As a WC fan and former resident of cities where they were served, I think the crime factor here in River City is keeping them away. Think you might be able to find a hot one in Philly or Baltimore, but that's about as far South as they get, unless you go west- Chicago, Louisville.

I love going to a WC for the chicken rings and cheese fries. I've lived in Florida for almost a year now and haven'e found one WC. When I lived in Indiana, we had one 5 minutes away from each other. Now when I moved down here everyone told me to go to Krystal's, that it was just the same, IT WAS NOT. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A WC AROUND ORLANDO OR EVEN IN FLORIDA?

I've been away a while, and I was skimming through some threads, I thought there used to be one at the Blvd and Broad.

I am a native Richmonder,and while we have never had a White Castle here that I know of ,we used to have a bunch of White Tower restaurants.I am told they were similar to your WC.
There was a WT at Blvd.and Broad Sts. I went there often.We had one at Staple Mill and Broad. We had one at Lombardy and Broad,also 9th and Broad. They were at several locations around town like 3rd and Grace and 9th and Main.There was one at Cowardin and Semmes and on Midlothian Trnpke.I think there was one at Brook and Azalea.
At last I checked you can get White Castle Hamburgers at Ukrops Supermarket in the frozen foods section.About 12 to a box.

That would be 6 per box.And at a otrageous price of $4 dollars and some change a box.And no pickles or onions on them.Dont waste your time.

Krystal's is about as close as you can get to a White Castle here in Florida. I used to have a WC 5 minutes from my house in NY but here in Daytona Krystals is all there is. You have to ask for the burger WITHOUT mustard and with pickles and onions to try to get as close to WC as you can, but you are right, it it not the same.

as a company, White castle prefers to utilize only retained earnings for expansion. This means that they do not leverage/borrow money for new locations. When they do, it is usually based upon proximity to existing restaurant markets where they already exist. This has always been their corporate philosophy, and you should probably figure on them making it to Florida around 2062

i live in houston texas and there is definetly a need for white castle so many people from white castle areas on the east coast would appreciate a white castle here in houston and the revenue it would produce would be amazing the should franchise their product so the entire United States can experience a White castle burger ... Crystals is a poor excuse of a Square burger We Need More White Castles

Maybe if there were enough investor there could be a new WC(south) many of us know how they cook them, if they are unwilling to come south someone who know what they taste like and how to cook them should open a new chain. I know I have inquired about franchise and they are just not willing to expand to the south. I'm not a cook but I bet someone with that knowledge could come up with a similar product. Krystal came close but they don't cook on a bed of onions and they only put mustard. All they would have to do is alter their recipe slightly and would explode with business for those of us who miss WC

Wonder why they don't move some out North. Have seen "The Boss" and took a liking to the place. Would like to see one in the PanHandle of Idaho.
