Default White Castle

White Castle opened their first store in Las Vegas yesterday. People waited on line for over 2 hours to get some. At one point they ran out of food and it took another couple of hours to get restocked! Imagine how a White Castle would do down here? As we used to say in The Bronx at 3am in the morning.

I could not care less for White Castle hamburgers in Las Vegas. However, there is a Krispy Kreme doughnuts store on Fremont Street about 1 block from The Golden Nugget hotel casino. Fresh and warm with the drippy icing - now, that is GOOD!!!

As kids, We went to the White Castle on Bruckner Boulevard in the Bronx. That was after collecting empty soda bottles for their 2 cent deposits to cash in first.An empty beer bottle worth 5 cents was a real "find". Sometimes, it would take us an entire day to make up the Money needed to rent a bike for .25 cents an hour and buy a few burgers. I believe they were a nickel.

Krystal's in Leesburg & Ocala are similar, but not a real White Castle!

Today The Original Slider Single $0.78
In 64, in NJ I think it was $0.12.
I think I would order 6 at a time for myself.
I never tried the one they sell in the frozen food department. Has anyone else?

Between construction workers and villagers, a new one here might work.

Surprising they opened in Vegas so far away from the next closest White Castle (1500 miles). I would think quality control would be a challenge. But, I did get my White Castle fix in Ohio at Christmas time. Krystal burgers and White Castles in the grocery frozen food section are no substitute for the real, fresh of the grill slider.

Funny, a Krispy Kreme opened in R.I. about 7 or 8 years ago and didn't last a year. Any donut shop up this way has a hard time competing with Dunkin Donuts, not so much for the donuts but for the coffee.

I think its a matter of where you grew up as to your preference for White Castle or Krystal. I grew up in the south so have always had a taste for Krystals. When my sister-in-law came in from London she thought those Krystal burgers where the most vile food she has ever encountered and couldn't manage to even force one down! I have since threatened to vacuum seal some and global express them over the pond to her..lol.
