Put your hands together for Victor Gradowski, a Bronx accountant who has made NYC proud by getting into the White Castle Hall of Fame. The fast food chain invites customers to write stories about their transcendental experiences at White Castle, and this year the company received 1,350 nominees, from which just 13 new inductees were chosen to serve as eager tools in the marketing campaign. Gradowski is one of those proud winners, and explains how he made it to the top.

Gradowski has eaten dinner at White Castle every Friday night after work for the past four years. His routine involves picking up a "sack" (to use the company's parlance) of five cheeseburgers and a couple sacks of onion rings. As a thank-you for his dedication, he is being rewarded with an all-expense paid trip to the White Castle home office in Columbus, Ohio, followed by a private dinner at the Ohio Historical Society. Guess who didn't make the cut? Sgt. Theyer Castro (scroll down), a Queens native who was awoken from a coma after six weeks because he caught a whiff of White Castle.

"I feel very, very honored, very excited," Gradowski tells the Daily News. "It's almost like a dream come true... [White Castle] puts a smile on my face. It's the greatest thing to have after a week's end of work... I will never be President; I will never be a football player. But I am a White Castle Hall of Famer." And what criteria sets Gradowski apart? White Castle says a Hall of Fame "craver" is "not just a person but a state of being. It’s going beyond, staying up and driving far. It’s road-tripping two hours just to reach the nearest sack of Sliders. And it’s coaching friends on what to order, how to eat it and then how best to stack the boxes." In other words, be an insufferable glutton willing to be an unpaid poster boy for a multi-million dollar fast food chain. It's all downhill from here, Gradowski.
