Ah, White Castle! In my town they ran specials with newspaper coupons-5 burgers, onions, pickle and mustard for 48 cents. I think when I was real little it was maybe 24 cents. Imagine-less than a nickel a burger. The car-hop came out in her little white hat with the stripe. After a ball game in the summer my Mom would take us- each boy got his own bag, and she got her bag too but usually had to take some of hers home.

We brought iced tea from home.

Great experience. It was right next door to a brewery, and in the summer the malt stank to high heaven.

Later after I moved away I went back a few times. I was shocked by the amazingly poor teeth that most of the customers had. They spent their paychecks on something besides dentists.

Same experience farther east in White Tower.

Ha

white castles are ok - they're always open when you get that late-night craving, but Id rather have In and Out or Carl's jr.

Either Costco or Sams Club sells big boxes of frozen white castle burgers.

I've tried those frozen white castle's. They just don't taste the same as getting those hot little squares right off the grill. Of course it could be the ambiance that makes all the difference.
