“$$$ and wait!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

they always ask you to pull forward and wait! Its supposed to be fast food! Fries are not the greatest. Fish sandwich is great though. Not a very big kiddie menu and the food is a lil on the expensive side

“Great for fast food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Culvers is always clean and the service is great. It is expensive for fast food, but the quality is better than McD's or BK, not quite as good as Portillo's.

“Family Dessert Outings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Overall a clean, well run fast food place. We prefer to skip the lunch or dinner and go for desserts. You can take a family here for a dessert treat and stay under $20. The kids love to pick out their toppings from the display. Not quite as enthusiastic about the burgers and such. They are OK, just hnot what we generally go for. A lot of people come here for the friday fish specials.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

Yes it is fast food, however it is much better than McDonalds or Burger King. In addition to the regular burgers and chicken sandwiches, you can get something similar to a home cooked meal (fried chicken, mashed potatoes, etc.). The food is made to order, not sitting around under a heat lamp. They also have soups and chili everyday, not to mention the frozen custard. Great place to eat and always very clean inside.
