If you are a fan of White Castle burgers—you will be a fan of White Crescent Burgers.
Rather than trying to make a long story short…check menu/prices at wwwhitecrescentburgers.com.
The basic story here is, back in 1957 in Bloomfield, New Jersey—White Crescent Burgers opened a “hamburger joint” that looked and tasted like White Castle. At the above website, there is a photo of the original-joint (back in the day) so you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. The original joint did sliders and fries.
Anyway, a year or so ago, White Crescent opened a location in West Palm Beach. Just so you know from the get-go…the Florida outpost doesn’t have the “cool-crisp-white castle” look that the ’57 joint had…but it does have absolutely delicious sliders and fries. In addition to those sliders/fries-White Crescent has other stuff like- 4oz and 8oz burgers (beef, turkey, vegetable), hot dogs, wings, sandwiches, salads.
Like I said before, if you are a White Castle fan, you’ll be a White Crescent fan. A recent outing had me doing the $8.99- 4 sliders/fries/soda “special.” I was in slider heaven.
Not to bore you guys with old Jeff Eats’ tales…but, back in 1977-Jeff and his brother-in-law Chuck, devoured 31 White Castle burgers while driving from Sunrise Highway/Lynbrook, L.I. to the Sands Beach Club in Atlantic Beach, L.I. For those unfamiliar with the area, the
“drive” in a gold-colored 1975 Ford Granada took about 35 minutes. Suffice to say, the days of eating 16 sliders in one session are now long “behind” me.
As mentioned, White Crescent’s menu has loads of fast food staples. As a “purist” my game… sliders-fries, but I guess by having larger burgers, hot dogs- etc, White Crescent figures that it can draw a wider audience.
To all slider lovers: You gotta try this joint.
White Crescent Burgers is open Monday-Thursday 11am-8:30pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-9:30pm, Sunday 11am-7pm.
