So last night, my girlfriend and I had our Valentine's Day dinner at White Castle in Toms River. I'll let you process that for a moment because yes, you read it correctly.....I, Andy Chase,  went to dinner last night at White Castle with my girlfriend ON VALENTINE'S DAY!

For the last few years, White Castle has been doing a special promotion for Valentine's Day. It's not just any night at White Castle...On Valentine's Day, they make it special. I've been wanting to go check it out. And this year, I finally did.

First of all, you need a reservation. They put up decorations, there are candles and tablecloths on the tables, there is waitress service, and it's B.Y.O.B!

It really was a nice night. The place was pretty full. Everyone was in a great mood and plenty of tables were just chatting/laughing with other tables. The service was GREAT. It was a lot of fun actually.

Plus, it was my girlfriend's first time ever at White Castle! When I first mentioned to her a month ago or so that I made a reservation at White Castle for Valentine's Day, she was a little apprehensive, but she was a great sport about it and she was the perfect date!

Of course, we ordered the classics: the sliders, chicken ring sandwiches, fries and onions rings, and she really seemed to enjoy it! Oh yeah...it was also cheap!!!

So if you're looking to do something a little different next year, try it. I recommend it. It was quite enjoyable. You'll avoid all the stress and hectic vibe of all the other typical Valentine's Day restaurants.

And...It was CHEAP!  Not including tip, it cost just a little over $20 bucks!!
