When I was a kid living in the Minneapolis area I ate them every chance I got. People back then referred to them as "Gut Bombs" but that probably was because people ended up eating too many at one time.

White Castle use to run coupons back in the 50's in the Minneapolis paper offering 10 burgers for a $1.

Don't order a White Castle. Order several. I suggest 3-6 per person. Skip the fries or rings.

White Castle, nickname "sliders". Eat them and a few hours later you will find out why the nickname.

It should on everyone's bucket list.

BTW: Samsclub sells them for those who don't live near the Castle.

Love them

About 50 yrs ago I remember getting Whities for 12 cents each. Used to spend my pay for pulling my neighbors weeds on them.

Back in the day sometimes having a 24/7 food source was deemed worth the "scoots".

Four to Six

That's the perfect meal, along with onion chips. If you're real adventuresome, try the jalapeno cheeseburgers. They're great. grin

When I was a teenager in the late 50's and early 60's, White Castle's hamburgers were 12¢ and cheeseburgers were 15¢. I'd usually get 6 + frys and then, if I was still hungry, go back for 4 more. But I had a cast-iron stomach in those days.

McD's was just getting started in the Indianapolis area then. I think their hamburgers were 27¢ or 29¢ but they weren't as good as White Castle's.

white castle ...

... better than McDonald's any day!

You can always pick up a box in the frozen food section of Safeway or Fry's!

Not the same, but better than nothing.

It's the grease, man

Nothing like a grease-sodden bun holding a tiny burger with tiny onions and mustard on it. It was nothing for me to eat 6 or 10 at one sitting. Heaven, I'm in heaven... What a trip down memory lane.

ps: What makes me think there are a lot of us old-timers on this list?

I can remember a dime apiece

I can remember a dime apiece in the early to mid 50's. Used to eat 1 dozen after delivering Sunday morning papers at about 7 am.

No, they're not. Go to whitecastle.com and see for yourself.

Whitey One-Bites!

No retail locations near me, always hit White Castle if I'm anywhere near one.

The kind you buy in grocery stores are just okay, and a poor substitute for the real thing.

Wow, a nickle? Was that a plain one or one with cheese.

Heartburn has nothing to do with eating WC burgers. When you eat a dozen, you *know* something bad is going to happen. Do you care? No.

Mebbe it's....

Krystals ain't no White Castle

I grew up in NJ and would take a road trip to the nearest WC in what seemed like a weekly event. The nearest one was about 10 miles away, well worth the trip.

Now I live in Florida and nary a White Castle is to be found. People claim that Krystal burgers are the same, but not by a long shot. Krystals have gotten better over the years and are more like White Castles, but there is no subsitute.

I was doing consulting work in Nashville and there was a WC at the entrance to the parking lot that I would frequent at lunch time. Mmmmm.

How much is my burger now?

I grew up in NYC and White Castle had burgers for 16 cents each and 19 cents for cheeseburgers.
Now in Arizona and all I can do is buy them frozen at SAMS Club but it still isn't the same.

Heading to St Louis area in a few months amd wanted the POI file for quick reference if I get close to one.
How much do they cost now for a burger or cheeseburger?

Yeah,

I can remember that. My older brother and his buddies used to ride their bikes down there and have competitions on who could eat the most. It was disturbing.

A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

Just had the #2 combo for breakfast!

2 double cheese sliders, small fries and a Diet Coke. $7.24 on Long Island, all day. (burp....) The local nicknames for 'em around here:

Mighty Whiteys
Belly Bombers
Murder Burgers
White Hassles
Rectum Rockets

It's a love/hate thing. Not many folks I know have had them and "just liked them". grin

...and yes, Krystals are a very far cry from a good old slider!
