The Butter Burger is King!

  • Nov 2, 2009

Have you ever been sorely disappointed by a fast-food burger? Of course you have, that’s why it’s called fast-food. But if you’ve ever been to Culver’s, you will never hear a complaint. Culver’s isn’t really fast-food, is great-food served really fast.
Culver’s doesn’t start cooking your burger until you order it. So there are no heat lamps or microwaves designed to imitate a freshly prepared burger. The burgers come hot off the grill with all the original juices and flavors that the burger gods intended. All of the toppings are freshly cut and placed on your burger with the care and skill of an employee who doesn’t despise you or your order.
The Butter Burger is a delectable fusion of butter and hamburger. The butter, by its well-known and magical alchemy, protects and infuses the burger with a tasty flavor so delicious that you need to safeguard your shirt with a napkin so as to avoid the eating miscues that accompany the enthusiastic frenzy of eating a well-cooked piece of meat. The Butter Burger sets a high standard for the kind of fast-food this restaurant chain purveys. From their fries to their chicken tenders, the Culver experience is top-notch.  
As a Wisconsin original, Culvers also takes great pride in their dairy products, so be sure to try out their sundaes, creamy shakes, cheese fries and curds, and the Oreo frozen custard sandwich. There are far too many items on Culver’s menu to list in any one review – so I highly recommend doing some investigative work of your own.
The drive-thru is only an extension of the quality service Culver’s provides. After you order and pay, you are handed a numbered window marker and instructed to park along the side of the drive-thru lane. In a few short minutes, a cheery Culver’s employee will come out and hand you your hot meal that was prepared with the time and attention it deserves.
A must visit and taste the next time you are in the Midwest!
The Butter Burger is King! The Butter Burger is King!

We don't have these in California, but I did notice a couple in Michigan when I was last home. Now, I'll have to drop in and check it out since a great burger is awesome, but an "employee who doesn't me or my order" is unbelievable!

About this topic


 Culver's started in 1984, building on the exceptionally friendly and old-fashioned charm of the Culver family. Founders, Craig Culver, his wife, Lea, and his parents, George and Ruth, set a new standard for quality and freshness in quick-service dining.  The Culvers owned and operated several supper clubs, including the Farm Kitchen Resort in Baraboo, Wisconsin.


Craig was fascinated with the world of quick cuisine, and during college, he worked summers at the Farm Kitchen where he met his wife and future business partner, Lea Weiss. After graduating from UW-Oshkosh in 1973, Craig worked at McDonald's for four years and gained many insights that he was eager to use at Culvers.

Craig, Lea, George and Ruth operated several other restaurants throughout the Sauk Prairie area. But their dream came true on July 18, 1984, when they re-opened a former A&W root beer stand and christened it "Culver's Frozen Custard and ButterBurgers." They selected only the freshest ingredients, prepared each meal exactly to a guest's order and delivered it to their table with a great big smile.

Today, Craig and Lea own six Culver's and oversee more than 370 franchised restaurants in 17 states through Culver Franchising System, Inc.
