I like White Castle, but had a chance to try a Krystal burger for the first time this past summer. They’re definitely not alike, and all in all, I prefer WC… That steamed oniony goodness is what makes the difference for me. Oh, and I’m not sure I’ve seen anyone mention their jalapeno cheeseburgers? Oh, baby… [}:)]
A few years ago, we also tried Crabill’s up in Urbana, OH:
They were more similar to Krystal burgers than WC, IMO. I did like sitting at the counter being able to watch the ladies working there fry up the hamburger patties and joke around with the regulars. It’s a good roadfood stop if you’re in the area seeing the Ohio caverns like we were.
