Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The reappearance of Godfather's Pizza in Denver has fans hungering for other hard-to-find tastes, including White Castle. But while that chain has plenty of defenders, hundreds of readers chimed in with what they'd like to see in this city — and what they definitely don't want to see. Says Robert: 

Seriously, you live in one of the best food cities in the whole country and you want crap White Castle burgers? What's next, Bojangles?

Replies Richard (and dozens of others):  

We don't want White Castle. We want In-N-Out!

But then there's this from Ilena: 

No White Castle, No In-N-Out. Let Denver be Denver! We need more local restaurants!

Concludes Miguel: 

White Castle ain't no big shakes. Neither is In-N-Out. Quit trying to rally everyone up for foreign chain-burger joints. Grandpa's Jim's — that's Denver burger eating. 

Would Denver's burger scene benefit from the addition of White Castle or In-N-Out? Or should we celebrate our homegrown burgers?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
