An influx of White Castle burger lovers caused the newly opened fast-food joint to close for more than two hours to restock.

White Castle opened at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Casino Royale on the Strip, with hungry fans waiting in line up to two hours to get a taste.

The 24-hour restaurant was so slammed that it tweeted about 12:45 p.m. today that it was closing for maintenance and to restock. It reopened about 3:15 p.m.

The new White Castle is the first in Las Vegas. The next closest White Castle is more than 1,500 miles away in Cape Girardeau, Mo.
