AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Fans of White Castle’s beloved square-patty hamburgers flocked to restaurants in the Akron and Cleveland area before the chain’s five northeast Ohio restaurants closed for good at 6 p.m. Christmas Eve.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1AN0MmM ) reports that customers lined up at lunchtime on Wednesday at a White Castle in an Akron suburb to satisfy their oniony “slider” fix. One man told the newspaper he woke up his 13- and 17-year-old sons at 9 a.m. so they could drive an hour for a White Castle feast. The 17-year-old said he once ate 30 sliders over a two-hour period.

Fifty-five White Castles will remain open in the Columbus and Cincinnati areas. The owner of the Columbus-based, family owned chain blamed high beef prices and stagnant revenue for the closings.
