One Friday night, my husband and I decided to head out for a quick, relaxing dinner. Around 6 p.m. we drove to Culver’s and arrived to a packed restaurant full of families, kids and couples. Each table was topped with delicious-looking burgers, fries and warm sandwiches.
As we walked up to the counter, I perused the menu posted above full of sandwiches, salads and the famous frozen custard. I’ll admit I had a hard time choosing. I finally decided on the Wisconsin Swiss Melt. Unlike their infamous Butter Burgers that are made on a big, buttery bun, this sandwich is on toasted rye bread. It sounded like something a little different, yet right up my alley.
I chose fries as my side, and went off to fill my soda while my husband took our number to a table so our food could be brought right to us. After just a short wait, our food arrived.
It smelled so good that we both dug in right away. I started with my fries since my sandwich was searing hot. The fries were large, salty and hearty. Once I started on my sandwich, I was immediately happy with my choice. The beef was juicy, delicious and layered with hot, melted Swiss cheese. The bread had been buttered to perfection and was the perfect topper.
As we finished our meals, my husband decided to grab a peanut butter and hot fudge concrete mixer.
“I’m completely stuffed and still can’t stop eating this,” he said. “This is so good.”
Full as well, I passed on the concrete mixer but can’t deny that it looked thick, creamy and full of flavor. Any ice cream lover would be hard pressed to pass on the many concoctions on the menu.
Too stuffed to move, we sat and chatted about our great meals and took in the bustling atmosphere around us. As we got up to leave, we passed some children devouring their very own delicious concrete mixers.
Those looking for a quick, quality meal with family or friends should head to Culver’s. This large, clean restaurant is great for kids and adults alike.Culver’s 8660 Plum Drive (515) 270-8699 Hours: 10:30 a.m. – 10 p.m.
