    You can get a fish sandwich there anytime, but I think the Walleye season is limited to Lent. OTOH, chicagostyledog frequents Culver's up in Wisconsin's Northwoods where they may serve them more often, or even year round.

    Never tried it, but I've heard from multiple people that the pot roast sandwich is really good.

    I wonder how much of Culver's appeal is from their custard on this survey? That being said I think overall their menu is better than most fast food chains. I think Steak N Shake needs a reboot and ditch the servers. Go the route Culver's and Freddy's have which seems to be far more popular. Portillo's was named number one fast food in the country in another poll.

    They need a makeover as well. The subway tile looked nice and old fashioned when they built the Randhurst store, now it looks dingy. And the last time we were in there the service was so bad it was indistinguishable from getting it dropped off at Culver's, except slower.

    We stopped at the Culver's in Michigan City near I-94 on our way back from Michigan today and our burgers were all prepared "Schoops/region-style" and near flattened with a nice crust on both sides. I don't recall ever experiencing that before at a Culver's but I was not disappointed.

    Culver's My once a year seasonal Walleye fix. Tasty!

    CulversP2.jpg Culver's Walleye

    Bonus theater, mentally unbalanced person in the dining room. 6'4 talking to himself, no big deal, bouncing around the dining room wildly gesturing, yelling, frantic, disconcerting to say the least. Morton Grove police were called, they were incredibly gentle with him. Even offered to buy him lunch, give him a ride, he settled down. Then acted out once again. Not sure what happened, I left as the second act began. I was impressed by the professionalism of the Morton Grove Police Department.

    Culver's Walleye, count me a Fan!

    You know, its weird, I thought the guy ranting and raving might be an LTHer when in the middle of his third pass around the dining room he stopped and asked a Culver's manager about their custards butterfat percentage.

    Culver’s vanilla formula contains 13 percent butterfat, and the chocolate contains 10 percent butterfat.

    Culver's will be opening a new store in Northbrook at the SW corner of Dundee and Sanders by mid-2020.

    My childhood stomping grounds - for years there was a McD's there (an unusual, in-strip-mall space), now a pancake house.

    Northbrook banned drive-thrus since day one but finally have started allowing them (McDonald's on Skokie Blvd, Dunkin', etc.).

    It is but then again I haven’t met a pot roast sandwich I didn’t like.

    Hard to screw up.
