LAS VEGAS — A 24-hour White Castle location on the Las Vegas Strip that opened to long lines of the burger chain’s fans had to close for more than two hours to restock after its grand opening.

The Las Vegas Sun reports the restaurant reopened at about 3:15 p.m. Wednesday.

The burger slider chain’s first location in Las Vegas opened to much fanfare Tuesday afternoon. The nearest location had been more than 1,500 miles away in Missouri.

White Castle is in the Best Western Plus Casino Royale on the Las Vegas Strip in between The Venetian and Harrah’s Las Vegas.
