So I am in Indiana this week for the ASS Smallbore Championships... Elkhart/Bristol area.
There was a Culvers nearby so I grabbed some takeout tonight.
Double Cheese Butter Burger with mustard, ketchup, onion and lettuce.
Side of Crinkle cut fries.
Fries: Not bad. Better than McDonald's but not as good as Wendy's and no where nearly as good as Five Guys.
Burger: Excellent. The smashburger style is unique and seals in the flavor nicely. I used to work at a GD Ritzie's in Columbus in the 80's and they had a similar style burger. It comes very close to the overall flavor of a five guys. I would rate the Culvers even or slightly below the Five Guys standard IMO.
Final overall score is 5/7... would eat again.
