They came and waited hours to get their sliders on Wednesday — and they kept on coming, well after sundown after Arizona’s first White Castle burger restaurant opened its doors near Scottsdale.
A company official estimated the wait to get the famous mini burgers and a variety of other menu items was running about 3½ hours just after 8 p.m.
And — get this — about 500 people still were in a line that extended far outside, undaunted by a wait that exceeded even the most popular rides at Disneyland.
Navaeh Ramirez said she came with her family from Litchfield Park and had been waiting for about four hours as of 8:30 p.m. They planned on sticking it out because they’re White Castle fans.
