I get craving for White Castle about once a year. All other times of the year I can barely look at it but for that one time of year it is the nector of the gods.

You pay for that craving, but it's amazing.

No...no you don't. :ninja:

Geez, what did White Castle do to you? :P  In all seriousness, if it was food poisoning I understand the hate. I had the worst food poisoning of my life from a Kentucky Fried Chicken and seeing commercials for it still makes me nauseous. I even stopped eating at the Kennedy Fried Chicken in Plainfield because of it and I loved that place.

 

Back on topic, in terms of fast food burger joints White Castle is my favorite and I am also a fan of McDonald's. I do enjoy Burger King and Wendy's from time to time to mix it up, especially the Triple Baconator (even though it makes me feel like sh!t afterwards). I found Jack in the Box to be a bit overrated when I was in Tennessee. Never been to an In and Out but my brother said it was overrated.

 

In terms of "better" burger places I've been to Five Guys and Smash Burger and have no complaints though I'd still take fast food over them. There's a local place by me, Chimney Rock in Gillette, that has some good burgers on the menu - I hear the location in Bridgewater isn't as good though.

 

Also adding the Heart Attack Grill to my life's to do list. Place sounds amazing.

My tradition with a few buddies is to hit White Castle in celebration of a win. Makes it taste that much better. Never after a loss though

The bridgewater location of chimney rock has better pizza but the Gillette location has the better burger and bar.

Just came back from Grub Hut in manville and that place is outright awesome. Great mexican BBQ

For those of you in the Morris County area that want a good bar burger, Muldoon's at the Rockaway Mall (lower level of Macy's)has surprisingly good burgers, one of the better burgers I've had in a while. Very solid. There's a Red Robin there too which is also awesome.

Geez, what did White Castle do to you? :P 

 

The one on Route 1 near Menlo Park Mall in Edison. Never, ever, ever again. Got really sick off of it, and the burgers weren't even worth the illness. Pretty sure it shut me off to all White Castle ever. A friend desperately wanted it last week and I got some rubbery chicken sandwich thing because I couldn't stomach the idea of eating a burger there.

 

(I should not this terrible experience was when I was like 12, and has stuck with me for almost 20 years now.)

There's a place in Florida that makes a mac and cheese burger. I might have to make a pilgrimage.

Love that show. They actually came to my hometown Jefferson Diner a few years ago which was awesome. Never fails to make me hungry.

The current Penn Station might not be pretty, but it serves its purpose.  To try to re-create the old Penn Station like it used to be is foolish and a clear battle with nostalgic preservationists against an arena that is pretty much funneling tons of money in that area.  The old Penn Station was barely used and a complete dump before it was knocked down to make way for MSG.

 

I mean are there calls for the original Waldorf-Astoria hotel to be rebuilt in its original location?  Nope.  I guess part of it has to do do with the Empire State Building currently occupying that space yet no one is calling for that to be demolished to have the hotel rebuilt.

 

For MSG it is a bunch of loony, nostalgic idiots whose only beef against MSG is that it is "ugly" when in fact it serves its purpose quite well and creates business in the area.

 

 

Half a million people use Penn Station everyday. It's overcrowded and should be overhauled. The timing of this is peculiar. Why didn't city officials propose this before Dolan's renovation? Personally, MSG has lost its luster. The renovation has only worsened the atmosphere while accompanying big shots. A new building makes more sense. All those dollars wasted.

You have to build up a tolerance to Dub-C.  The first time you eat it, it lays siege to your digestive system, but with each subsequent endeavor, your digestive system begins to prove its worth and Dub-C starts to gradually respect its courage and valor until eventually Dub-C and your digestive system become noble companions.

 

My buddies and I used to go to that same location pretty often when we were in college.  My personal record is 15 cheeseburgers, half a crave case, though I had to use the bathroom at approximately burger 11 before I went back and finished.  I graduated three and a half years ago though and I think I've only eaten there once or twice since then.  My tolerance is probably back down to zero.

I'm sure they'll find another spot in Manhatten to house the new msg.  Doubt they would move it to another borough, but wouldn't be shocked. Lundquist could become the "King of Queens".

 

Wonder if they're working on his new contract? I think he'll get an 8 yr. deal

I went to a Cheeburger Cheeburger once and I thought it sucked, but I wonder if it was that particular Cheeburger Cheeburger (in Flemington) that sucked.  My uncle tried it once and warned me, but I took my wife and daughter anyway...sadly, turned out he was 100% right.  That location closed down a while ago...Flemington is a burger overkill area anyway...there's a Five Guys, a 25 Burgers (used to be a Pizza Hut), a Wendy's, a McDonald's, a TGIF, a Chili's, and not too far up the road, a Sonic.  There's also a BK that's been closed and "under renovation" for three years, but it doesn't look like anything's really being done with it.  I'm guessing Cheeburger Cheeburger didn't make it there for a reason. 

Remember "Bangers" on 31?   Not sure if that's Wendy's there now or not (or was it KFC)?   Talk about expensive burgers.   They banged themselves right out of business.

Don't know "Bangers".  When were they in biz? 

 

BTW KFC in Flemington closed some time ago, and was starting to look like a "Life After People" episode (think neglect and a whole lot of overgrowth).  Then one day, I was driving by and the lights inside were on.  Some time after that, the brush was cut away, and new signs were put up:  "CHICKEN ADDICTION".  On Saturday, I drove by it on my way to a friend's house, and it's now open for business.  It's not a chain, which makes me want to give it a try out of principle.  Would love to see a mom-and-popper have some success.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I'll have to check it out.   That KFC was awful--never had what you wanted ready and had to wait for 15 minutes for every order. 

 

Bangers went out of business around 2000.   Funny enough, right after NJ Magazine voted them one of the best burgers in NJ.   But the prices were insanely high at the time as they were slightly ahead of the "designer burger" crave that ensued.

I like cheeburger as well. Much more flavor than 5 guys and crazy more options when ordering. Fries are nice too very old bay style.
