The first time I ever heard of Burger Castle was on Don Boyd’s PBase. There’s a great picture of Burger Castle from 1972 at his site.
There isn’t very much information to be found about Burger Castle actually. The menu consisted of their Giant Burger, regular Burger, Fried Chicken, Roast Beef Sandwich, Filet of Fish Sandwich, Fries, Shakes and Soft Drinks.
The logo with the giant was changed at some point to that of the shield which you can see in the ads below. I’ve purchased a Burger Castle shield patch on ebay and from time to time other Burger Castle items surface on there too.
As best as I can tell there were 14 South Florida Burger Castle locations. I’ve listed them below along with google map links to what’s in those locations now. The Perrine location is probably the most interesting as you’ll find out.
The Burger Castle Headquarters was located at 1035 NE 125th St North Miami, FL 33161.

*Another location I found out about courtesy of Phillip Pessar. In the Polk Directory it listed 8865 South Dixie Highway as a Burger Castle location.
