I had house specialty-- cordon bleh which unfortunately was over cooked. However I opted out of warm potato salad for sauerkraut which was amazing as was their cole slaw. Yummy fresh greens and cranberry sauce were added as a garnish. I was quite full.

WiFi or not...Culver's cannot even compare to home cooked, authentic, German food and atmosphere. (Culver's as good food, is delicious, but it can't compete)

Don't know about wi-fi, but you definitely shouldn't be there for a few hours. It's small & there is often a waiting line.
