Wayne Stone of Lexington ate his lunch in his truck outside Lexington’s first White Castle, on the restaurant’s opening day, in December 1,1980. The iconic hamburger restaurant, located at New Circle and Bryan Station roads, attracted overflow crowds the day it opened and caused a traffic backup on New Circle.
