No White Castles around here (central PA) either. Always wanted to try it. They have some mini burgers or something that are supposed to be pretty good.
I can remember when Burger King used to have those mini burgers back when I was a kid. Man those were good
White Castle burgers truly look and smell disgusting. But, my Lord, do they taste so so good.
I read somewhere they named it White Castle so people thought it was like high quality and clean.
Didn't McDonald's start out as a White Castle somewhere that was bought out by, obviously, the McDonald family? I saw documentaries on how KFC, Wendy's, McDonald's, etc started out in business class, and seem to remember something along the lines of McDonald's coming from White Castle. And also, did you guys know that Dave Thomas (The Wendy's guy) also was the guy who pretty much started KFC? The Colonel was pretty much just a gimmick...... after he "created" the secret recipe, he sold the company to Thomas. I don't even think they had 5 restaurants when Thomas bought it........ he was quite the entrepreneur. He was the first to use disposable cups for a fast food joint I think, since he was selling so many drinks they couldn't wash the glasses fast enough.
And that's all for today's edition of "useless trivia".
