    We used to call Littel Taverns 'Club LT,' all the employees were excons. Colorful places after closing time, real R.Crumb slice o' life sorta scenes. I never imagined anyone would want to recreate the food.

    In my area, the franchise that makes these is called White Castle.  At least you use real meat, so I know they have to be better.

    Where did you find the recipes? I'm very interested in this kind of history.

    I grew up in Bethesda, MD. and recall…. vividly, 2 AM Little Tavern runs. I just made some from your recipe and they are about the same. I am sure that the "sauce" that is the hunger of an 18 year old is much different than that of a 50 year old. But they taste the same. Can't eat a whole bag anymore though.

    Can I add this to the little tavern website?

    The most important thing that has been missed is the burgers were stored in steam drawers that kept them hot and the buns really soft.

    I miss these little burgers so much.  I used to go to the Little Tavern in DC located at 13th and Ingraham, NW.  It would stay open until the wee hours of the morning,  I would get four of the cheeseburgers with pickle and mustard.  Lawdamercy!  Geez, I wish someone would bring back those burgers! There is a place in Laurel, MD that comes close to the original.

    Enjoyed your video. I loved "slop shop" lil' hamburgers. (That's what we called the Lil Tavern where I lived.) My dog even bagged his own burgers regularly. He would disappear for a while, and come back with a bag of burgers — and wouldn't touch them until he got home. I was concerned. One day, I went to the Lil Tavern, with my dog on a leash. The guy came outside, and said "I was wondering where you've been." And then proceeded to hand Laddie his own bag of burgers. Funny as heck. Our never had cheese on them, unless you requested. I always liked them just they way there were – sans cheese. I don't think they used seasoned salt back in those days. Plain salt & pepper were just fine. Thanks for the wonderful memories.

    Yesterday afternoon I purchased mini burgers at the Little Tavern in Laurel, MD. It doesn't use potato rolls. IIRC, neither did the Little Tavern in College Park in the 1980s. Otherwise I like the video. Brings back good memories!

    As a teenager in the 1950's I ate all the time at the Little Tavern on Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown – Washington, DC. I saw them cook burgers hundreds of times. They cost a dime for the small ones and 25 cents for the large. They also sold Cambells soup and soda's.

    Nice Work Amigo..Oh and you can google this, Little Tavern's are making a comeback to the DC and MD area..You can buy a LT franchise It looks extremely promising!!

    Thank you for watching Jeff! I too agree, the mustard did the trick! The last one closed up, a little over a year ago….forgot the exact location! Thanks again for watching!

    It was the mustard that really made em, haven't had it since they went away.

  23. TheWolfePit

    August 12, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    Carol, I've got to try that method!! Growing up in N.C. every hot dog or hamburger you ordered, had the bun run through the steamer and it adds a totally different dimension to the texture for the better! Thanks for the idea and for watching!!

  24. Carol Campbell

    I too make these but I wrap the finished ones in a paper towel and foil, let them rest for 10 minutes while cooking more and they taste just like they came out of that little"steam cabinet". Loved those little bergers.

    Thank you Richard! I'm so happy to see someone that remembers Little Taverns!! Thanks for watching!

    They look very authentic. I recall clearly at the Wheaton and Georgia Ave locations, that you were given the choice of ketchup, mustard, or mustard/ketchup which was pre-mixed in it's own squeeze bottle. Thanks for posting!

    Hmmm peanut butter… I can envision that working. White castle just had that unique smell that requires something unordinary like peanut butter or babyfood lol

    The little buns are cool, Looks great Boy!

    I'm gonna give that a try. My buddy Ammohead72 did a great video on White Castles, one of the ingredient is peanut butter! His looked awesome! I'm gonna try your version and his. My daughter absolutely loved the sliders, so I know we'll eat them again soon! Thanks for watching.

    hey Larry have u seen in the White Castle knockoffs they call for a jar of beef babyfood to a lb. of ground beef. sounds crazy but its good. as soon as the burger hits the pan it smells like White Castle

    Looks like they turned out great! They look a lot like the burgers we got in years past at White Castle, simple but SO good! Next burger day I need to whip up a batch of these.

    Thanks for the well done demonstration with excellent close ups of those delicious juicy sliders! I never had Little Tavern's burgers but yours look irresistible.Once, I spent hours trying to recreate White Castle burgers with perfectly square patties and 5 tiny holes in each square of beef. Yours look easier and tastier!

    August 12, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    Well, I say make them again!!! LOL I mess up in the kitchen a lot, those are the videos you guys don't see!!! But the best thing about over salting or burning something is, you get to make it again and really enjoy it!!! Thanks Von!!!!

    I made the sliders (with the reconstituted onions) and the potato wedges and both were delicious! I got a little carried away with the seasoning on the potatoes though. They were extremely salty (MY FAULT!). I used Lawry's season salt, garlic powder, paprika, black pepper & onion salt. (I was out of onion powder. 🙁 ) Next time I'll be more careful. They were cooked perfectly, though! Thanks for telling me how to make them!

    I have the same onion issue…and they give me migraines. I have found that if I saute them until golden, not only do I not have the pain, they are rather tasty!

    Love hamburgers with lots of onion, they look awesome Larry and those chips, yummo!

    Sliders are awesome as your vids.. I swear we both love the same stuff… almost every one of your vids is something I love to eat or cook.. Also… perfect color and doneness to those crinkle cuts.

    them baby burgers sure looked good

  45. Vonesh L

    August 12, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    Thank you bunches! Gonna go put them on now. I'm also gonna cook my sliders like you did. I've got my onions rehydrating now. I love raw onions, but they don't love me! lol! Hoping I can still have the onion flavor without the heartburn I get with raw ones. Thanks again!!!

    Never heard of that place, looks good though, I suppose they are like white castle or krystal burgers?

  47. TheWolfePit

    August 12, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    I haven't done a video, but they're easy. Toss your wedges in olive oil, season with salt and pepper and any other herbs or spices you like. Then into a 375º oven for 25-30 minutes, flipping at the halfway point. Cook until tender and golden brown!

  48. Vonesh L

    August 12, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    Well I figured out how to search your channel, but I didn't find potato wedges. Have you done a video on them?

  49. Vonesh L

    August 12, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    Its is so funny that you are making sliders! I bought some wonderful dinner rolls and I decided to make bacon cheeseburger sliders tonight! I was just about to search your channel for a recipe for potato wedges to go with them, and saw this video!! Haven't watched it yet, but I'm about to. I don't know what youtube changed, but it's hard to search for something specific on the channels now. 🙁 I will give it another try after I watch this one!
