I am no longer a White Castle virgin. That’s right, it happened. Last night I experienced my first White Castle slider, White Castle cheeseburger, White Castle A1 slider, White Castle bacon cheeseburger and White Castle fries. In other words, I got my White Castle on. 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. 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. When I told her it was my first time she smiled and welcomed me. Even the lady that yelled out my order for me to pick it up was pleasant, fun and professional. I could hear the group of workers busily doing their respective jobs and all seemed to be enjoying themselves. So far, so good. Now it was time to eat.
First off the fries looked like oven baked frozen fries and tasted about the same. 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. The White Castle original slider on the other hand was very fun. 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. 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. It was overwhelmingly A1 steaksaucy so I’m glad I’m ok with that, no other flavor was present. Next was the White Castle cheeseburger. As good as the original slider but with cheese. I think it was my favorite. 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. Overall, the onion and steam grilled beef mushy mixed well with the crispy pickles and I’m now an official White Castle fan. It was also quite fun to see the quantity and which people liked to order their sliders:) Great price and unique taste. Thank you White Castle. If you ever come to Utah I can see myself being a frequent guest. White Castle experience complete!
