Plans For Brick White Castle Hit Delay

Restaurant chain has six months to revive application

Plans by the White Castle restaurant chain to build a location in Brick have languished before the planning board with no action for more than two years, leading to a denial without prejudice by the board.

At its meeting Wednesday night, the board technically denied the restaurant chain's application to construct a location at 2778 Hooper Avenue – the former site of a gas station near the corner of Hooper and Brick Boulevard – but said the company could revive its application any time in the next six months.

The board never actually heard the company's case to build a restaurant in Brick because every time it was placed on the agenda, the company asked for it to be rescheduled, officials said. The back-and-forth has gone on for more than two years.

"No matter what, this is certainly a denial without prejudice," said board attorney Joseph D. Coronato, adding that he contacted White Castle's attorneys as a courtesy and told them his recommendation to the board would be such a denial.

"He indicated to me that he had no objection to this," said Coronato, referring to the White Castle attorney.

If the company does not revive its application within six months, it would have to submit a new application to the board at a future date.

This isn't an upscale town. If you're expecting it to be, or become one, you are set up for a supreme disappointment. If you don't like fast food joints, there's a wonderful solution: DON'T GO TO THEM. There are plenty of eating establishments you could enjoy. Have a nice meal at Villa Vittoria. You can stare out the window at all us fat, poor people driving home from working like suckers.

I don't know I am either working, or at the gym during the day ... sadly people are going to get more unhealthy fast food & junk food is generally cheaper than healthy food, I don't know about anyone else .. but have not seen a raise in 3 yrs ( in fact making less than I was 10 yrs ago) BUT I 'm happy to have a job.... btwn gas prices & the cost of food that usually takes up my entire paycheck VERY thankFul that my husband does ok( he too no raise in 4 yrs) I don't know who is going to all these restaurants, with my self & husband working there is no extra money for going out to eat... I guess those who have their expenses & food paid by taxpayers that go to work every day. they have disposable income & can go out to eat on the gvmts. check.. YOUR WELCOME!

I don't expect it to be, I,m not disappointed, I don't like fast food joints, I don't go to them and don't be so sensitive. I live in Brick and it is not what it was. It is what it has become.

1:16 am on Friday, October 12, 2012 I agree knarfie. Brick Township used to be a pretty nice place to be. Now it has become a place where businesses go to die. Our stores have become fallen down junkpiles filled with cheap chinese crapola. They remind me of a Mexican groceria.If it isn't the lowest common denominator type clientele it goes out of business leaving behind vacant buildings. Most of our restaurantsare fried,fast food fattycake castles. Our once nice town, like much of society was sacrificed at the altar of consumptive greed. I wish we could turn back the hands of time. I don't eat fast food either. Yuk.

Thats so they (men and women) can look so hot in their Walmart sweatpants.

Lets tear down as much as we can in Brick through either foreclosure or eminent domain. Our stretch or Brick Blvd looks like crap compared to Toms River.
clamdigger October 12, 2012 at 11:59 AM
what this town really needs is a simple good 'ole fashion go-go joint w/ lots of neon lights and a big marquee out front. cute young girls "working their way through" whatever it is they choose. a place that serves simple good food,cold beer on tap,has some pool tables and video games and lots of tv's to kick back and watch some games. of course a ladies night or two wouldn't hurt either to get the wives and girlfriends outta the house,pump some booze in them and send 'em home hot n bothered to keep hubby happy hence making life here in Brick a little more bearable.

