The largest White Castle in the world is inherently a site for comical juxtapositions. The chain's incredibly tiny burgers are bound to be dwarfed by the looming fast food outpost. We're not sure if that's what builders had in mind when they raised the upcoming location's sign over its soon-to-be home at the The Village at O-Town West, but the effect was there regardless.

That Orlando would be the home of the largest White Castle is no surprise. Overly large fast-food spots are a fixture on International Drive, and the demand is certainly there. When White Castle launched a ghost kitchen offering delivery earlier this year, enthusiasm was so great that it overwhelmed the staff and caused the company to scrap the project. The company plans to be ready when the new location opens, however. They hope to hire as many as 120 employees for the cavernous White Castle.

The 4,567-square-foot restaurant still doesn't have an opening date, but they plan to open before the spring is out.
