New items at Culver’s
Culver’s restaurants are adding two limited-time items: a Colby Jack pub burger and crinkle-cut sweet potato fries. They will be on the menu through Nov. 11.
The pub burger is a spin on the chain’s signature ButterBurger, and “a nod to the supper club history of Wisconsin,” promotional materials note. Besides cheese, the burger has crispy fried onions, and a “four-pepper mayo with a dash of A.1. Steak Sauce.”
