The lone White Castle in America's Dairyland Fri, 10/22/10 11:48 AM (permalink)
I always thought that there was no White Castle presence in Wisconsin but it turns out there's a grand total of one, and it's located at Highway 50 and 118th Avenue (just east of I-94) in Kenosha.  Not that it's all that much closer to me than any of the ones in the northwest Chiburbs but it's certainly better for someone from the Milwaukee area who might be craving a Slyder.  And everyone craves them...I know because it says so on WC's website, and everything found on the Internet is 100% true.

    I crave one.  One sack.
     
    Meanwhile, mired in Sebring, Florida today, I am about to go out on, what I know is a fruitless endeavor to, once again, forage for a decent lunch.  I'd give anything for a WC, a SnS, a 5G ...

      On my FB page, I've a link for a free garlic cheeseburger from WC. I love jalapeno WC cb's for breakfast if nothing local is open. These and a WH visit if I'm really desperate is about the extent of my FF or chain experiences.

        A WC cb, doused with Skyline chili, onions, mustard, and maybe a fried egg ... that would be a good lookin' BREAKFAST for me.

            Thanks for mentioning White Castle. I read your post and when I went out to the bank I stopped by the White Castle nearby -- seven miles away from the bank nearby -- and I just finished eating half a dozen -- mustard please, and no pickles.
             
            Oh, well, I'm sure that by halftime of tonight's high school game I'll have room for a couple of horrible hot dogs.

                You folks out there in Earthquake Land are most definitely deprived.
                 
                On the other hand, the very first -- and without a doubt very best and most wonderful -- chili dog I ever had was in Santa Paula. I was a police officer there, and one day I stopped to get a soda at this stand, As I got out of the cruiser I saw a guy wearing a hard hat get this thing that turned out to be a footlong hot dog topped with chili. I'd never even heard of such a thing before -- a foot long hot dog, or a hot dog with chili on it.
                 
                I could not resist and I ordered one. I can remember even today that it cost 50 cents, and that was back in the '50s. That chili dog was magnificent. None of the sauce-like stuff people are always putting on hot dogs and calling chili, or coney sauce, or anything like that. This was chili. Real, honest to God chili. It was thick with meat, spicy, and smokey with cumin. And no beans at all, of course.
                 
                Had this chili been served to me in a bowl I'd have thought I'd somehow entered a warp and was back in a favorite chili parlor on Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas. And when the woman serving asked if I'd like some chopped onions to go on it I knew immediately that I was not locked in a warp, I was not in Texas; I was in Heaven.
                 
                Now that was a chili dog.
                 
                And you complain about not having good stuff in California. Hmph!

                  You are only about an hour from a Steak 'n' Shake (Kissimmee).

                      I feel like a crappy friend, Brad. I have known this for a few years, but stupidly thought no one would care.
                       
                      My grandpa used to take my cousins to IL specifically for White Castles. The ones in the freezer at the grocery store don't taste the same.
