I LOVE Butter Burgers!

I LOVE Butter Burgers!
Deals at Culvers! YUM!

Everyone’s gotta feed their family!  One of my favorite Wisconsin discoveries since I moved to Chicago 10 years ago is the Culver’s BUTTER BURGER!  My fellow NU peers from Wisconsin were all obsessed about Butter Burgers and I never understood it until…..I got CULVERIZED!  Now, we’re pretty much obsessed with Culver’s.

Why am I writing this on ‘Fru-Girl’?  Tell me last time you got a delicious, fresh burger for under $4….that’s right – Butter Burgers are FRUGAL!  AWESOME!     Jon and I love Culver’s amazing Butter Burgers and tend to take visiting non-mid-westerners to get the real Culver’s experience.   We have a checklist of things to make our visitors try:

  1. Deep Fried Cheese Curds
  2. Classic Butter Burger

All made with fresh Wisconsin Dairy + Beef!  NOM NOM NOM!   Living in Evanston, sadly (we don’t have one really close) so our Culver’s experiences have to wait until we’re out of town:  we’ve hit up the Culver’s in Antioch, Mt. Prospect, Pleasant Prairie and on the way to Ohio in South Bend.   Why is Culver’s so good??

  1. They use fresh, never frozen beef for their burgers and real Wisconsin Cheese! (not that processed stuff like fast food joints).
  2. They have deals!  (Follow on Facebook + Twitter for giveaways and deals!)
  3. The people are always nice and the restaurant is always clean!
  4. They have their own Root-beer – YUM!
