I've lived in this area pretty much all my life and have driven by the White Rose System in Highland Park about a bazillian times, but haven't tried it till today. I always hate it when I do this.
Overall, really good greasy lunch place. (I know all of us on this board don't always enjoy the finer simpler cuisines, but hey what can I say?).
I got the cali-bacon cheeseburger and a side of cheese fries.
The burger is sort of like an over sized white castle, but with better bread. Covered in a layer on steamed onions. There were like 4 or 5 thick, nicely crisp slices of bacon on my burger. Plenty of it, and it was tasty. I can say that the lettuce and tomato kind of overpowered the burger, so next time, I'm going to try a double bacon cheeseburger.. leave the healthy stuff off :-P
Apparently, this has been a local favorite and an RU hangout since like forever. I think this will become a regular lunch stop every other week or so. (Can't have too much grease, I'm round enough as it is!)
The only complaint I could squeeze out was that they only have soda in cans, so I had to get a second one, but it's only a buck a can, so it's no big deal.
