In its 90th year of existence, the famed White Castle fast-food restaurant has moved online with an Internet-based ordering system for cities in New York and New Jersey to Illinois. The company has 400 locations in seven states.

White Castle's online ordering system requires free registration and then lets the user direct an order to their closest restaurant via an interactive map. Customers are then prompted to the virtual menu, where they can build their order and pay online or when they pick up their order, the company said. .  The company said the online service will be particularly useful for those who order its Crave Cases which feature 30 to 100 of the little burgers.

White Castle said it tested the service in March in Minneapolis and has now expanded it to all its restaurants.  "Slider nirvana" is just a click away, the company said
