If you’re from Wisconsin, you’ve probably got a fair share of nostalgia for Culver’s restaurants. You may have hung out there as a teenager. I know a married couple who had their first date at the restaurant. But whether or not you grew up in the Cheese state or not there’s plenty to appreciate with this burger chain.
Aside from burgers, Culver’s also has amazing offers like chicken meals and sides. And unlike McDonald’s which always seems to have a broken ice cream machine, Culver’s offers ice cream available in one, two, or three scopes. I also suggest trying their trademark Concrete Mixer that’s a blended custard with fruit, candy, cookies and nuts. It’s sort of like a Blizzard at DairyQueen, but thicker. No matter what you like to order at Culver’s, here’s the full menu with up-to-date prices in 2023.

Pepper Grinder Pub Burger
This Culver’s cult classic features two patties made of fresh, never frozen Midwest-raised beef, Swiss and Cheddar cheese, two slices of bacon, dill pickles, and four-pepper mayo on an artisan pub bun.
Fresh Fried Chicken Value Basket
The Culver’s value basket offered crispy fried chicken parts including wings, thighs, legs, and breasts. The whole package! Sadly not all stores offer this anymore and you will probably get a basket of chicken strips only.

Oreo Frozen Custard Sandwich
Culver’s Oreo Frozen Custard Sandwich is handmade and features Oreo cookie pieces and streams of chocolate syrup.
Strawberry Fields Salad
The concept for this fruit filled salad was strong. It was made up of a fresh bed of mixed lettuce, deliciously sliced fresh strawberries, roasted salted pecans, blue cheese crumbles, grape tomatoes, chopped green onions, and topped with juicy grilled chicken. It sounds good. Why didn’t anyone order it? Perhaps, most customers think about burgers and ice cream when they think Culver’s. Not salads.
Cheesy Chicken Tortilla
A hearty soup made up of white chicken strips, American cheese, crushed tomatoes in puree, and onions. It was a comfort food that broke the hearts it served when it left Culver’s menu. Considering Culver’s serves up made in Wisconsin favorites, it’s a surprise these item didn’t pan out.

“The Original” ButterBurger
A subtle ingredient like butter smothered on the most unexpected place like the top of the burger buns is what makes gives the ButteBurger its name. Culver’s offers to have it in single, double, and triple patties. This is another classic you can’t go wrong with as a burger lover.
Is there a secret menu at Culver’s?
No, unfortunately, there is no official secret menu released from Culver’s. But you can mix and match any of their menu offerings to create a customized combo. At least it’s something.
Is Culver’s Better than McDonald’s?
Taste is a matter of personal opinion. But I think you’d be hard pressed to find someone who says McDonald’s offers a superior burger compared to Culver’s. Culver’s provides better quality meats made with a combination of sirloin, chuck, and plate. The burgers are also thicker and the serving sizes are larger than the competitor.
Of course, I bet you could make a better burger than McDonald’s too. But can you create a better business than the Golden Arches? I doubt it. McDonald’s is an extremely fast and efficient food making machine. The chain has the ability to serve a high-volume of customers through double drive-thru lanes, detailed processes and simple food that even high schoolers are able to execute. McDonald’s also provides a level of consistency that you won’t be able to get anywhere else. No matter where you travel in the United States, you can find a McDonald’s that tastes exactly like you expect.
Are there any Culver’s menu items for specialty diets?
Culver’s does not have any menu catering to special diets. However, you may customize an order to use different bread instead if you are looking for healthier options. You can opt for rye, sourdough, butter buns, and regular buns. The choice is yours.

Who is the target audience of Culver’s menu?
Culver’s caters to families with their value basket menus and the youth with their salads menu. The majority of their customer base are elders and the upper middle class. This means, their menu satisfies big groups and those who love the subtle flavors incorporated throughout most of their dishes. I’d say the menu appeals to anyone in the Midwest that enjoys slightly elevated fast food.
Founded in Wisconsin, Culver’s aimed to be a high-value competitor against local burger joints. They offer customizable burgers, superb salads, and sides. They are most famous for their ButterBurgers which is your typical burger with a twist— butter on top of the buns.
Of course you can find the restaurant chain operating beyond the borders of Wisconsin with more than 878 units. You can now find Culver’s locations operating in states like Illinois, Texas, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and Idaho.
