I remember my first Krystal.

Downtown Birmingham, Alabama.
I think they were 13 cents apiece?
OK, they were tiny, but you could get a HALF DOZEN for 78 cents?
WHOA!

And now we call them 'sliders'.

3. In the Northeast they were called WhiteCastle burgers

I seem to remember they were 10 cents each in 1962.
You can now buy them frozen in a big box at the market.

9. It was a long time ago.

WC was north and K was south.
I don't think WC knew.

11. White Castle started in 1921, Krystal in 1932

It was a simpler time.

6. Sliders

Tiny square hamburgers.
Krystal is one fast food joint that serves them.
White Castle is the other.

14. Ah, memories from my youth

Mother would give my sister and I a dollar each. We would ride the trolley to "town" aka Atlanta. We would have 2 Krystals and a coke each, see a Disney movie and ride home. The dollars were gone, but that was a real treat! This would have been in the mid to late 1950's.
