents a dozen.

It would take a real stretch to call them a hamburger!
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 1:38:35 PM EDT
Picked up a stray dog one midnight shift and since he was a friendly pooch, I let him ride with me. Stopped at WC and offered him some burger, wouldn't eat 'em. Smart dog, wonder what ever happened to him?
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 5:46:20 PM EDT
I remember when they were a nickel at a stand on the far South-east side of Chicago.  I used to get 20 of them for a buck and got the most magnificent case of gas in town.
This was over 50 years ago. Egad, I'm old!
