White Castle: A New Era?

White Castle is branching out. Forget the Slyders. Try Thai-style chicken, pesto chicken, minestrone and chicken Caesar salad. Then there's barbeque with brisket, pulled chicken and smoked turkey, baked beans and potato salad. Oh, and pressed sandwiches with Italian meats, turkey pesto, French onion beef, veggies and peanut butter and jelly.

    Thankfully the traditional menu is apparently remaining the same!

    White Castle is the institution that it is because of what it always has been. All these new things they're introducing -- they are plentiful elsewhere, but White Castles are unique.
    I hope, at least, their new barbecue offerings are better than the pulled-pork slyders, which I once saw a woman return to the counter, pronouncing it the most disgusting thing she's ever eaten. Hadn't tried them myself, but that episode sure scared me off. The old standards are the best at White Castle. I already miss the old-design stores from my youth that are just about all gone.

    Indeed their pulled pork slider are horrible - the sauce is overwhelmingly sweet - sickeningly so.

    Their service is already horrendously slow - tripling the size of the menu is not going to help this.

    My only complaint is that they manage to screw up take out orders about 25% of the time.

    Michael Hoffman White Castle is branching out. Forget the Slyders.

    I pretty much gave up on White Castle when my local one refused to put pickle chips on my cheeseburger. Actually, they didn't flatly refuse; they would say yes, then not do it.

    Odd. I have to order mine without pickles or they put them on.
