Fast food is seductive; it comes in large quantities, cheap prices and delicious aromas and tastes. However, that bang for your buck can explode your diet and get you off track. Sometimes fast food can’t be avoided, but the massive amounts of calories that frequently come with it can be. Check out our White Castle menu under 500 calories.
Unfortunately, there isn't an extremely wide variety of food to order from White Castle; sliders, fries and onion rings are pretty much your only options. But we know you might get that sudden craving for White Castle, so we went ahead and compiled a menu under 500 calories.
Cheese Slider: At 160 calories, this classic slider will satisfy your White Castle craving. However, if you want a healthier alternative, the grilled chicken sandwich doesn't have any fattening breading, and contains 180 calories.

French fries: A small side of fries counts as 330 calories, or you could pick up a kid's serving of onion rings for 210 calories! Pick the fry route and you're at 490 calories, just under our 500 calorie limit. On the other hand, if you chose the onion rings, you'll only be at 370 calories.

Beverage: Opt for a water or unsweetened tea or coffee for zero calories. But if you're in need of a caffeine kick, you might as well throw in a diet soda!
