Fremont White Castle Opens This Week, Ditto Fremont East’s Flippin’ Good Burgers

A long-awaited White Castle restaurant, only the second such location in Las Vegas, will open at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Sep. 22, 2017.

Yes, we were the first to report a White Castle would be coming to Fremont, but we don’t like to brag. Link to our original story, yes, but brag, no.

White Castle on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas is nearly ready for the onslaught.

The new Fremont Street White Castle is located at the east end of the Fremont Street Experience (where we work in digital marketing), just across from the Neonopolis shopping plaza.

Given the festive, liquor-fueled street party that is Fremont Street, we expect the owners of White Castle will soon have more money than any number of Gates or Adelsons or Buffetts.

This is likely to be the last time you don’t see a line in this doorway. Because drunchies.

Fremont lost its Trader Bill’s sign with the arrival of White Castle, but the thought of some tasty sliders is helping with the grieving process.

Another burger restaurant, Flippin’ Good Burgers & Shakes, will also open on Sep. 22. Or, technically, re-open.

Yes, the door was open, but we’re calling it a “security breach,” anyway, because it just sounds cool.

The fast food restaurant in the Fremont East Entertainment district originally opened in August of 2015.

The eatery recently closed for a major renovation, and will now be more of a fast casual restaurant, complete with a new bar, servers and a focus on “chicken, burgers and beer.”

Flippin’ Good Burgers & Shakes has completely overhauled its interior with new colors, and flourishes of metal and wood. The new color scheme is reflected on the building’s exterior as well.

Flippin’ Good Burgers has an outdoor seating area with some new picnic tables, which will be perfect for the two weeks a year when Las Vegas has perfect weather.

It’s no coincidence these restaurants are opening on the same date. A huge influx of potential customers will be heading downtown for the Life is Beautiful music festival, and the restaurants no doubt wanted to take full advantage of the crowds.

Life is Beautiful runs from Sep. 22-24, 2017.
