(Nerd) Lunch Special: Culver’s ButterBurger

The_Culvers_DeluxeThe name Culver’s probably doesn’t mean anything to those outside the Midwest. The burger chain started in Wisconsin and still has most of their locations in the Upper Midwest. While they offer some uniquely Midwest items like pork tenderloins and fried cheese curds, Culver’s specialties are quick seared ButterBurgers and frozen custard. I recently had a free afternoon and a coupon burning a hole in my pocket, so I headed off to my local Culver’s for dinner.

I opted for the Double Deluxe which comes fully loaded with mayonnaise, pickles, onions, lettuce, tomato, and American cheese. The sammich is reminiscent of a Wendy’s Double, if the Wendy’s burger were executed to perfection. To quote Jules Winnfield, “this is a tasty burger”.

I did not get any frozen custard this time, but Culver’s nails that too. They feature a rotating flavor of the day as well as sundaes, shakes, and the Concrete Mixer, their version of DQ’s Blizzard. Since it’s unlikely I’ll make it to Custard Cup soon, I’ll be getting my next custard fix from Culver’s.

Sorry I stayed away so long, Culver’s. I’ll be seeing you again soon.

    That's an apt description, CT. Steak n Shake crossed my mind after I posted this, but since we don't have SnS or Sonic in this area they're no longer top of mind.

    One thing I didn't mention in the post is that the prices for core menu items like burgers and fries are quite reasonable. I hadn't been to Culver's since before the commodities price spikes of 2008, so I was expecting prices to have swelled to Arby's levels. Not the case at all.

    I've said before that the Culver's ButterBurger is a little bit like what if a Steak & Shake burger and a Sonic burger had a baby together and that baby grew up to be a big ol' football playin' burger.

    I miss Culver's and make it a point to eat there as often as possible whenever we head back north. Although, my waistline has benefited from not being arould Culver's, so there's that.
