I was born in Miami in 1953 and moved away in 1963. As a kid we ate there frequently, at the counter since there were no tables or booths. The beverage I remember drinking with the burgers was "birch beer" in an icy mug. One form of advertising they used was a local TV show for kids on WTVJ, I think. It was called the "Royal Castle Fun Club" and was hosted by the same guy who played M. T. Graves on the Saturday horror movie matinee. What I would give for a bunch of burgers and a birch beer today!

I REMEMBER WHITE CASTLE AS A KID IN THE 6OS IN FLORIDA ...THERE WAS ONE IN DAYTONA AND I REMEMBER ONE ON US # 1 IN TITISVILE.......IF ANYONE OUT THERE KNOWS OF A RC SITE PLEASE LET ME KNOW
the real story of the Orange Julius is it came in a powder, all we did was add the orange juice to the mix and put it in a blinder. we no longer sell the drink . For the same great burger, visit Royal Castle at 2700 nw 79th street in Miami,Florida at this same location since 1950, renovaited in 1965.
I was looking for info on �Orange Julius,� a drink I remember from my Miami Florida childhood (late 60's and 70's)�.from Royal Castle....Odd how those flavors of our youth are so vivid and joyous�.I do remember those burgers....perfect for kids, with the onions and all....
I discovered that Orange Julius was created by a man named Julius in the late 20�s, and tons of people on the web have very strong opinions regarding the �special� ingredients. I am thinking a little egg white and cream of tartar will be the trick� opinions vary, I presume, based on store location. I honestly thought the Orange Julius drink was native to Royal Castle ---- to learn the true history today is pretty cool�.
