COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Valentine's Day revelers seeking a romantic dinner in an unconventional setting are being offered reservations at fast food chain White Castle.
The Columbus-based eatery, which has made Valentine's Day reservations an annual tradition, said locations around the country will be offering romantic dinners with table-side service from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m. Feb. 14.
The restaurant said the menu will include White Castle's iconic sliders, as well as specialty items including shrimp nibblers and strawberry and cream waffles.
"Valentine's Day has become a fun tradition for us. For many couples, White Castle holds a special place in their hearts. Many have fond memories of first dates here, some even met for the first time at a White Castle -- and then there's the few who shared their wedding vows among friends and family in our dining room," said Jamie Richardson, vice president of White Castle. "For a lot of our Cravers, White Castle is where they first met, so enjoying Sliders together on Valentine's Day brings back a feeling of nostalgia. This is a wonderful event for many of our guests who have shared memorable moments at our restaurants over the years."
Richardson said reservations are expected to fill quickly at participating locations.
"Every year, reservations fill up quickly at many locations," Richardson said. "We encourage Cravers everywhere to contact us as soon as possible to ensure they get a table. Many people don't realize how popular Valentine's Day at White Castle is until they experience it for themselves. And love doesn't stop with Valentine's Day – we have couples who will actually marry in White Castles later this year."
