The last 2 Royal Castles left in Miami are owned by 2 different people. There is Arnold’s Royal Castle and this one is owned by James Brimberry. Carlos Miller’s excellent article on Royal Castle can give you a better overview of Royal Castle’s history (see below). Both locations are open 24 hours. Both locations also serve Castleburgers (sliders) and Feastburgers (regular sized). The Castleburgers at this location were better than at Arnold’s Royal Castle.
They do put the buns on the griddle to warm/toast them a little and to absorb some flavor. I really liked the Feastburger. It reminded me of what Hardee’s burgers tasted like back in the 1980′s.
I think the secret here lies in the Pickles, Mustard & Ketchup on the bottom and the Tomato, Onion and Mayo on the top. The Fast Food Holy Trinity of Sauces (Ketchup, Mustard and Mayo) can give your burger a distinct flavor necessary when it’s this type of burger.
The fries were crinkle cut, not greasy but just standard stuff. If you’re trying to decide which Royal Castle to visit, I’d suggest both. They’re 10 minutes from each other. If you’re a true burger fan, you’d make the visits on the same trip.
