I have never seen a White Castle, except in a movie. We have “Krystal Burger” which looks very similar. You get a bag of like 9 burgers in tiny boxes.
I know a lot of the fast food places I have been to have more open kitchens…when I stand at the counter to order, I can clearly see the people preparing the food. I’m sure there are those icky types that attempt to do gross things, but they could be seen clearly by any customer…so they would be caught immediately.
I know enough people in food service to not be that concerned w/ how my food is being handled. The servers only care about getting the orders right & to the table in a good amount of time…and the preparers don’t have any contact with the customers (so wouldn’t know if the customers are rude)...and the servers leave the order with the preparers, and COULD indicate something gross needs to be done…but why would the preparer put himself at risk…for someone who is being rude to someone else?
All the stories my friends have told me is that they “heard” someone did something…they had never actually seen it/done it. Most of the managers in charge of the servers & preparers…were around enough so that it would be hard to do something gross, b/c if there were ever a REAL problem, not only would the preparers be in trouble…but so would the managers. Managers don’t get bonuses when there are bad reports from the health department.
Chary…If White Castle burgers are anything like a Krystal burger…I hate them, too. ICK!
