These mortals stood firm for the sliders.
Fans went out en masse to celebrate the new White Castle of Orlando – the largest outlet of the fast food chain – on the day of its opening on Monday, and some even went camping at night to wait in line.
“I couldn’t sleep last night,” said Sheila Santiago, who lined up at 3:30 a.m. Monday in front of the Orlando Sentinel for her intense anticipation of the new location. “I’m literally shivering because I feel like it just brought me home.”
Santiago was far from alone in its abundance of the new branch of 4,567 square feet of the favorite chain, which will eventually operate 24 hours a day, every day of the week.
Local tweets showed that the area is completely overwhelmed by traffic jams waiting to place their first orders at the freshly cut ribbon restaurant.
“The whole area is an absolute nightmare. Every time the area is stagnant, “tweeted one of the witnesses to the infernal car landscape.
Eating fans Fred Alder and Joshua Mendoza turned out to be most involved with the White Castle of Orlando, according to a tweet from Orlando news reporter Ezzy Castro, who revealed that the two were online when the doors opened. The couple reached the new place at 8 the night before.
Senior White Castle executives rightly expected Florida to be uniquely advertised for the location.
“This is the largest White Castle in the system, and we built it because we thought they would have the greatest desire for our products in Florida,”
