A lovely alternative to regular fast food. We had chicken tenders, sweet potato fries, mushroom and Swiss butterburger and two shakes. All were excellent. Now to sleep it off!!

I'd never been to Culver's so we gave it a try. One of the best fast food places! Food was hot, made to order, and great. Crispy fries and onion rings, yummy burgers and the chicken fingers were especially good. Best of all the shake and malt that we got. Please come to Toledo!

Tried a grilled chicken sandwich that was tough and included some gristle or was undercooked. Sad because Culver's is known for cooking to order and not retrieving from a heating tray. Good deal on beverages with free refills.

Great spot to stop when traveling on the road. Always good food, quick service, and clean bathrooms. This is a lot better than the other fast food chains.

We were traveling across the US and we tried to stop to eat only at Culvers for lunch or dinner. Well this Culvers was further away, but we knew that our order would be correct and fresh. Hot and just made to order. No fuss..and the reward of Fresh custard..well you go the extra mile.

This is a great place for a quick bite. Whether wanting a meal or ice cream the wait time is minimal.

The burgers here are perfect. Soft bun, juicy meat that fills the bun, and made to order to your specifications. Because they are made to order, the cheese is melted and the burger is still warm. Today I also tried the cheese curds and they were yummy. They come with a side of marinara or ranch. I'm not big on... More

Atmosphere was nice. Great location off the highway. Restaurant was very clean, service was awesome, food delicious and order was correct. First time at this chain, and loved it so much we've been been twice.

We really enjoyed our burger's and custard there. It was like a step back in time before fast food became junk. The staff was great as well. Keep up the great work.

Friendly staff, close to the highway, good food with plenty of options...pretty much all you can ask for on the road. I came during the lunch rush on a Monday afternoon and my order was delivered quickly and efficiently. Restaurant was a little dirty but it was right in the middle of the lunch rush so it's somewhat understandable.

Thank stunna54
