Review: Culver’s CurderBurger


Culvers CurderBurger

So recently, I heard that Culver’s has brought back one of their most popular items ever being the CurderBurger for everyone to try.

Initially, I was very surprised as last I heard of it was that it was an April Fools Joke gone real as they actually released it for a short period awhile back. But never in my mind did I think they will actually bring it back and put it on the menu for people to enjoy.

And sure enough, they just did.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love Cheese Curds, and the CurderBurger is basically a regular ButterBurger but with a giant Cheese Curd Patty on the inside. That sounds absolutely insane yet delicious as the same time.

So you know I have to go try it!

Lets go buy this amazing creation and see how it tastes~

Buying The Food

Now buying the CurderBurger was actually pretty easy.

Immediately after I have arrived at Culvers, I saw that they were advertising the CurderBurger everyone around their store. It was on the windows, on the gigantic signs and more.

So the choice was easy, as I went into the drive-thru lane and asked for a CurderBurger meal.

So essentially, I got a CurderBurger, small fries and also a regular size drink.

The price was pretty decent as it came out to around $12.40, which was not bad in my opinion as many other fast food establishments will actually charge a lot more nowadays for a meal.

Anyways, once I placed the order, it took about 5 minutes after paying to get my food.

And once I got it, I was excited!

Never have I seen a Cheese Curd Patty inside of a burger so this was going to be extremely interesting.

But I know what you’re here for, so let’s get on with the review.

What Does It Look Like

I took the item out the box and I saw that the CurderBurger actually came in a paper box that didn’t really close all the way.

I popped open the lid and then I saw it.

The CurderBurger was actually pretty big. Like this thing was really tall, probably one of the tallest burgers I have seen for fast food.

But the thing that most intrigued me was the Cheese Curd Patty, as you can see, it was super large, almost bigger than the meat patty and was thick too. I would guess it was probably around 1 centimeter thick, which was pretty big.

As for the rest of the burger, it was your fairly average ButterBurger ingredients. It had lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, beef patty, and your usual sauces, so nothing really special here.

But that doesn’t matter as we’re here for one thing and one thing only, and that is the Cheese Curd Patty.

So without waiting any longer, lets get in on this review.

What Did It Taste Like

Picking up the CurderBurger, I immediately took a bite.

When I tell you, that Cheese Curd Patty literally exploded in my mouth with cheese was an understatement.

The Cheese Curd Patty had so much cheese on the inside, it was a glorious feeling.

It was everything you ever wanted in a Cheese Curd, but amplified so much more giving you an intense cheesy taste and texture that you’ll love. The outside patty itself was nicely crispy while having a thin batter, while the Cheese Curd Patty had a decent cheese pull to it with each bite.

Not to mention, after you bite into the patty and hold the burger, you can literally see the cheese on the inside being perfectly melted and slowly oozing out.

As for the rest of the burger, it was really good. After all, Culver’s ButterBurgers are probably one of the best burgers you can find in fast food. With great quality and flavor, everything worked really nicely with each other.

The bun itself was super soft, while the meat patty was juicy and tender, seasoned right, and it also had a crispy edge all around the patty which was great. The lettuce was fresh and crisp, tomatoes were juicy, pickles gave off a slight acidic feel with a bit of sweetness. Top it off with the sauces and more, this was a good quality burger.

The highlight however, was definitely the Cheese Curd Patty.

Even though it was originally created as a joke, this burger actually works.

It’s basically a Cheese Burger on steroids as there is so much heaping cheese inside here, that any cheese lover would fall in love instantly.

And being as affordable as it is, this is one item that will be selling in waves for Culver’s.

How Can It Be Improved

Let’s be honest here.

There is nothing to improve.

What originally started off as a April Fool’s joke, became a reality and an instant hit among the fans. The CurderBurger is what happens when you have a great idea that has been executed perfectly.

It ties together both the joyful experiences of eating a Cheese Curd and also the ButterBurger, and makes it into a flavor explosion.

This is one item everyone around will be talking about for years to come, and they’ll be buying it as long as it is available on the menu.

Hopefully Culver’s decides to make it into a permanent menu item as this is really a good burger to enjoy.

Overall Thoughts

At the end of the day, Culver’s made the right choice.

Whoever was working in management and decided to release the CurderBurger definitely needs a raise as this item will help elevate the company into the next level.

After all, everyone already knows that Culver’s ButterBurgers are one of the best items to have in fast food, and having another item like the CurderBurger added to the menu only proves that they are continuing to be domanent in this food category for years to come.

Overall Rating: 9.2
