Nation's Largest White Castle Opens In Kentucky

Louisville may be the new center of the universe for die-hard fans of White Castle.

Friday, the fast food chain opened it's largest store in the country, in the Derby City.

The 38 by 91square foot restaurant can seat up to 78 people.

Mayor Jerry Abramson served up some of the first sliders at the restaurant's grand opening ceremony.

White Castle, which has been around for 80 years, has more than 380 restaurants. Last year alone, the chain served up more than 500 million burgers.

    To each his own....White Castle is not the reason America is fat. We are fat because we no longer do intense manual labor, food is more plentiful and processed, and since we are not in the fields working, we have more time and opportunity to feast on the food within our reach. That is why we are a fat nation. Goes to show that too much of a good thing is too much period.

    What a society to have to live in, can't eat what you like! The food that is good for you cost's a fortune!, the food that is bad for you cost's less!. It's not that people have bad habits, you have to eat what you can afford with your budget. Some might not understand eat fast food every now and then and not everyday. I like WC, but I don't eat there everyday.

    Virgil.Lauren...I eat WC's and I am NOT overweight. You can't tag them with being the only problem. McDonalds, Wendys, Hardees and Dairy Queen contribute more. There are many many more McDonalds and Wendys in towns than WC.It is not the establishments fault that there are so many obese people. It is the people that have a super sized #2 and 3 everyday. But I suppose that neither of you eat out at ANY fast food?

    @Virgil Location: Richmond/Irvine If you think obesity and pot smoking have anythign to do with one another your an idiot. Try blaming the breeder moms that gain 20lbs more every kid they have and let the kids eat junk all day and play xbox till they get carpol tunnel at 16 and weigh in at morbidly obese. After all true obesity starts in childhood and parental non guidance of habits. Imagine if more people could afford a dentist what the stats would look like.
