I am no longer a White Castle virgin. Â That’s right, it happened. Â Last night I experienced my first White Castle slider, White Castle cheeseburger, White Castle A1 slider, White Castle bacon cheeseburger and White Castle fries. Â In other words, I got my White Castle on. Â I immediately had a combination of interesting scenes go through my mind including a little Harold and Kumar mixed with the White Castle Under Cover Boss episode I watched recently, both very different yet intriguing. Â With that said, my first White Castle experience was fantastic.
The lady that took my order was fun, quick and commented on the variety of White Castle foods I ordered. Â When I told her it was my first time she smiled and welcomed me. Â Even the lady that yelled out my order for me to pick it up was pleasant, fun and professional. Â I could hear the group of workers busily doing their respective jobs and all seemed to be enjoying themselves. Â So far, so good. Â Now it was time to eat.
First off the fries looked like oven baked frozen fries and tasted about the same. Â Not that there’s anything wrong with the frozen grocery store fries but I’ll say there’s nothing special about White Castle fries and I don’t see myself craving them any time soon. Â The White Castle original slider on the other hand was very fun. Â I really had no idea what to expect and at first glance it looked rather plain but when I had my first bite (nearly half of the slider so order a few) and the uniquely steam grilled beef mixed with light onions and vivacious pickle hit my taste buds I was hooked. Â Very unique, very interesting and as I sat there for a moment I decided that very good was also coming to mind.
Next was the A1 slider which was missing the pickle but had onion and steam grilled beef. Â It was overwhelmingly A1 steaksaucy so I’m glad I’m ok with that, no other flavor was present. Â Next was the White Castle cheeseburger. Â As good as the original slider but with cheese. Â I think it was my favorite. Â I finished the whole thing with my White Castle bacon cheeseburger and it was fine, thin sliced “fast-food” bacon which left a hint of bacon goodness on the palate but no bacon thickness, more like a flavor addition to the cheeseburger. Â Overall, the onion and steam grilled beef mushy mixed well with the crispy pickles and I’m now an official White Castle fan. Â It was also quite fun to see the quantity and which people liked to order their sliders:) Â Great price and unique taste. Â Thank you White Castle. Â If you ever come to Utah I can see myself being a frequent guest. Â White Castle experience complete!

I grew up in Chicago Loving White Castle hamburgers….Wish we had one down here in Texas…..McKinney, Tx…..They just are not the same frozen…Fresh is the best!!!!!
My dad was a white castle lover. Back in the day… 1950’s one Sunday, after church, he took me to a Castle on Chicago’s South Side. Before we went in, he sat me on a fireplug and spent time telling me to breathe in deeply. Of course we were downwind from the Castle, but it was close. When I smelled the air my mouth started watering. By the time our White Castles were served, I was famished. That day, I ate eight burgers, there were no french fries at that time. That was the day I fell in love with those square little gems. I don’t live in Chicago any longer but my freezer has a fresh box of White Castle Cheesburger’s just waiting. Even at my age, I still need at least one fix a week. Love those little guys.
