Never a doubt about stopping at Culvers for a full meal or just a custard treat. Love the variety and the quick service and decent pricing. Beats normal fast-serve restaurants and usually is friendly and reliable service. If in doubt... always stop at Culvers... wherever you see one!

It was fine, I felt like I was overpaying for basically the same food I can get at any other drive thru. So many great places to eat in owatonna, do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

We live midway between the Culvers store in Owatonna, and the Austin, MN. locations. I have always enjoyed Culvers restaurants--they offer a variety of dishes (freshly cooked to order), home-made custard, and real malted milks. The burgers have the buns toasted--it's as close as you can get to an old-fashioned hamburger. The waiters bring your food out to you--and I'm... More

We stopped at this restaurant this past June. The menu board said two toppings at no charge with a sundae. However, the lady who seemed to be in charge said you only get one, and she didn't know why the menu board said that you get two. She then made the sundae much smaller than other Culver's restaurants do for... More

The hamburgers are always way over done. The frys are real bad, but you can mashed potatos isstead. Nice option. Only go there when someone else picks.

Very good burgers and frozen custard. The french fries are the crinkle cut style and have lots of potato in them. Also, everything is made upon request so the food is always hot. I particularly enjoy the chocolate malts.

I've tried many things on the menu. Broasted chicken has no flavor. Fries are boring flavorless crinkle cuts. Burgers are greasy

Food is great, restaurant is clean, employees are friendly. Pretty typical - no surprises. I mean that in a good way. I know exactly what to expect when I visit a Culvers, that's why I keep going back, and this one is no different.
