Here's the difference: First of all, Castles are not grilled. They are placed over a bed of onions, topped with buns, and steamed so that they are moist and juicy. Second, I know they are hamburgers, but they're not like any hamburgers that are cooked directly on heat.

As to your ridiculous claims about why I would not eat a hamburger from Five Guys, well, I hope you don't hurt yourself when the limb you went out on breaks and drops you to the ground.

Edit: There's one more thing: I don't even think of White Castles as hamburgers. I think of them as Castles.

    Just making a judgment based on thread history. But, I may have cracked my skull from the fall. Tail bone is also hurting and my mouth is hurting as my foot may have landed in it too hard.

    but, as per being well-done, and still tasty, I hope, from my comments and others' that it's realized that Five Guys' method of grilling, also produces a juicy burger that is not dry.

    Personally, I have always been skeptical of steamed burgers, as the ones I have had were not so good. However, I'm still looking for my first White Castle experience, believe it or not, because of the Harold and Kumar movie. I'm not usually swayed by movies and pop culture on where and what to eat, but I do want to try them at White Castle's before I buy them from the freezer at Safeway.

      Fine...go for it....and enjoy!!!

        You're so right...5 Guys burgers are very juicy...and very tasty...certainly the BEST fast(well they serve moderately fast)food burger I've ever had...fries are superb...great food for the price!!!!

          Scorereader you may be heartbroken, as I was, to learn that the guy who plays Kumar is a vegetarian. He has never had a white castle burger before. I just can't look at him in the same light anymore. I feel so betrayed!!!

          However, talking about that movie at work is what made me go satisfy my crave.

            I actually heard about that before watching the movie. Still funny. He was also funny in VanWilder.

              I cracked up the other day...WC was offering a "Surf and Turf". A hamburger/ fish sandwich double combo. I thought it was cute to combine the two,from a marketing standpoint, but wasn't enticed to think of trying one.

                I saw that Surf and Turf thing last week. For some reason I wasn't even slightly tempted.

                  No White Castle near me either, but as long as I can find them in the freezer, 10 pack box(2 in a pack) for $9.99, I'm happy. I bought a box and made a wonderful stuffing yesterday!!!

                    I adore WC but am IN LOVE with The Hamburger Station, a clone of WC but so gooood. A dozen sliders on dinner rolls cut in half horizontaly and served w/sweet onion mustard and pickle. Cheese is optional. They are served in the donut type boxes. Great onion rings too. They are only in Ohio and about an hour from where I live so I don't get much occasion to indulge. Most are close to The University of Akron around here. If you are in the area and love sliders google the locations, you'll be amazed. The gyros and fish are good too. Happy eating Road Foodies!

                      I'll definitely keep an eye out for the Hamburger Station when I get to Akron in about 2 weeks.
                      I've always wanted to try making dressing with WC's but never have. Do you throw in the hambuerger as well?

                        White Castle memory for me - went to college in DeKalb IL (NIU) and at that time, the closest White Castle was in Aurora IL, 25 miles away. Got there and the White Castle had plexiglass between the customer and the people cooking. The plexiglass was installed because of a couple shootings in that resturant. Different meaning to the word 'dangerous' for a White Castle.
