You may think you know Serious Eats contributor Dennis Lee pretty well from reading his reviews of burgers, Chicago lunches, and chain pizza, but you can't truly know Dennis until you've watched him eat at White Castle by himself. More

We Spend Valentine's Day at White Castle

A Hamburger Today Niki Achitoff-Gray 10 comments

When work called my boyfriend out of town this Valentine's Day, I decided to nip the moping in the bud and embrace my newfound freedom. What better way to shed all pretense of candlelight and chocolates than to make a reservation with one of my girlfriends at White Castle? More

Reality Check: Crispy Jalapeño Slider, Crispy Jalapeño Chicken, and Sweet Potato Fries at White Castle

A Hamburger Today Dennis Lee 21 comments

White Castle is often a divisive issue between my friends and me. Some of them wave their fists in the air, shouting, "If I ever see a White Castle slider, I'll throw rocks at it!" Then, my other friends whisper, "I love White Castle," as if they just admitted Steve Guttenberg was their favorite actor. For the most part, White Castle and I are, uh, friends that don't see each other very often, and only meet up while we're drunk. Then the next morning, after a long night together, I smell like onions and regret.

Since White Castle recently came out with new Crispy Jalapeño Sliders and Crispy Jalapeño Chicken sandwiches, and, as a bonus, their seasonal sweet potato fries are out too, I had to pay a visit to my old friend. It's like White Castle had triplets and I was obligated to see them.

White Castle Fan Sues Chain Over Uncomfortably Small Booths

A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 8 comments

290-pound White Castle fan Martin Kessman filed a lawsuit against White Castle after they "repeatedly broke promises to make the booths in his local eatery bigger," reports New York Post. He made his first complaint to White Castle about the uncomfortable booths at the location in Nanuet, New York, over two and a half years ago—booths that he says violates the civil rights of people who are fat, pregnant, or handicapped—but nothing has changed since then. White Castle spokeswoman Jamie Richardson told the Post, "Kessman could have approached a store manager and asked for a regular chair." More

Burger Love in Social Media

A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 2 comments

From social media consultant Jason Falls comes this chart illustrating reception of major burger brands in social media based on volume of conversation, sentiment, and passion, using data pulled by ConsumerBase. In-N-Out had the most volume, but came in second for positive chatter right behind Five Guys. White Castle was the most polarizing between love and hate, and Wendy's was most disliked, although not passionately so. Read more at Falls' site, Social Media Explorer. More

Taste Test: The Best Fast-Food Breakfast Sandwiches

Taste Tests Erin Zimmer 130 comments

Even people who swear they won't touch fast-food seem to make exceptions for breakfast sandwiches. Something about the combination of egg, melted cheese, salty meat, and toasted bread is so satisfying, not to mention a lifesaver on those especially rough mornings. You go from zero to feeling-more-like-a-real-person in just a few bites. We tried sandwiches from 11 different chains, and were surprised when only White Castle fried a fresh egg in front of us. More results and photos of the favorite English muffin, bagel, ciabatta, croissant, and toast 'wiches. More

What's so special about it? It's not a freestanding White Castle, but a shop that sells water ice and hot dogs. ...Hm. He checked out the goods to report back to the AHT community. More

World's Strangest Fast-Food Items

Fast Food Carey Jones 39 comments

Photograph from Tavallai on Flickr The magicians at fast-food chains come up with all sorts of edible creations--each one a little less likely than the last. The San Francisco Weekly lists ten of the world's weirdest, including the White Castle "chicken ring," a Tuna Pie (erk) at Jollibee in the Philippines, and Pita Snacks from Jack in the Box. But are these really the strangest ones out there? I think Domino's Bread Bowl Pasta definitely qualifies. The Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme, too. And there's always McD's--looking beyond our own borders, McDonald's in Hong Kong has served seaweed-flavored French fries; New Zealand, a Quarter Pounder topped with egg and beetroot; and in the Philippines, sweet tomato pasta with hot dogs...
