--- Quote ---It has been 105 days since we learned that the robots had infiltrated White Castle. The dastardly automaton that stormed its hallowed 99-year-old gates was none other than our old friend Flippy, the disembodied mechanical arm that will most certainly never use its cold metal talons to claw at the skull of an assistant manager.

After allowing Flippy to stage at one of its restaurants, White Castle has announced plans to adopt some of Flippy’s siblings from their creator, Miso Robotics. The restaurant chain will be deploying them in 2021 at ten additional locations to steal jobs the hearts of customers. ...

Another fruit of the drive for government-mandated $15/hour minimum wage, making the investment in robot burger-flippers economically viable for large-ish chains.

Never understood the appeal of this place.  Burgers taste like mystery meat.

In my burger-sphere...  I am okay, as long as i am within 25 miles of a Whataburger or an In and Out.

Not a fan of it but Harold and Kumar liked White Castle.

And every White Castle restaurant I know has a license to print money. Always have a huge line in the drive through

Mystery meat is ok, lol. I was very excited to find White Castle in the frozen food section of the grocery store. At one time, there was a burger joint called Crystal Burger in Dallas. A WC clone. I loved them.

Of course, I love Whataburger as well. I don't know about In and Out. But am a junk-food-aholic and love Mickey Ds, Jack In The Box and Sonic as well. So I may not be the best judge. :laugh:
