Allen gave Culver's an A; JM, Liz, and Nichole gave Culver's an A-; David gave Culver's a B+ (see our grading rubric).
So far, Culver's has never let us down when we're willing to indulge in some seriously American food. Allen summed it up for most of us: "I'll be back for more butter-fried goodness sooner rather than later." Liz described her sandwich as "tasty, as usual," and JM's brat was excellent though it fell apart.
You knew about the Butterburgers®, but did you know Culver's supports biodiesel research? They also throw a mean staff party - in the interest of full disclosure, we used to room with a Culver's manager and dearly miss the
pintsperks that entailed. Hence, we're a bit partial.
Nichole is disappointed that Culver's has started making their lemon cooler desserts with Splenda instead of sugar, but the move is understandable from a marketing perspective. It has, however, forced her onto the harder stuff. Their chocolate custard has no equal.
