When you're looking for a fast-food burger, there are few options better than cruising through Culver's.

In Rockford, they're just as if not more popular, than Forest City staple Beefaroo, and I know how much people love Beefaroo.

Not sure if it's the food, service, or a combo of both, I don't think I've ever had a bad time grabbing food from Culver's.

That might be why the food is so beloved. Culver's isn't alone though when it comes to customer service. You'll hear legendary stories of customer service from places like Chick-Fil-A, about how their employees go the extra mile.

The staff at Culver's always seems to do the same, albeit with much less pub.

So maybe it's the employees, but then again, the glorious Butterburgers might have something to do with it too.

After all, we'll deal with poor customer service at certain fast-food restaurants because we know the food is quick and probably pretty cheap.

Back to the Butterburgers at Culver's. Even if the service was poor, which it's not, I'd still stan for a Butterburger, even after I found out a surprising truth earlier this week.


The catchy name "Butterburger" draws in imagery of a savory burger with a pat of butter rolling off of it like some snazzy steak at a high end joint. Yeah, that's not what it is at all. The butterburger name comes from a dollop of butter on the crown of the bun, to give it toasty, buttery flavor.

Wait, what? A Butterburger from Culver's isn't made with butter? I kind of thought that's why they were called Butterburgers? I guess a Butterbunburger doesn't quite roll off the tongue.
