Fast-food chain serving signature beef, chicken & fish sliders, plus extras such as onion rings.
delicious burgers, as always. no seating, but then you get to sit on the curv outside like the old days! Drive thru took forever unfortunately, but probably because there were so many people! A perfect late night snack on a Friday night!
It’s open 24 hours! The prices are relatively cheap! Service is friendly! It’s right next to the bus stop! Make sure to go to at least one White Castle if you have never been. I would opt to go during the day for this location or if it’s a late night stop, make sure to drive. I felt slightly out of place with my gf at 10 at night waiting for the bus after we got our food. And around that time of night, the bus only comes every 25 minutes so…yeah. I ordered two originals and two chicken sandwiches. She had two double decker type cheeseburgers. Fries were good, don’t order the hot chocolate. It was an interesting experience. Kind of like when tourists want to try McDonald’s for the first time, which White Castle’s food is very similar to.
Very bad establishment. Came in to pick up an order and they refused to change the customers order. They claimed the burgers were made but I stood in the restaurant and watched them make it. Very bad customer service.
Slow castle is my name for this location. How is it that every White Castle I go to is super slow. How long does it take to cook the smallest burgers in the world. I don’t know how they train them in here but I’ve never seen in this century White Castle’s this slow. I used to go to the White Castle on 79th and Stony Island with my grandmother in the 70s you can see them cook the food through the glass. Now they have gone downhill with their service. I am craving for it but I’m getting very turned off of White Castle’s now because of the service.
The food tastes like a miniature McDonalds. Getting their brand from a local grocer is about the same quality as you’ll find from the storefront. Just as overhyped as Sprinkles is for cupcakes. Would definitely suggest to skip and save your tastebuds and life experiences to something better. They heard my order wrong. Which I should’ve just left and not had bothered to get it corrected (they didn’t charge extra or anything initially – just left off a full order). Lesson learned. Stuff happens for a reason and should just let it be. Also, it’s simply a drive-in and walk-up counter storefront. No seating (neither indoor nor outdoor). Remember: food adventures are out there. But sometimes they’re not what you expect.
So. Slow. I’ve picked up Uber Eats orders here. 20 minute waits with 4 people ahead of me and a normal drive thru line. PAINSTAKINGLY slow. Food’s fine.
I don’t know if it’s just this location but every time I go the employees are rude and unfriendly… I don’t know why? And the burgers are super soggy as if they honestly don’t care, it got to the point that they were making us sick the buns were mushy. Is this all white castles?
Happy 100th Anniversary White Castle! I visited this location so that I can try the Impossible sliders, a plant based option that has been around now since twenty eighteen! Since I visit White Castle sporadically I had not known the sliders existed until I stumbled upon a promotion of them by members of the Wu Tang Clan, a hip hop group from Staten Island, New York City. As a lacto ovo vegetarian that is always searching for plant based options the sliders were a must try once I discovered them. I was hesitant on visiting this location because it had low ratings in comparison to the West Garfield Park location. However, safety wise it was the better location to visit because once you cross Hamlin Blvd to go into West Garfield Park it is a whole different area, plus I am more familiar with this part of town. I ordered two Impossible sliders w/ a small fry & drink via drive thru which the experience was typical to most as far as wait time. I felt that I visited at the right time because after I ordered my food the flock of vehicles started coming in. The parking lot is small with only a few parking spots which becomes a situation if there are at least 3 vehicles waiting to order. One thing that frustrated me was an individual patrolling from the street to the restaurant parking lot, asking customers for money. It made this visit uncomfortable as I waited at the window as well as in the parking lot for my food to be brought out. Situations like that make me rethink visiting places late in the evening because there is already so much going on in the city. The Impossible sliders were satisfying, but nothing that I can see myself ordering on a regular. However, it is great to have an alternative plant based option, but I am just not one who visits White Castle on a regular basis. Despite others having a negative experience at this location, mine was not so bad other than the individual patrolling the parking lot. And the customer service I received was not the greatest nor was it the worst; it was average and I certainly have no complaints. ~Blessings~ Thomas G
I went to this White Castle at 12:00pm on 4/15/21, the height of lunch hour. I ordered a crave crate and they were very busy. The manager came in to assist the two workers. She walked the other two workers on how to fold the crave crate box. She was a good manager, she got in there and showed the workers how to cook an assemble the sliders. She did the crate in under 30 minutes. I told her that she was a great manager because she showed the workers how to do it. I told her I was going to leave a positive Yelp Review because I was impressed with her managerial style.
I just want to say this Is my favorite location The people that work here are just so pleasant. I don’t know who the two young African American boys that work here are and the older white lady but they are so pleasant everyday that I come and always seem to be working so hard oh, these guys are awesome! I came this morning and got my normal for cheeseburgers with my grape soda and of course the food was hot and fresh and always correct. I usually have to wait a little while but that’s okay , I love coming here on my hungover Sunday mornings for food
