I remember White Tower burgers in the Bronx - they were just as good as White Castles.

But White Tower's burgers were grilled just the same as any other burger. White Castles are steamed over onions, and they are much, much smaller than White Tower's were. But the ten cent plate of baked beans was pretty good with a White Tower hamburger.

I guess my memory is not as good as yours - I remember them tasting the same and being the same size - I sure do not recall 10 cent beans.  I am going back 48 or so years.

I'm going back longer than that.
 
I used to spend a lot of time at the White Tower at the corner of Crown and College streets in New Haven, Connecticut. The White Tower was a block up Crown Street from Louis Lunch, and the manager was the father of one of my friends.

Dog Boss,
As a Newbee on here, and incidentally, welcome to Roadfood.com, I suspect you have  not yet tried to use the SEARCH FEATURE on here. White Castle has been discussed at length and due homage has been given to New Jersey for it's role in the success and history of White Castle. I suggest you go to the search function under the "Hamburgers' forum and do a search for "White Castle" You'll get all the info you need.

That's probably because they don't flip the burgers at White Castle.

Hmmm...someone posts into a months old, existing thread about White Castle rather than starting a new one and you are giving them a hard time for not using search function? Seems to me like there is an excellent chance they found this thread using the search function!!!

As to your understated suggestion...if anyone is perusing  the internets and doesn't know what a "search" feature is used for, I am fairly confident they won't bother reading (or understand) any newbie primer either. This site, with recent upgrades, has become pretty user friendly, and the search button is pretty clearly labeled.


Also, with the recent upgrade, if anyone attempts to start a new topic on a subject that has already been discussed, when they hit "send" they will be asked to review some prior discussions on the same topic. Despite this new addition, several people, not all newbies, have started new discussions on old topics...meaning you can try to teach an old horse new tricks, but you can't lead him to water...or put him behind a cart...or close the barn door after the beans are in the chili...or something like that.

Tony Bad,
Despite all your assumptions about Newbee's (And Oldbee's) Computer Skills and the Enhanced Web Site, which is, by the way, greatly improved, the point remains ---MANY PEOPLE DON'T know how the Effectively Navigate around this web site. You assume too much since you're so closely involved in the project and obviously have excellent computer skills.
 
You made the Statement,"If anyone is perusing  the internets and doesn't know what a "search" feature is used for, I am fairly confident they won't bother reading (or understand) any newbie primer either."  You can't assume that! Newbee's don't know what they don't know about how this site is set up and how to EFFECTIVELY SEARCH the site. Many times, I don't know how to find what I'm looking for! I can't tell you how many times I've used trial & error methods and STILL not come up with what I'm looking for!
 
This web site is unique and many of us on here have struggled to stay current with all it's developments and understand how to use the site effectively. You may be too close to the trees and need to step back and look at the Forest.
 
Keep up the good work you and others do on the site BUT---------------------------
HEY STEVE, ET AL--WE NEED A PRIMER FOR NEWBEES!!!!

Perhaps you are right, and I assume too much, but what I can tell you based on my experiences here and elsewhere in training and attempting to train people in computer and software use is that those that want to learn find the information and ask questions as needed. Those that just have a passing interest simply want to know how to get from A to B, and will ask for those same directions over and over. They don't really want to learn how to use the system or software, they just want to get where they want to be. I have dealt with people on this site who have written to me several times asking for the same instructions. I know they understood them because they accomplished what they wanted to, but rather than committing the lesson to memory, they got where they were going and emptied the info from their head. These people, who would benefit the most from an instruction manual, will never read one. I have been there. I know.

Tony B,
Perhaps YOU are right, as a matter of fact, you are right. There are those people you describe, The Non-Absorber, Lazy, Don't Want-To Learn types. I've dealt with them all my life too.
But then there's the other group-- The Absorbers, Actively Interested, Want-To-Learn types. Those are the one's that would benefit from a "Newbee Primer". So why not create one for those people? Some of us Old F**t's could benefit also! Let's work on the premise that there are more people who want to learn than there are who don't want to learn.

 So why not create one for those people? 
 


For what I believe to be the most part, "those people" seem to be doing a good job asking for assistance either on the forum or via private messages.
And speaking just for myself...I don't get paid for doing this and put in enough time already, so writing a how to guide that may or may not be used is not a challenge I am willing to take on. If this is something you'd like to do, I'd be happy to assist!

He must be the only White Castle chef in the world. Now, the people working the grill at White Castles always put the buns on the meat as soon as all the patties are laid down. That's what steams them.

If we had a White Castle within a 100 miles of here, I would go there, Force my way into the grill area and watch how they did it to end this controversy. I just wish we had one within 100 miles. Or even better yet--- A KRYSTALS!!!

Gordon Ramsay doing a "Kitchen Nightmares" segment at White Castle?
It is what it is and the one around here is doing just fine.  Plus, he wouldn't be allowed to make menu changes and the only thing he'd be able to deal with would be slacking staff. 

I enjoy White Castle but I can hear him railing about the food!
