The Cleanest Restaurant I've Ever Seen

Some of you won't have a clue what I'm talking about and even some who do won't agree but I love White Castle, always have, always will. I think it's a Midwestern thing. I grew up with these babies, many times when we went to my Grandma & Grandpa's house we would have White Castles. And they're always good as a late night snack ;-)
It's also the cleanest restaurant I've ever seen. As I waited for my food this evening (we try not to make this a habit) I noticed how clean everything was in the kitchen. All the polished stainless steel screams clean and the chicken rings rock.

I wish this photo was clearer but I was being pressured by another car as I left the drive thru line...

Do any of you love White Castles???

I love 'em. It's the pickle that makes it perfect. My aunt once found a recipe to make them at home. They were remarkably similar but just didn't look the same. The secret ingredient that made it taste the same: Beef baby food. Eeeuuww.

I have never had White Castle. I just can't bring myself to eat something nicknamed "Sliders". No thanks.

I've never had one before. Wanted to try it after watching Harold and Kumar but there aren't any in California.

I've only ever had the frozen ones from the grocery store. When my daughter was little she loved them!

We have Krystal down here in the South, y'all. Funny, I saw White Castle burgers in the freezer case at the grocery store yesterday. DH likes Krystal burgers, I love the little chicken sandwiches. What I like the most is Krystal stores have the only free wireless Internet access that works on my PDA. BTW, have you seen "Harold and Kumar go to White Castle?"

Ah, the good ole days of White Castle. My Dad used to take us there when my Mom was having her card parties. They have the BEST fries and shakes.

I also remember many a night of heavy drinking or club hopping and stopping at White Castle on the way home....yum! ;)

I'm sorry to say I can't stand White Castle. Where I grew up (Kansas) we didn't have any, and I didn't try them until a couple years ago. I think if you grow up with them then you love them. I do have to say that the fries aren't bad, but I do not like the burgers.

I love White Castle. And ever since I moved from the midwest to CA, I can't get them anymore. But we do have In 'n' Out burger here. Good, but very different.

Nope. Never had White Castle. Well, I think I had the frozen ones but they don't count. I have had the southern version - Krystal burgers frequently throughout my childhood. And whenever I'm visiting the folks I try to get by.

I have seen "Harold and Kumar go to White Castle" and I enjoyed it a great deal.

In and Out burgers do indeed rock in a different way. And Milo burgers in Birmingham rocks in an especially wonderful and different way too.

Mmm burgers.

Belly Bombers! Sliders! Whatever you call them, they're great. White Castle was my very first real job EVER (I won't say when) but we made $2.10/hour (which was 20cents above minimum wage) What is cool is that I do know how to make them...since I live in TX now, and have to wait till I visit up North to get them, this is GOOD!

Anybody remember Little Tavern? Same concept as White Castle, but infinitely less clean :) They used to be in the DC metro area.

I had to add another comment-my MIL said a Krystal in Montgomery, AL was so clean, the stainless steel sparkled. (She does not read your blog.) Just struck me funny, also DH's friend watched Harold and Kumar yesterday.
