We’ve received many reviews from fans all over the country, but never has a guest wrote a book (with pictures) about our food. That all changed when Wisconsin first grader Hanalei decided to let the world know about all the reasons why Culver’s is the best restaurant for a class assignment on opinion writing.

“Do you like burgers? Then you will love Culver’s!!!!!” and “Rating 5 stars!” and “Do you like burgers? Then you will love Culver’s!!!!” and “If you like ice cream then Culver’s is what you will love.”

Her love for ButterBurgers, Fresh Frozen Custard and Cheese Curds started young when in 2010 her mother, Nicole, took baby Hanalei to her very first visit at the Culver’s of Madison, WI – Todd Drive.

Baby Hanalei sleeps next to an order of Cheese Curds in a carrier at Culver’s and a Christmas tree in the background.

As Hanalei got older, and visited Culver’s more, she discovered that her favorite menu item is the classic ButterBurger and if she were to create her own Flavor of the Day, it would be Vanilla Fresh Frozen Custard with chocolate chips and candy cane pieces. She would call it “Candy Crumble.”

“Do you like cones to put your ice cream in? Then you will love!!! Culver’s! I give this restaurant 5 stars” and “Conclusion, I think Culver’s is the best because they have great burgers. Now go to Culver’s. No time to waste!”

Following the success of her first book, Hanalei is already thinking about a second! For the sequel, she said she would write about all the different flavors of Fresh Frozen Custard that you can choose from.

Hanalei gave Culver’s a five-star rating and thinks “Culver’s is the best because they have great burgers,” and encourages us to go to Culver’s because there’s “no time to waste!” So, what are you waiting for?
