“Great food”
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.

“Culvers -Fast Casual Burgers”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

Used to grab food from Culvers when traveling through Wisconsin. Culvers is the home of the Butter Burger. Their hamburgers are very good and the buns, with the toasted/warmed butter gives them their signature sandwich. However, Culvers has a number of other items on the menu which really makes this a great place for a family to eat. There are burgers, dinner platters with fish or chicken and then they even have good salads. You can get fries or 'curds' with your 'basket' and the burgers are top 'your way'

The custard is very good also and you can have it with a number of different toppings. They also have Slushies and a drink referred to as a Lemon Ice. Very good!

“Culvers is a sweet treat in South Elgin”
Reviewed December 2, 2007

Not your typical 'fast food restaurant', Culvers serves up some good food and great frozen custard. They now even have 'homestyle' dinner plates. Never had a bad meal at Culver's and have never disapointed. Can't say that for the local McDonalds, they don't even compare.
