Comments
I finally made it to a Culver's while on vacation in Florida. I couldn't wait to try their ButterBurger, but before I go any further, I must tell you that this review is going to be open-ended because I was not able to give this burger a proper review.  

I was pressed for time, so rather than eat-in I ordered from Culver's drive-thru (first mistake), and then got lost for a few miles on my way back to my hotel room which made for a cold burger experience. With that said, let me say that judging from the now cold sandwich, the off-the-grill version of this burger has great potential. From the fat content to the mild butter flavor to the fresh toppings, I will try to get back to Culver's as soon as possible for a proper feeding and review. 

My one pet-peeve was the placement of the "toppings" which were on the bottom of the burger (which I hate) and unfortunately, it's something we are seeing more and more these days. I want my lettuce, pickles and onions on the top, where they belong. 

A point to note was that the voice over the loudspeaker at the drive-thru told me that each burger is handcrafted, made fresh to order – don't know about you, but I love hearing that. 

The Sourdough Melt also had huge potential, but I need to hit this place again before I can give it a proper review rating.
