Fueled by the power of nostalgia, the pursuit of novelty and plain old curiosity, the fever pitch buzz surrounding the very first Las Vegas White Castle hits saturation point right now. Following a ribbon cutting ceremony for a 5,615-square-foot fast foot joint, White Castle burgers are now being served on the Strip, inside a new annex to the Best Western Plus Casino Royale.
Serving 2 by 2 inch steam-grilled burgers, the small size, distinct flavor and texture flavor has created a "Craver Nation" of fervent fans and equally confused observers. The compact size means guests can fill up with a "sack" of 10 quickly digested sliders, priced at $9.99 in Las Vegas.
Located next door to the nation's number one earning Denny's restaurant and also accessible via the Casino Royale gaming floor, this will be the furthest west location for the cult chain.
The new location features a wall mural of Las Vegas-themed images and vintage White Castle locations, self-serve soda machines and don't-get-too-comfy stool seating. Menu combos include double cheese, chicken breast and fish. Sides include their famous crinkle cut fries and their chicken ring version of an onion ring, breaded to dip into "honey mustard, BBQ, ranch or zesty-zing sauce."
Las Vegas customers can also take home, or to their hotel room, the "Crave Case," which fits 30 sliders into a cardboard box with a handle, perfect for flaunting across a casino floor. Pick up a case for $34.99, or if you want to make some new friends, $109.99 will get you the "Craver Crate" filled with 100 mini burgers perfect for randomly sharing.
And to prove you traveled all the way to Las Vegas and still ate at White Castle, specially branded T-shirts have been created just for this location.
