Culvers is consistant and always good.

I got the chicken dinner, which is always great and I get 2 meals out of the deal. You must have their frozen yogurt too, its fabulous.

Stopped thru drive thru to grab a quick bite. We are always altering our orders when we come because everyone likes different things. The service was fast, accurate and fresh. Nice job Culver's of Ankeny!!

We have gotten food here off and on, and the quality keeps getting worse, The burger today might have been one eighth of an inch thick if I stretch it. The fries were thick and soggy. The majority of the time the order is messed up when we have gone through the drive-up. Perhaps ice cream in the future but... More

Nearly as fast as most fast food restaurants but freshly cooked meals. Variety of meals. Something for everyone.

Great burgers and frozen custard treats. Friendly staff, we go during slow periods. I use a wheelchair and someone always runs to open doors for us.

The burgers, fries, onion rings, and salads are all far better than normal fast-food restaurants anywhere else in town. and of course the frozen custard is always fabulous afterwards!! :-)

Food was hot and fresh, but it's typical fast-food fare. But as long as you know that and aren't expecting fine dining, it's fine, because hot and fresh is more than you get from most fast-food places. Upbeat, friendly and cheerful staff.

Recently remodeled and looks good. A great stop when we are passing thru. Usually get the kids meal which is great for seniors. Custard flavors vary each day & spouse loves most of them. Only negative is men's room urinals need good cleaning! Like the free WiFi!
