Thread: White Castle Law Suit

    Default White Castle Law Suit

    Seems a larger than normal NYC stockbroker is suing White Castle
    because he cannot fit into a booth.

    http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/2119...ger-booths.htm

    It also seems White Castle sent him coupons for free food in reply to
    his pre-suit complaints. LOL!

    I wonder if certain NYC / high cost urban locations have snugger
    booths / seating?

    He is no even that big in the realm of the world of fast foods. Maybe
    White Castle can just get some of it's 300-400 pound customers to sit in
    their booths. I am sure they can bribe a bunch of tubbies to sit in them
    for a few free burgers.

    Boy, I wish we had a White Castle in our town. We don't even have one in
    the state. I think that it would be great if White Castle was doing this
    to increase awareness of the obesity problem facing this nation. OTOH,
    I'm betting the floor space in the particular WC might be lacking. OTOH,
    how much space do you need to cook such small burgers and do you really
    need to sit to eat one of those? Those NY guys just don't appreciate
    what they got.

    I'm not saying these are good but I think White Castle is selling
    frozen sliders nationwide. Also when's the last time you checked? I
    was rather surprise at the growth of the WC chain.

    dsi1,

    The nearest White Castle is about 90 minutes too far from my house. BUT,
    several supermarkets sell boxes of WC hamburgers and cheeseburgers in the
    frozen food aisle. They don't come with the pickles or their brand of
    mustard packets.

    You could dial up your supermakets and see if they carry them and at least
    try a box. Or not!

    Best,

    Andy

    Isn't that like saying "they sell you junkfood and then they give you
    small chairs so that you realise how far they scr***d you up" ?
    Or is WC sellling above-the-standard healthy fast food? I dunno, in
    Italy only Burger King and McD's did the trip here, and BK is long dead
    in my region, I don't even know if some BK have survived in Italy, maybe
    zero. Sure not a big number.

    Maybe they should eliminate the booths and just provide those high
    tables that people stand at to eat.

    I have never been in a White Castle but I have seen booths I can not fit
    into. There was a restaurant in Alameda that also sold ice cream. Most of
    the booths were normal size but one had far less room between the seats and
    the table. Little kids could fit in there just fine but only the thinnest
    of adults would fit.

    One of the La Palmera restaurants here has a few similar booths. And I have
    been at another restaurant (can't remember the name) that also had a small
    amount of space between the booth and the table. Now maybe it's not so much
    my size but my shape. In some cases I could actually get in there but my
    boobs were then resting on the table. This is not really something I want.

    I did live in NYC but not in a high cost urban area. So I can't speak for
    their booths.

    The lawsuit doesn't stand a chance. Restaurants have booths, normal table
    seating sections and in some cases, counter seating!

    Case dismissed!!!

    Imho,

    White Castle should claim that they're doing a public service: if you
    can't squeeze into a booth, you shouldn't be buying burgers, and if
    you can barely squeeze in, the tight booth limits the amount you can
    eat.

    Many years ago, when Schrafft's Restaurants were semi-upscale, they
    tacked a $.10 bread charge onto every check, with no mention of that
    on the menu, even if you didn't ask for bread. One man complained at
    the register, but had to pay in the end. Then he wrote the company a
    letter pointing out that this was probably illegal and certainly
    injurious to their reputation. The next day, he sent an invoice on
    letterhead for legal advice in the amount of $50. The quick response
    from Schrafft's legal department was that they had not asked for any
    advice. He responded that he had not asked for any bread. Our hero
    lawyer got his dime back and the practice was stopped.

    I've had the frozen WC burgers. They are tasty. White Castle in Hawaii
    would be pretty big news - I'd surely hear about that one.

    I've gotten them at Costco at a good price. The ones in the supermarket
    are slightly out of my hunger range. OTOH, I've been making some pretty
    good burgers myself.

    If one can get lunch cheap enough, having no seats is not too much of a
    problem. There's not enough places in this country that have that
    embrace that street-food philosophy. I've seen some Japanese movies that
    have some guy in the middle of nowhere selling hot noodles on a cold
    dark night - a very strange idea but cool idea.

    You'd think there would be a lot of places like that in NYC.

    It would have to be a region with a lot of American tourists. I
    remember seeing a McDonald's with a Burger King opening up across the
    street a block away from a train station the last time we were in
    Europe. <shrug>
