Three reasons to love Culver’s

Tabitha N. Tudor, Editor-in-Chief

Every January, for 15 years, I traveled to Indiana to visit my great grandmother and celebrate her birthday. It had become an unofficial tradition to eat at the fast-food restaurant Culver’s down the street each time we visited.

Fresh falling snow coats the signature blue roof in a layer of white, while the blinking neon open sign signals you to turn into the parking lot. Each memory is full of warmth and comfort, from eating a signature ButterBurger, to dipping crinkle-cut fries into fresh frozen custard while gusts of winter winds whisper along the frosty windows.

I love Culver’s for its variety, convenience and philanthropy.

A midwestern classic that originated in Wisconsin, Culver’s is the perfect fast-food restaurant that makes you feel at home. They have a variety of comfort food classics such as burgers, chicken tenders, fries, cheese curds, onion rings and even seafood. There is something for everyone, including soups and fresh salads.

If you are in the mood for something cold, their fresh frozen custard hits the spot every time. You always start with a chocolate or vanilla base and customize the flavor profile with a vast selection of toppings that get incorporated with the fresh custard. The custard is consistently soft, smooth, creamy and fresh.

Sometimes you may not have the availability to dine-in in person, but with a drive-thru, curbside pickup, and an option to order ahead with the Culver’s app, you will be able to save time while still enjoying a delicious meal.

Both Culver’s locations in Flower Mound and Lewisville are open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. So, you can enjoy anything on the menu for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a snack break. This restaurant provides convenience with ease. If you have any questions, the customer service is held to the same high standard as their food.

Since 2013, Culver’s has cultivated the Thank You Farmers Project, which supports agricultural education programs that advocate smart farming practices to ensure Americans have quality food to serve the growing population, according to Culver’s website.

In 2020, as farmers and food banks struggled due to the global pandemic, Culver’s created a fundraiser, Concretes for a Cause, that got customers involved by simply donating one dollar for every concrete mixer ordered, to local food banks and Feeding America.

According to Culver’s website, Culver’s has donated over $4 million to various agricultural education initiatives, including National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the National FFA Organization. When you choose to eat at Culver’s you are supporting more than just a fast-food restaurant.

Culver’s is best known for their signature ButterBurgers and fresh frozen custard. Culver’s, a regular cornucopia of comfort food, enables you to try a different item on the menu for each future visit.

Each bite and crafted scoop fills you with joy and comfort. Food has the power to trigger positive memories, and Culver’s has always provided me with a positive experience.
