Things We Need In NYC: Culver’s And Its Delicious Butterburgers
I have been blogging from my hometown of Mitchell, South Dakota this week, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sample Culver’s, one of the Midwestern chains represented here. It’s based in Wisconsin and its specialties are butterburgers and frozen custard. As I will never pass up the opportunity to eat new, gross lunches I went to check it out.
I brought my brother along as my co-lunch’er on a brisk day when frozen custard shouldn’t have sounded good, but did. As I am every time I return to my home state, I am alarmed by how friendly everyone is, and Culver’s was no exception. I stood perusing the menu, trying to decide on what variety of comfort food to try and no one gave me the stink eye for taking so long. They sell things like fried chicken and prime rib sandwiches, but I was there for the butterburger. Because who doesn’t like a slab of beef slathered in butter?
I went for the double with some crinkle fries on the side. I got pretty excited when I saw the burger come out as it looked really promising for a fast food burger. I also liked the touch of putting a pickle slice on top.When I picked the burger up, there was a good sign of things to come as a puddle of burger grease had formed that is not usually found in the fast food universe. The patties were thin, but definitely not dried out. Butter really does make everything better!
My brother got a chicken sandwich and he reported it was really good, as was the shake he got on the side. Clearly they are big into the dairy products at this chain.
Speaking of that, I couldn’t leave without having some custard, even though my stomach was telling me to leave it alone. I went for the chocolate variety and it was well worth the brain freeze. Basically Culver’s is like the Midwestern version of Shake Shack without the lines.
This might be on my permanent rotation when I head to the central part of the country and need some top-notch fast food.
