This new location is the largest free-standing White Castle in the world, the company said in a news release, as the restaurant makes its return to the Sunshine State for the first time since the 1960s.

Customers will find indoor and outdoor dining at the 4,567-square foot restaurant which will have two drive-thru lanes.

White Castle will be located in southwest Orlando at the new The Village of O-Town West development.
