Oh Dennis, how quickly we forget. Unless we’re talking about First or Business Class travel here’s a refresher:

We have neither Culver’s nor In-N-Out in Massachusetts. We have Five Guys, which I am perfectly fine with. There are apparently some Shake Shacks in the vicinity, but I’ve not tried them. I would like to try Culver’s. In-N-Out holds no appeal for me, if they are still putting bible verses on the wraps and cups (as Read more

Freddy’s is fantastic. Smashed burgers, super-thin and crispy fries, all their shakes and desserts are custard-based. They’re basically Steak ‘n Shake with a leaner menu.

Goddamn. Raised in MN, schooled/adult life in IA, now living in Calgary, AB. There are some solid local joints here, but damn do I miss a good burger from Culver’s. Always a must stop when going back to see family/friends. The biggest chain here? A&W’s, oddly enough. and their stuff is ok. bonus is that (almost) all Read more

How does anyone in Wisconsin make it to adulthood without both diabetes and a quadruple bypass? You people and your fucking cheese curds.

I remember when a Culvers opened near my house about 10 years ago. I thought it was a laundromat or something. Their signage and general design is horrible. Still haven’t been to this day.

Lordy yes the Kopps locations could be a pain in the ass, but they’re still like a magnet when I’m in the vicinity. A bit like Gillies in ‘Tosa, it’s part of the fabric of MKE.

Yes. Whataburger FTW. Also, breakfast! HBCB on a jalapeño biscuit? Hell, yeah!

Culvers’ is okay, don’t get me wrong, but it ain’t Whataburger. Their concretes are better than the burgers...

I went to Whataburger a few times when I lived in Texas, and every time it was really bland.

Our first local one is fairly new as well, going in it’s not a big ordeal, but the drive through is complete fucking shit show, I go to them all the time when back up north so know the drive through here is not normal.

Best custard was Storheim’s in Green Bay, there is supposedly one in Escanaba but probably full of Yoopers. And for butter burgers I have to hit Krolls, they are so damn buttery and good. Every trip back up there is probably several years off the lifespan of my cardiovascular system as have to hit the local stuff in Read more

Culver’s is the best! Not available in New Mexico yet unfortunately. But I’ll put Blake’s Lotaburger up against In ‘n Out any day...can’t say I’d put them in the same category as Culver’s though, pretty much the only chain I’ve found that’s close is Freddy’s.

Mr Culver was the guest speaker at my college graduation, he seemed like a good dude.

I have a weird fondness for Culver’s. Until this month there wasn’t even one near me but my husband and I travel a decent distance for my kids neurologist. The days usually stink because of the travel but we always stop at Culver’s after the appointment. We will get ice cream and cheese curds. Read more

Shake Shack is awful. They sell alcohol so you'll be too drunk to notice the cafeteria fries and mediocre burgers. Bleh.

I know that Culver’s makes their ice cream from ingredients, and I’d expect that the same goes for other items on the menu.

Just to add even more on to your post, Culvers has their own brand of root beer which is amazing in both the sugar and diet varieties.
