Even if you can’t find them in metro Atlanta, many people are familiar with the White Castle hamburger chain.
The iconic fast food restaurant known for its sliders and fries is considering selling beer and wine.
The 90-year-old chain is already testing alcoholic beverage sales in Lafayette, Ind., where customers can buy a glass of wine for $4.50 or beer for $3. The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch newspaper quotes a spokesman who says customer feedback so far is promising.
White Castles are mainly found in the Midwest and Northeast, although Tennessee also has locations. If you’re not familiar with the chain, you can get a pretty good idea what a White Castle burger looks like if you drop in on a local Krystal restaurant.
Is White Castle on to something? Now that many areas around Atlanta have approved Sunday alcoholic beverage sales, are sales at fast food restaurants next in line? “Order up!”
