Krystal v White Castle

for those of us who are lucky enough (or unlucky enough) to have had both, which is your favorite and why?

  1. KRYSTAL! We only have White Castle in Indy - and I actually drove to Bowling Green KY (the closets location) during a mad craving. The buns are ever so much better than WC. On a recent trip to FL the husband ate them whenever possible - fortunately we could have the windows down...
    However....did you see the Krystal eating contest on TV this past weekend? - dunking them in water was more than I could handle.

    1. On our Thanksgiving trip we ate at WC one day and K the next. Definately Krystals. I don't know why, I just like them better. I think Spoon may be right, it's the buns. The WC buns get so much soggier.

      1. Really? It's been a while since I've had Krystal's but I remember thinking that White Castle's buns were better. Plus the burgers were just right, there was something off about Krystal. I did LOVE their chicken poppers though.

        1. the buffalo ranch krystals are good. a guilty pleasure. but they are FILLING! I had two and i felt like I ate thanksgiving dinner.

          1. I'll eat whatever is available. No fave...both respectable sliders--one with mustard, one without. These food product franchises excel in, what I like to refer as, 'It'll make a turd,' food. This question is almost like asking why In-n-Out can't serve an egg on top of an animal style, a la FatBurger. No extremes, just style.
