A good example of the nostalgic decline of some of the old faithful chains, this White Tower is still cooking in Dayton, Ohio. Only one of two remaining in Dayton, White Tower is an old chain that used to be quite prevalent on the East Coast.

UPDATE 11/00 : The White Tower on 3rd Street is now closed. Signs on the window direct hungry patrons to the 5th St. address. Some may just make the trek over to Wympees across the street. Many thanks to Paul Witek for update. 11-00


UPDATE 09/13 : The White Lotus is clearly the former White Tower on 3rd Street. The awnings say "yummy burger" but it was closed so I could not give it a try. This burger joint is located across the street from Wympee. Many thanks to Richard Weiss for update. 09-13
