I've been a long-term Culver's customer to the exclusion of almost all other fast food. Travel to Ankeny occasionally and on my visit yesterday ordered two butter burger deluxe sandwiches at the drive-through. What a disappointment. They came out very quickly obviously prepared in advance and wrapped tightly enough to crush the buns. Cold meat unmelted cheese. Worst culvers meal... More

My fav is the mushroom and swiss and add the horseradish sauce - comes with small fry and soda for $5. The staff is very friendly and the place is clean.

I hesitate to review this Culvers as it is the only one we have in town. However, after multiple disappointing trips, something should be said. We have had many orders come out wrong, even just ordering a kid's meal. We also stopped one night for the delicious custard, and my chocolate shake was runny. Each of these instances was not...

They have a great variety of desserts, more so than dairy queen, yet I don't think it gets the credit they deserve for it. They always have a... More

I have been here many times. I love the butter burger with fries. The service is fast. You get a cup and fill your own soft drink. There is no wait staff so there is no tipping. There is free parking on all four sides of the building. There are plenty of booths on the edges and some tables with... More

One of the few fast-food restaurants that offer gluten-free buns for their sandwiches. The GF bun tastes good too. We take our grandchildren there and we all find the food good tasting and good quality. We especially like their chicken tenders and burgers. I find the GF buns better at this Culver's than the Des Moines Culvers. (Not sure why... More

My neighbor always raves about Culver's but I thought it was just another soft serve place. It was OK just not fabulous.
