Steamed meat on steamed buns. Lansing misses the White Castle that used to be on the south side. Don't worry, the tasty goodness of White Castle is alive and well in Michigan.

We didn't have White Castle back home in southwest Michigan where I grew up. I can remember White Castle locations in the Chicagoland area when I was a kid, I spent a lot of time in suburbs during the summer. My grandma never took me there. The first time I ever enjoyed the deliciousness of White Castle was in Lansing when I moved here in 1996. It used to be located on the south side of Lansing where Pennsylvania Ave. and Cedar St. intersect.

White Castle is one of those places that you either craved or didn't. I love White Castle burgers. I prefer the chesseburgers. Who would've thought that steamed meat would be that tasty? Back in the day when I used to drink, White Castle was always a solid go to for munchies.

I don't know much about White Castle, I do know that their food is awesome. White Castle has a fun history:

In 1921, Billy Ingram launched a family-owned business with $700 and an idea, selling five-cent, small, square hamburgers so easy to eat, they were dubbed Sliders and sold by the sack. In 2014, Time® Magazine declared our iconic Original Slider® the most influential burger of all time. Today our family-owned business sells the same humble, 100 percent USDA beef patty with onions and pickle, creating memorable moments for Craver generations everywhere. The only thing better than polishing off a Sack of Sliders alone, is doing it with friends.

Fans of White Castle can pay a visit to one of their Michigan locations to grab some tasty vittles. There are a few that still exist. Might be worth the road trip.
