If we aren’t informed with Culver’s, it tends to be famous for a solidified custard – and ButterBurgers, that are a bit of a opposite spin on a informed All-American sandwich.

One reason we wanted to stop by was that we recently review that a Edwardsville Culver’s owners Kelly Cobb partnered with a superintendent of a Gateway Conference of a Free Methodist Church of Southern Illinois and Missouri, Ben Tolly, and a New Life Free Methodist Church in Jerseyville to feed 50 National Guard troops, initial responders and volunteers who helped with a inundate efforts along a Illinois River. we suspicion that was really comendable, along with all a other grill owners around a Riverbend who have assisted with a inundate service by feeding a workers – a really critical couple in a sequence of efforts it took for everybody to get by a perplexing time for a community.


I wish a workers get a possibility to try a custard – if not that day, afterwards someday soon, since it positively done me a Culver’s fan – genuine quick. It became a plate we couldn’t conflict when we saw that a season of a day was “Turtle Dove.”

Made with tawny vanilla fresh-frozen custard swirled with ribbons of out-of-date pickled caramel (yummy), marshmallow creme (yay), toasted pecan pieces (my favorite nut) and chopped Hershey’s divert chocolate bars (couldn’t spin those away), it was really too tantalizing to contend no. As we gobbled adult my half (I separate it with my husband), we had to check a menu again to make certain it pronounced solidified custard, since it tasted like tawny vanilla ice cream to me. Needless to say, it was delicious.

The grill has a opposite specialty season each day. One day it competence be “Georgia Peach,” another competence offer “Rocky Road,” “Butter Brickle,” Bonfire S’mores,” or maybe, “Blackberry Cobbler.” we consider it would be easy to turn accustomed to going each day to try all a varieties, yet we will try not to do that. we will be interlude by intermittently though.

As we was munching away, we review a small some-more about it, and evidentally, Culver’s solidified custard contains reduction air, so it’s creamier and some-more decadent than typical ice cream – and this is engaging – since it’s served during a small warmer heat than ice cream, we indeed knowledge a season longer. Hmmm … who knew?


In further to a season of a day, vanilla and chocolate flavors of custard are always available, and we can emanate your possess sundae or petrify mixer from a vast accumulation of toppings and “mix-ins,” or try a cone, shake or float. You can even buy a pint of custard to take home for later.

Just since we started with dessert doesn’t meant everybody has to. The ButterBurgers are really a thing, and if we start with one of them, and select from all a side dishes or other sandwiches, we might have to take a custard to go.

ButterBurgers are ButterBurgers not since they’ve been cooked, marinated, dunked, boiled or drizzled with butter, yet since Culver’s easily butters a climax of a bun. But they are also done in a special way. As a story goes, co-founder Craig Culver done a initial ButterBurger from a special mix of 3 cuts of beef that has never been frozen, afterwards pulpy and parched it in a approach that thatch in a beef’s dampness for full flavor, giving it a steak-like ambience and a crispy texture. There are acutally 650 Culver’s restaurants in 24 states, so we know they’re doing something right.

Hearty soups, healthy salads, home-style meals, like beef pot fry cooking or sandwich, pig tenderloin sandwich, chopped beef or a grilled reuben warp come with choice of sides, like immature beans, a cooking hurl or crushed potatoes and gravy. Seafood sandwiches and dinners, duck sandwiches, duck tenders, we name it, a menu is extensive, and a atmosphere is casual.
