Gird Your Loins, White Castle Opens on Fremont Street

The second White Castle restaurant in Las Vegas has opened for business, this time in downtown on Fremont Street.

We were the first to report White Castle would be coming to Fremont Street, news that proved to be polarizing.

That’s because people who love White Castle really love White Castle. Others, not so much.

You can’t fool us, your loins aren’t even remotely girded. Shame on you. We’ll wait while you gird.

Business has been brisk at the new White Castle location, but the opening proved to be far more subdued than when Sin City’s first White Castle opened at Casino Royale on The Strip back in January 2015.

White Castle Fremont Street

White Castle was founded in 1921. Which is odd, because we didn’t even know it was losted.

Fremont’s White Castle is open 24/7 and even serves beer. It’s Vegas, so it’s the law.

Come for the belly busters, stay for the giggle water.

While we weren’t thrilled when White Castle fancied up a classic Trader Bill’s sign, we enjoyed our first visit.

We tend to agree with those who say White Castle is an acquired taste, probably because the patties appear to be steamed rather than grilled.

Signs at White Castle assure the sliders are 100% beef, so we’ll take them at their word on that.

We passed on the onions, although purists probably consider that an unforgivable transgression.

Competitive eater Joey Chestnut once ate 103 White Castle sliders in eight minutes. Competitive eater Joey Chestnut’s digestive system has never forgiven him.

The prices for the various slider combos and “Castle Packs” seem reasonable, making White Castle a good fit for value-conscious guests on Fremont Street.

White Castle Fremont menu

Yes, there’s a Veggie Slider. It was added to the menu by Lucifer, but it’s there.

Also a good fit is the location.

The Fremont White Castle sits at what amounts to the entrance of Fremont Street Experience (where we work in digital marketing as our day job), across from the Neonopolis shopping complex, at the intersection of Fremont Street and 4th Street.

White Castle sits smack dab in the middle (especially if you include the Fremont East Entertainment District) of what amounts to an endless, liquor-fueled street party attended by thousands of people each night suffering from “munchies,” “drunchies” or both.

Look for the new White Castle on Fremont Street. You sort of can’t miss it.

As we predicted during the lengthy construction process, the White Castle on Fremont Street pretty much has a license to print money.

However you may feel about White Castle, there’s no denying it’s now a very visible and odoriferous part of Fremont Street.

      I called the water treatment plant on Vegas Valley Drive. They guarantee satisfaction or double the sewage back.

      It is the perfect stuffing for a Thanksgiving turkey: bread, onions, dill pickle (I could pass on) and a little red meat. MMMMM!!!!

    Would rather have had an In n Out, though this location doesn’t have a drive thru…. which would make it unlikely that In n Out would open here.

      No drive thru didn’t stop In-N-Out from opening at The Linq. I would love an In-N-Out downtown. Scott, make it happen!

    Hi Scott, Is the White Castle location exactly where the Harley Davidson store used to be? I still see the logo in the photo above, so did they just move their HUGE shop to a smaller one on Fremont St. or leave altogether? I haven’t been down there in years (hoping they’ve cleaned it up a lot more before I go 🙂 so enlighten me. Oh, and I really enjoyed your talk at WordCamp last weekend. Cheers!! @DPM_CRE (Danielle)
