Our family loves food and when my husband heard that a White Castle was coming to Orlando, he was dying to try it. We waited a while though because the first few weeks it was insanely busy and the line was wrapping around the building at times! Even when we went, still insanely busy but more like the busy we are used to when it comes to living in Orlando.
I had never had White Castle outside of the frozen kind that you can get in the store. My dad used to tell me all the time stories about eating at White Castle when he was younger and when we found they were sold in the frozen aisle, he told me I just had to try one but that they were nowhere near as good as the original. He wasn’t lying!
We tried all kinds of goodies!
First up was the classic burgers! My husband wanted to eat a whole pack to himself but, I told him we had to share. So we got about 6 of them with a few fries. HEAVEN! I love a good burger but these are definitely the perfect size to just pop in your mouth. I don’t particularly like onions but these didn’t bother me at all. It was definitely better than the ones that I had been eating for years from the frozen section.
Next up was some loaded fries! If you have seen my other posts about food spots you know that I love loaded fries and these are no exception! So yummy and cheesy.
Of course we had to try the chicken rings because no trip with my kids would be complete unless we had some form of chicken on the table. The kids loved them of course but myself and my husband totally finished them because we were obsessed too!
White Castle is celebrating 100 years!
Can you believe it? 100 years of serving up your local community some yummy burgers, breakfast items, chicken rings, and fries. In honor of that they released their 1921 burger which is your beloved White Castle burger with cheese, lettuce, tomato. We also got the birthday cake on a stick and the kids definitely enjoyed that because they kept telling me they had pops. We are a total desert family if you haven’t noticed. Cakes, cookies, brownies, give us them all!
The Orlando location is the world’s largest White Castle and it shows!
With both indoor and outdoor seating and a huge kitchen where they are just constantly busting out only the best of the best burgers for their customers, this location is for sure large! There was enough seating for us to not feel like we were on top of the person behind us or next to us which is key when you are eating out with children. Sometimes fast food spots can be a bit claustrophobic but, I did not get that vibe from here AT ALL.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and left feeling full and definitely ready to plan our next visit! Check here to see if there is a Castle near you!
