Default McDonalds vs Culvers

The other day, out-of-the-blue, DH, said "I'm in the mood for a Big Mac". Being the loving and devoted wife that I am I said: "Ewww, how can you eat that dogfood?" Sheepishly he said, well I've been seeing their commercials and since it's been about 10 or 15 years since we've been there ...

So I went out and got 2 Big Macs and a Fish sandwich and Fries. I then doubled back to Culver's and got a double cheeseburger with everything and a Fish sandwich and Fries.

We did a taste testing.

The Big Mac has the bottom bun, a burger, another piece of bread, then another burger and the rest of the stuff, followed by the top of the bun. The Culver's had only 2 pieces of bread (an improvement imho) yet it stood tall and proud next to the Big Mac.

We both tasted -- the Culver's burger was head and shoulders better, in our opinion.

The Fish Sandwich from McD's didn't stand a chance against the Culver's. Culvers beat it out by a mile both in looks and in taste.

As far as the fries, I think McD's was somewhat better -- but only somewhat. Of course it's not a fair comparison since the fries at McD's are similar to shoestring style while the Culver's are crinkle cut. Still I think McD's was at least 10% tastier.

I am NOT a fan of fast food but at least I can enjoy Culver's without feeling nauseous afterwards which had always happened to me after eating McDonald's. Plus Culver's has Cement Mixers (or is it Concrete Mixers?) -- regardless it's ice cream heaven - damn you Nucky for turning me on to this.

Now that he got it out of his system, DH said he'll be happy to retry McD's in another 10 or 15 years. LOL

Yes, got both orders at the drive through and brought them home.

You should have got the Egg McMuffin. That is the best thing sold at McDonald's. If you want a burger, go to Burger King and get a Whooper. If you want chili, go to Wendy's. If you want tacos, go to Taco Bell. You just need to know how to shop. I don't like anything at Culver's.

It’s been my experience that burgers and fries wherever they come,
from tend lose a bit of pizzazz while traveling!
Had a burger and fries in Culver’s last week, and I think their both better than Mc D’s!

Why even think of eating this fast food junk--don't get it-it isn't rocket science to cook better food @ home--if you're looking for bargain basement food go to Sam's -they're food can't be beat

Burger King on Wedgewood is unkempt, and whopper is poor quality,
I agree Wendy’s chili is very good, but I would go to the Mexican restaurant in Colony plaza for a decent taco!
Different strokes, for different folks!

Taste is definitely subjective. I find egg McMuffins chewy and dry, I don’t like anything at Burger King and I don’t care for the maintenance at Wendy’s and Taco Bell. I really like Culver’s service, cleanliness and food.

But it’s a good thing we all don’t like the same thing or we’d all be sitting in each other’s lap for lunch
