When Louie Stotz was 8 years old, he suffered terrible migraines that often kept him out of school.

That all ended one day when the boy got a migraine while visiting the furniture store where his grandfather worked in Louisville, which sat across the street from a White Castle. Stotz, now 72, said his father employed the best remedy he knew.

“He took me over there and gave me some coffee,” Stotz said. “I have not had a headache since.”

Thus was born a lifelong love of White Castle.

“White Castle really is the Crave that Saves,” Stotz wrote. “As a child, it saved me from migraines and taught me to love great coffee. It was my ‘taste of home’ in the Army, saving me from feeling homesick. With burgers just a few cents each, it always saves me cold hard cash. And when my finicky family is choosing a restaurant, it always saves the day!”

His adoration paid off last week, when White Castle inducted Stotz, of Lexington, into its Cravers Hall of Fame.
