Well, a couple of weeks ago in Nashville, I had fresh White Castles and Krystals side-by-side. They were so close in flavor and appearance, I was taken by surprise. If I'd been blindfolded, I would have been hard-pressed to tell which was which (other than Krystal automatically comes with yellow mustard). While I believe Krystals tasted better before the Davenport family sold the chain, it was gratifying to observe there was no discernable difference in the quality of the burgers when both brands were fresh and on the table. I was blown away and shook my head in disbelief.
That said, I still miss Krystal's icy chocolate shakes, Famous Krystal Coffee, cake doughnuts, waffles, homemade chili, and fried chicken. Oh, yes, and the ceramic plates and mugs.