PIG!!! GO TO SEASIDE. OR ASBURY ALLTHE PROSTITUTES YOU NEED ,WITHOUT GOING TO PRETEND YOUR GOING OUT FOR A BEER WITH THE GUYS... I guess the only way you can get a woman to have sex with you is if their pumped up with booze & not know any better
Glenn October 12, 2012 at 01:07 PM
Lola, just the chubby ones.
clamdigger October 12, 2012 at 01:29 PM
OK lola, the how about just a plain old HOOTERS,will that make you happy.
jenna 3 October 13, 2012 at 12:22 PM
@ glenn & clamdigger... WOW you two sound like winners, in order for you to get a woman to come home with you they need to be chubby & drunk ! I guess you can take down the Red lion, but ya can't take the Red lion out of some people
clamdigger October 13, 2012 at 01:22 PM
hello jenna 3; i'm a true blue American male. I love motorcycles,cars w/ tons of horsepower, good burgers,cold beer,sports and don't mind handing out a few singles to cute,half naked young women w/ the guts enough to get up and shake it. I've been with the same woman for 20 years and she knows where I go and when I go and has no problem with any of it. We both work hard and like to enjoy life and some of it's simple pleasures. I'm not condoning prostitution or forced sex slave endevors,but a good simple go go club isn't the end of the world. To each their own. You women that are oppose to the idea,are you afraid you husbands or boyfriends might get a chance to go out and have some fun?
jenna 3 October 13, 2012 at 01:37 PM
not true at all, my husband goes out every week, just the comment that needing to get your woman pumped with liquor for your please was insulting to any woman & if you have been the same woman for 20 yrs that just means no other woman would put up with you ... sounds like the perfect couple did ya meet her at the Red or arrow head drunk after 2am ?
jenna 3 October 13, 2012 at 01:38 PM
sounds like you're the reason people use the degrading term Bricktucky
clamdigger October 13, 2012 at 07:37 PM
@jenna 3 so i take it you've never gone out w/ friends, for a girls night out (ever) had a few cocktails and come home to your husband (boyfriend,fiancee or lover) feeling a bit amorous and friskey. as for you comment of " if you have been the same woman for 20 yrs that just means no other woman would put up with you" that's quite an indictment on the whole premise of marriage and monogamy. I am not encouraging anyone to step out on their other half nor have I ever crossed the line, but I certainly enjoy the "fine line" that's out there and I can say my conscience is perfectly clear. i guess I might say the same for you, who would put up with you if you have the insecurity of men going to a strip club or a club where there are women dancers. Have you read "50 Shades" yet? maybe you should and lighten up. And no i didn't meet my better half at the Lion or Arrow, we met at a $2,500 a plate fundraiser for breast cancer at a county club.
clamdigger October 14, 2012 at 02:09 AM
@ jenna 3; so tell me, is this your 1st or 2nd husband? don't lie now i know you already mentioned in another thread you were a single mother of 3 at one time. http://brick.patch.com/articles/arrest-made-in-convenience-store-robbery "I was a single white legal, mother of 3"
brickmom2 October 14, 2012 at 03:25 AM
@ clamdigger, get a life & spend time with your woman or at a go go bar whatever you prefer ... either way you seem to spend a lot on here ,,, Dont you have something better else to do ?
clamdigger October 14, 2012 at 04:24 AM
i have a life, we do spend a ton of time together, i haven't stepped foot in a go go bar in probably 15yrs, i post as time allows and to what topics i want to chime in on. one thing i've noticed though,the phrase "you seem to spend a lot on here ,,, Dont you have something better else to do?" is a common question posted to people which say things that are not what others agree with. sometimes i just like to stir the pot a little.
GS340 October 14, 2012 at 11:42 AM
My God! What does all this have to do with White Castle?
clamdigger October 14, 2012 at 08:42 PM
absolutely nothing. nada,zip,ziltch. it is what happens though when you post a comment that is contrary to the beliefs of insecure women or what is PC. it was fine for others to post what they would like instead of a White Castle, I see my idea was met w/ some resistance and I'm certainly not going to be pecked at by a few women.
Mark Story Jenks October 14, 2012 at 10:07 PM
Maybe the franchise should change the name, to keep up with the 21st century. Instead of White Castle, call it Mulatto Bungalow.
Gene Jouben October 16, 2012 at 08:27 PM
A White Castle would bring some local jobs to Brick Especially for the kids trying to make money for college

i felt more comfortable when my ex would go to t*tty bars than to the local joints.

Brick needs a white Castle.Its not like all the other Fast food places reduce weight. White castle has been around longer than mcdonalds. Arby's tried and failed with their rubbery beef.Time for a change,sliders rock.
