If it is along your travel route, you will enjoy it. Prices are not bad, better burgers than the mega chains. If it is not along your travel route, you will enjoy it a few times and forget it is in your town.

solid across the board, deluxe double (bacon if you choose) basket w/ everything, cheese curds if you don't like crinkle cut fries (I happen to like their fries, not 5 guys quality but decent when they are crispy vs soft).

Just picked up my 15 year old son from a rehearsal... he says he's hungry.  Culver's it is!  You won't forget about it.

 

I don't know... it might be because it is Wisconsin, but Culver's has more of a hometown feel to it than the other chains.  The burgers are great.  The other sandwiches are good too.  I'm partial to the pork tenderloin with lettuce, tomato and mustard.  

 

Get yourself a single scoop Caramel Cashew Delight your first outing. Their custard is really good.  You won't be disappointed.

I am too.  but it only scratches an itch, its not a truly good tenderloin sammich.  for a fast food version tho it is indeed palatable and I will have it as often as I have the burgers

I tend to agree with this. If I don't see it, I don't think about it. Other burgers are as good/better. Other frozen custard is as good/better. I usually enjoy it when I do go there.

I really like Culver's.   Occasionally they have a walleye sandwich that is good.

 

i'm a big fan of their burgers.  Nothing special, but always the same and good.

Freddy’s good? Not one local, but went to the Culver’s in Glenwood Springs once to see what the hubbub was about. Was pretty good.

I've recently discovered Freddy's and even though I don't eat many burgers anymore it's my go-to for fast food.

Sadly, the thin fries don't survive the trip home so it's eat inside with the Great Unwashed or in the truck in the parking lot.

Love the spicy fry sauce!

Freddy's is another good burger, mediocre fries place in my opinion. I know a few people here like the fries.

The thing about Culver's is that it's like a diner that got franchised.  You could eat there every day for two weeks without having a burger a second time.  The variety might even outstrip places like Appleby's.  They have fried fish, tenderloin sandwiches, pulled pork, pot roast, fried chicken, chili, soups, chicken strips and sandwiches, Reubens, plus a dozen burger variations.  Plus fries, curds, onion rings, or jalapeno poppers for sandwich wingman and mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, rolls for plated "dinners."  And then whole custard operation more elaborate than Dairy Queen.  I don't know how they keep a menu that large profitable, actually.

 

But if you've only ever had the burgers, I suggest you try a pot roast sandwich next time.  It's braised beef with a texture like pulled pork but not barbecued.  And the fried chicken is really great, as well.  It tastes like somebody made it in their home kitchen rather than the factory-produced thing that KFC etc can seem like.

We got both here in recent years. Freddy’s is pretty much better in every way.

Culver’s isn’t bad. Their curds are okay, but theirs are like a bread crumb coating, and I FAR prefer battered versions.

Burgers are good. Better than other fast food chains

However I rarely eat fast food. I tried it once though. Was good from what I remember.

Everything deep fried at ours is a greasy soggy mess.  It took n=3 to convince me to never go back.

I've found that, most of the time, the more on the menu the worse everything is...like it's hard to do 50 things consistently right.

I'd give Culvers props if everything on the menu was good.

My favorite places have a smaller menu and concentrate on getting those items right.
