    Less than a mile away.  My daughter and I tried it one time.  The food was good, but I thought way overpriced. I think it was over $20 for 2, and we didn't buy anything fancy, just burgers, fries and drinks.   Since they are a 'good' business, we will probably go back sometime, but there are better places around here.  There is a 'Culvers' nearby too, which we all really prefer (especially since their menu is much more diverse, and they have the BEST fries anywhere, perhaps better than McD's).  So PLEASE tell me that Culver's is not a winger place.  Please.

      Five Guys is still at the cheaper end for a burger but not necessarily super cheap. I can see hitting $20 for burger, fries and drink for 2. But the quality is better than say Mcdonalds, Burger King or Wendy's. I think for comparable quality it is well priced.

      Bareburger, which uses organically grown meat, supposedly, tends to be WAY more expensive. I tried them wanting to like them, but the local place down the street, Bonnie's Grill, has burgers just as good (though less variety) for cheaper AND they come with the best fries I have ever had. So Bareburger is now mostly off my list.

      Umami Burger is tops for burgers. Amazing creations, though expensive. Far better than Bareburger and comparably priced (I think???).

      DOn't have a clue about Culver's....not a place I have encountered. But I challenge you to try the fries at Bonnie's and still say Culver's is the best...though you have to come to Brooklyn, NY for that!

      My spouse ordered a "concrete"- a thick shake with mixed in candies.  

      He bit down on something- not sure what- and had horrific tooth pain.  Two days later he was getting a root canal and major dental work.  He's a guy who takes good care of his teeth, so it was awful.

      Culvers failed to respond to contact in any form.  All I asked is that they place a warning on the menu so that a $3.00 treat doesn't turn into a $3000 nightmare.   A lot of people can't afford that.

      •  The candy probably revealed the problem (0+ / 0-)

        But likely didn't cause it.   If the infection had gone on longer before bing discovered, he might have lost the tooth.
