always great food and great selection of food. Have had butter burgers, chicken strips, rubien sandwiches, all was great. Especially enjoy French fries, onion rings, and cheese curds. Ice cream custard, as a sundae, shake, or concrete mixer is always a favorite. Have only had one thing that I don't like and that is tenderloins only because Iowa has some... More

We love Culvers...We go to Culvers all the time and usually have no problems. But this Culvers served me a very burnt (black toast) patty melt. I found it funny just the one side was burnt and it was served to me with the unburned side up, like I wouldnt notice! I am usually pretty forgiving, but then they forgot... More

Was impressed with the menu items. Of course it is fast food, but the quality for fast food is pretty good. They have the crinkle cut fries which are my favorite.

Ice cream desserts are big and delicious. You can get ice cream or frozen yogurt. They also do plate lunches like chicken and... More

If you have never been in a Culver's you have to try it. The hamburgers remind of the good old days when they were cooked on a flat top grill. The custard is great....although I stick to vanilla...seems that is the way it is just supposed to be....nothing flavored and nothing extra.

Took the wife for an ice cream. The have a decent variety. The custard is made a little different so it's thicker. Maybe it was just the thickness but it didn't seem that special.
