Quoted from KrustyBurger:

I'm a huge fan of White Castle. (Seriously, I really need to lose some weight) I recently went to the doctor's office and he told me since I am now in my late 40's, it would be necessary to have a barium enema so that they may inspect my colon for polyps in a forthcoming x-ray. I told him no worries and to save the barium as I would simply stop at my local White Castle on the way home and order the 'Crave Case'. Eating all of these over a 24 hr. period should easily do the trick. [quoted image]

I was at the White Castle in Bloomington, MN not far from the airport and the guy in front of me ordered 3 crave cases to go so that he could bring them back to California on the plane. I've also heard that they offer wedding packages for people to get married there that come with fancy table clothes and silverware. I used to love going there in college after the bars. I don't really think of them as burgers but they are really addictive! My favorite are the jalopeno cheeseburgers with fried onions.

We don't have any White Castles near me in WI but I live 10 miles from the Culver's World headquarters and eat there all the time. We also have 5 Guys and Mooyahs by where I work which are good as well but Culver's just has better variety. I can get my cheese curds and frozen Custard for desert. More choices for the kids too.

When we do the poll for best fast food chicken place my vote goes to Raising Cane's over Chick-fil-A.

Quoted from KrustyBurger:

Culver's is my favorite fast food restaurant - White Castle is my favorite 'snack' burger. Everything Culver's makes tastes fresh & delicious. As my family & I travel to central Wisconsin a few times every month, we routinely stop at the "World's Largest Culver's" off of I-90 in Edgerton. (It's really not much bigger than any other Culver's I've been to, but they advertise it this way!) If traffic is snarled on the way back home, we occasionally get off the highway in Baraboo & head towards the Culver's in Sauk City off of Rt. 12. I think that's the same Culver's you are referring to as they have a plaque outside as you leave the drive-thru. Good stuff!
BTW - In agreement, White Castle's jalapeño cheeseburgers are the best! (Make it a double when you're near one again - you won't regret it!)

Yes, that is the same Culver's. They actually bulldozed the original Culver's which was at that location and built a new one about 10 years ago which is what the plaque is for. There's also a place a couple miles from there called the Blue Spoon Cafe which is an upscale "dine in" Culver's which overlooks the river. I kind of take Culver's for granted since there are so many of them around here (they outnumber McDonalds) but I really don't have anything bad to say about them. They are usually managed well and are a good reliable choice if you are looking for fast food.

I'm a bit envious that Illinois has so many Portillos as that's a great place for hot dogs and Italian Beefs. We finally got our first one in Madison this Spring. I'd trade you a couple of Culver's for another Portillos

Quoted from girloveswaffles:

Serious question: I don't think I've seen Sonic mentioned here. How are the burgers?
The nearest one to me is at least a dozen miles away. I've literally seen more of them outside of California than in California. If I go by one is it worth popping in and trying their food?

I'd rate Sonic better than McDonalds or BK but there are far better options mentioned in this thread. The Sonic near me went out of business a couple years' ago because of lack of business.
