“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We do not have Culver's near where we lived but we decided to try it based on the reviews. I'm glad we did. The place was packed. Because of how many people were there we had to wait while they refilled the ice in the soda machine, ketchup, sweet tea, etc. but they worked hard to get everything done. The food was excellent. You should splurge on the ice cream. It was great.

“What a wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Imagine a fast food restaurant that is clean, bright, with friendly and helpful staff and good food. Doesn't exist, right? Wrong! Culver's, Effingham, Illinois, was all that. I'm not sure I've ever been to a Culver's but I'll look for them from now on. Nice down-home touches are the reserved parking space for veterans, and a red, white and blue cross in the drink section that said "God Bless America." I don't care about the religious aspects, but it was a nice touch to see a motif that hadn't become generic for fear of offending someone.

“Delicious cod!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Visiting on Friday, it was cod sandwiches for us. The fish was hot upon arrival. A great sandwich with just the right amount of tartar sauce - not swimming in it and NOT dry!

“An ADVENTURE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

SURPRISED, we parked & absorbed the atmosphere of this place. Welcomed by a special parking spot, at the entrance, for VETERANS, with a statue of an eagle with a flag. Being the 70 anniversary of D-Day, we were moved by CULVERS gesture. Entering, we were still in "awe" as the wood carved animals & benches WELCOMED us in a special way. The gentleman nearby could tell that I was anxious to learn about the decor, & "filled us in." A local artist carved the attractions. OH YES, the food was great, as we've learned to expect, & the gentleman who befriended us, telling the origin of the artistic figures, was the owner. YOU GOTTA SEE TO BELIEVE !!!

“Great food, clean store”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We love Culver's and stop as often as we can. This was our first trip to the one in Effingham and it did not disappoint. We ate on Memorial Day so the place was busy but there was enough staff on hand to keep everything clean and all the customers happy. I even had the pleasure of having the owner take my order. The food came out quickly and, as always, was very good. Would definitely visit this store again.
