Culver’s ButterBurger with Cheese

(Double ButterBurger)

Culver's Butterburger with Cheese

(Single ButterBurger)

Looks: I could only find an official picture of the double Butterburger, but even accounting for that difference, the real deal doesn’t quite stack up. The bun isn’t as fluffy, the toppings (under the patty) aren’t as evenly placed, and the meat doesn’t extend beyond the edge of the bread. 3.5 out of 5

Taste: Who cares how it looks? The Culver’s ButterBurger is the single best fast-food hamburger in America. I’ve had McDonald’s, Burger King, Hardee’s, Carl’s Jr., Wendy’s, A&W, In-N-Out, Lion’s Tap, and many others, and none of them top Culver’s. The bread has just the right amount of chewiness, and the cheese melts into the burger, almost infusing its flavor into the beef. Putting the lettuce/tomato/etc. beneath the patty and sealing them in with the cheese prevents them from sliding out while you eat, and each bite of the beef patty makes you see a little bit of heaven. I’m not afraid to say that when the burger was gone, I cried a little bit. 5 out of 5
