White Castle Makes Me Sick

Aug 20, 2001
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Open 24 Hours

Cons:Food is awful

The Bottom Line: Eat here and you'll be sorry!


White Castle is a chain of burger fast-food restaurants that most people are aware of. In case you haven't experienced the "unique" taste of White Castle yet, let me tell you a few things about it first. This is how White Castle explains its burgers:

"White Castle burgers are steam grilled on a bed of onions, 30 burgers at a time, served hot on a soft, white, steamed bun with a single slice of dill pickle. To break it down even more, the freshly baked buns are placed on the top of the burgers and onions to absorb the delicious steam grilled flavor. The 2.5" square patty made with USDA inspected 100% beef has 5 evenly spaced holes which allow the steam to completely pervade the burger, enhancing flavor and allowing the patty to cook faster."

After reading this description, you would think these burgers would be delicious. But after eating there for my first time, I will tell you a secret...It was disgusting!! I absolutely LOVE fast food burgers at all the other franchises, but these burgers weren't not in the same league.

First of all, White Castle's burgers looked funny. They were very small, on a cheap tasteless greasy bun. The burger meat looked terrifying. It was SOOOO thin, gray and smooth; very unlike any burger I am used to. The texture was soft and chewy and really didn't seem like beef at all. I decided to try a bite and was horrified. The taste reminded me of what Spam might taste like...it tasted like some sort of meat but NOTHING like any burger I had had before. I absolutely hated the burgers!!

The side items seemed to be ok. The fries I had were typical french fries and tasted very good. I exchanged my burgers for chicken sandwiches and was somewhat pleased with them, although every fast food chicken sandwich I have ever had is better tasting.

All in all, I was disgusted by the burgers at White Castle, and only mildly pleased with the chicken sandwiches. I suggest not eating here unless you want to get seriously ill!
