INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- Despite how terrible the food is, I decided to stop in after a long bus ride. This isn't about the food. It's about the unique and terrifying experience of eating fast food in America. After finishing my food and sitting down with a drink refill, a booming male voice informed us (the customers) the site is under video and audio surveillance. There is to be no loitering. People who just sat down with their food were told they must leave immediately or the police would appear. The announcer, who probably called in remotely, got a sick thrill from frightening everyone. Even the employees stood still in fear. I'm never eating at a hole like this again.
KENOSHA, WISCONSIN -- Visited White Castle yesterday. Only 3 cars in front of me. Took 20 minutes to get to window. I asked for 6 White Castles, hold the pickles. Instead I got twice the amount of pickles and double the onions. It was the worst burger ever. The onions slipped out onto my clothing and all over my new car. Disgusting. I won't be back for a very long time, if ever.
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- On 12/04/2013 time: 21:37:28 Batch and Reference: ** Authorization: ** - My family and I love White Castle and has been coming to this Restaurant for years to eat. Last month we ordered $27.00 worth of food. As I got to the window a team member had explained to my husband and I that any customer that spends over $25.00 in one transaction gets 2 gift cards, one for $25.00 that's reloadable and just a free $5.00 gift card if we add .50 with our order. We both agreed sure why not. Our total we spent in cash was $27.50 and the team member handed me 2 receipts. One for our meal and another showing $25.00 on one gift card and $5.00 gift card.
The bottom of that receipt says Card Activated Gift Trans Number: **! Now on the back of the 25.00 gift card it say's it's reloadable after first use and $5.00 gift card says it's valid and redeemable starting 01/01/2014 until 02/28/2014! With today being a holiday New Years Day, we thought it would be a great time to use these cards. My husband had try buying a 30 crave case box and 2 sacks of fries. When he gave the member the gift cards to pay for our order he said there was no funds on either card though we never spent it because we could not use it today. I know we did not misunderstand a thing the employee had said because there were 2 of us.
As a loyal customer and being a store manager in retail myself the customer is always right. Your employee did not explain the offer right and gave us a false advertisement or ripped us off. I'm not asking for reimbursement but it would be nice if they could make it right over some redeemable coupons or something. I'm so disgusted that someone could try to rip off 2 senior citizens and think it's OK to get away with it cause they think us older people are stupid and senile!
FRESNO, RHODE ISLAND -- I received my pre-lit Ontario Spruce 7.5 ft. tree sooner than expected, that was good. Spent a long time fluffing it and there were still too many gaps. I grew up in Ontario and have always loved the look of those trees but the tree I received did not come close in color or shape to a spruce tree.
The spruce trees in Ontario are a silvery, bluish green - this one is very dark green in color. The tree tips are lifelike but are very short - so you see the rest of the branches that do not look natural. Also had a hard time getting it back into its box and was told when I called Tree Classic that I should have ordered a bag for storage. Duh - why wasn't I told that when I bought it? I would not recommend buying from this company...
NEW CASTLE, INDIANA -- I took my daughter out to lunch [we don't get to do this often]...so she chose WHITE CASTLE in NEW CASTLE, INDIANA. We placed our order. She got a cheeseburger, fries, and a drink and I ordered two fish sandwiches, fries, and a drink. I was not satisfied! My fish was cold and dried out, the fries were tasteless, and the dining area was disgusting...not clean at all! I won't be back unless they make this right.
LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY -- I ordered and paid for White Castle burgers with cheese. The burgers did not have cheese. When I brought it back in to the restaurant they refused to remake my food. They tried to put cold cheese on my burger. So I asked for a refund. It has been six weeks, I still have not received my refund. Very dissatisfied with the customer service.
ARNOLD, MISSOURI -- There were only two other people when we entered the restaurant, so they were not busy. We ordered double cheese burgers that were cold. We also ordered cheese fries that were under cooked. Then I went to eat my chicken sandwich and the bun was crunchy like it had been sitting. Needless to say we won't be eating there anymore! To top it all off the soda was even flat!
VAN DYKE AVE, MICHIGAN -- Several trips to this White Castle in the last 2 months have resulted in less than acceptable burgers. They are not steaming these burgers such that they have less taste and the onions are dry, the patties are fragmented. This is not the way you prepare White Castles. Steaming is half of it. The personnel at the window are friendly. But the burgers suck. Let's get this act together. I will boycott this White Castle until they remedy this problem.
BRONX, NEW YORK -- I went into the White Castle in the Bronx NY and ordered $46.00 of food. When I went to pay, they would not accept any bills larger than 20's. I only had a larger bill on me and they refused to serve me. If I have US money, I should have been served. This is America, the last time I looked.
WHITEHALL, PENNSYLVANIA -- I had visited the White Castle on MacArthur Rd in Whitheall Pa on Nov 20 2011 and purchased $54.47 of food. When I got home some of the food was raw and uncooked so I called and spoke to a woman that took my name and order number a list of items that were raw and stated for me to come in to get the food replaced... Today Nov 27th I was passing by so I stopped to get the food and was giving the food without hesitation which made me a happy customer.
As I proceeded to my car in the parking lot I was chased down by a caucasian male who was yelling that he gave me the replacement food already last week and has my plate number down... I knew he was lying and when I approached him and confronted him he stated never mind and went back in the White Castle... So frustrated from the embarrassment from him yelling at me in front of all the people in the parking lot, I went back in the store to get his name and he and other workers refused to give me his name which I found out was **.
Then I was threatened by a caucasian woman that they were going to call the police... I then left the White Castle and called the police myself and got a incident number for the report... I just don't know why he lied like that. I am under the assumption that due to me being a hispanic minority, he didn't believe me and made up a lie to back up his accusations. I still have my receipt and if he gave me the food already and has my plate number, then me and my vehicle should be on their surveillance cameras which I am 150% sure its not... cause I was never there prior to today and the original date of purchase.
Please help me with any advice or measures to take to prevent this from happening to any other innocent customers. I have posted numerous reviews and also filed a complaint with BBB. I will be contacting the corporate office Monday morning as well. Thank you for listening and any help would be very much appreciated.
