Instead of stumbling in to White Castle to get a Crave Case after a night on the town, White Castle could be your night on the town. The steamed burger chain is testing out sales of beer and wine at one location in Indiana. [More]
St. Louis has some odd class of (alleged) criminals! A woman there (allegedly) robbed a White Castle from the drive-thru window, but didn’t even take a Crave Case on her way out. Crazy! [More]
Almost a year ago, our survey-loving siblings at Consumer Reports asked several thousand readers to rate burgers from 18 burger chains and to no one’s surprise, McDonald’s came in dead last. Not satisfied with merely finding the best and worst beef-on-a-bun, CR decided to go for the super-sized option, rating 53 restaurants in five categories to find which ones provide the best food, service and value to customers.

Ever in the technological vanguard — witness the science behind their square burgers and those drop-down ketchup hose thingies — White Castle yesterday announced they are taking online orders. Call it the iCrave? [More]
If your love is true — I’m talking love as deep as what you’ll find in Before Sunset or the hearts of Buffalo Bills fans — it can survive absolutely anything, including the complete forgetting of Valentine’s Day or its utter degradation, which would encompass dinner reservations at White Castle.

Last week, two adventurous Consumerist readers took us up on our challenge to test out White Castle’s experimental BBQ and noodle menus being tested at single restaurants in Indiana and Ohio, respectively. Now, we complete the White Castle Trilogy with a reader’s impressions of the chain’s Decker’s pressed sandwich menu in Lebanon, TN. [More]
In the current issue of Consumer Reports, our science-minded siblings asked readers to rate the burgers at 18 different restaurant chains on a scale of 1-10. [More]
As we wrote last week, White Castle is testing out a new Blaze BBQ menu at one of its restaurants in Indiana. Lucky for us, blogger Kat Jones lives in the area and decided to take us up on our request for a proper review. [More]
Steamed meat purveyor White Castle has dipped its toe into the BBQ world in the past with its “pulled pork sliders.” But now a Castle outpost in Indiana has gone whole hog and become the first of the chain’s eateries to debut its “Blaze Modern BBQ” menu. [More]
If you misspent your youth in a part of the country where White Castle dominates the roadside landscape, the smell of the chain’s onion-and-grease-laden sliders may have a Proustian effect on your olfactory nerve — or your bowels. Now White Castle promises to deliver that aroma on demand, minus the actual belly bombers, via the new White Castle scented candle. And here we thought selling frozen burgers in supermarkets was the worst idea White Castle ever had. [More]
Sure, there’s the Snuggie. If you’re the enterprising sort, there’s the homemade Snuggie. There’s even a Snuggie for your best friend. But when you’ve truly, truly given up on both physical activity and on life, forget a blanket with sleeves. That’s not hardcore enough. What you need is a sleeping bag with sleeves. White Castle is here to help. [More]
Back in June a woman in a personal mobility scooter rolled up the drive-thru at a St. Paul White Castle and was refused service because she wasn’t in a car. The drive-thru was the only part of the restaurant that was open — so she decided to complain to the Minnesota Department of Human Rights. And she lost. [More]
A White Castle in St. Paul, Minnesota, is a 24-hour establishment, but it locks its dining room doors at 11 pm. Unfortunately, its drive-through service is restricted to customers in cars, so the employees refused to serve a 37-year-old woman who pulled up on an electric mobility scooter. Now she says she’s madder than fish grease, which is pretty mad, and she wants to sue them for discriminating against customers who can’t drive.
White Castle has apologized and donated $5,000 to the National Guard after having 25 guardsmen’s (and their family’s) cars towed while they attended a welcome home ceremony at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The manager had given permission for the cars to be parked there, but White Castle had them towed anyway. [Chicago Tribune]
