“Great Burgers, Fries & Milk Shake”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Even though I've lived in Wisconsin for a few years, I've only recently discovered Culver's. I had thought they were only an "ice cream" place (or custard as it's known locally.) With the mainly overpriced and disappointing food I had in Lake Geneva, WI, one day, for lunch, I decided to try the local Culver's Restaurant which was very highly reviewed, here on Trip Advisor.

Well, guess what? The Trip Advisor raters were right! The hamburger I had (a double cheeseburger without the famous "butter" on the bun, but with mayo, mustard, tomatoes, lettuce and pickles) was superb. At Culver's, unlike the big chains, you tell them what you want on your burger. Mine had everything I like on a burger and I was in heaven. The fries were thick cut, ridged affairs, perfectly crispy and hot, and my malted milk shake was thick and creamy with real fresh ice cream (not the softie kind!) All-in-all, for this type of a meal (i.e. fast food,) one cannot go wrong by eating at Culver's. It was absolutely fresh, delicious and a down-right bargain, in light of the ridiculously overpriced menus in Lake Geneva! Go... and enjoy a Wisconsin treat, Culver's~.

What a great place to dine. Great food and deserts. Eat here if you want a good meal and the best service in Lake Geneva.

Decided to have a quick bite to eat before heading home from a stay at local resort. Service was very friendly and quick. Food was hot and delicious.

“Always Great Food”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We live in the area so we go to Culver's a couple times a month(more if we get coupons in the paper). Absolutely LOVE their double butter burger. Sandwich is bigger than your mouth and so moist. Also love their pot roast sammy & the fish dinner. The fries are also the best on Wells St

“All Hail Butterburgers!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Who doesn't love a Butterburger??? Maybe if you're vegetarian in which case your vote doesn't really apply. Bring on the Cheesecurds too! Diehard Culvers fan, its a thing to be proud of here in Wisconsin...Most other states just don't know what they're missing out on :(
