White Castle is already on track to open their largest free-standing location in the world here in Orlando later this year, and now they've announced plans to bring more immediate slider action to Central Florida with the opening of a ghost kitchen next week.

On Tuesday, Feb. 23, the virtual doors of a White Castle delivery service will swing wide open. With a kitchen based near John Young Parkway and Colonial Drive, the Castle-curious can order from a "Craver favorites" menu. Delivery orders can be placed through Uber Eats, but have to be within a "15 minute delivery radius."

Takeout orders can be done directly through White Castle's website.

[UPDATE: Many of you tried to order and couldn't get through, so we reached out to White Castle's reps. Here is their reply:

“We knew the first day for our White Castle virtual kitchen would be big – and it has been even bigger than expected!  We did pause on-line ordering to make certain we’re able to take great care of all of our customer orders.  We anticipate being ‘live’ again soon.  Thanks to all for their patience.  We’re looking forward to satisfying White Castle cravings here in the days, months and years to come.”]

Meanwhile, ground was broken on White Castle's 4,567-square-foot mega locale at the Village at O-Town West in late November, with a 2021 opening date still TBA.
