When you come to Culver’s in Panama City Beach, Florida, you can always expect a quick and easy dining experience featuring all your favorite treats. Upon walking in, you will spot their huge menu full of burgers, sundaes, and everything in between. As they are a chain, their menu and quality remain static visit after visit, providing the perfect dining experience every time.

Although they are best known for their frozen treats, their burgers are hard to beat. Made with fresh ground beef seared on the grill, each burger promises to put a smile on your face from the first bite. At Culver’s, you can create your own burger by selecting the number of patties, type of cheese, and toppings you want. If you make it a value basket, they will throw in a medium drink and a single classic side, such as mashed potatoes and gravy or French fries.

Beyond burgers, they have fish dinners, pot roast sandwiches, and other fan favorites. Their salads are nothing to scoff at either, boasting fresh greens and grilled chicken made to perfection. The real magic is in their sundaes and shakes, however, which come in a wide range of exceptional flavors. You can order your sundaes in a dish, waffle cone, or cake cone, then pile on all the toppings you desire, including candies, hot fudge, and fruits of all kinds.

Everyone’s favorite menu items at Culver’s include:

Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich
When you want to go beyond their signature burger options, give their Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich a try. This sandwich starts with chicken breast covered in zesty breading and deep-fried until juicy and golden brown. Then, it is placed on a bed of lettuce and tomato set on a fresh-baked bun. If you want a side and drink to go with your sandwich, upgrade to a value basket when you order.

Wisconsin Cheese Curds
Made sizzling hot, the Wisconsin Cheese Curds promise a flavor explosion with every bite. They are chockfull of oozy cheese that is breaded and deep-fried to a golden brown. You can order them on their own or upgrade your value basket to a signature side to add them to your meal.

North Atlantic Cod Dinner
The North Atlantic Cod Dinner gives you a choice of two or three pieces of flakey fish, breaded and deep-fried to a rich, golden brown. Then, your fried cod is paired with two sides of your choice, including crinkle-cut fries, coleslaw, or mashed potatoes. A dinner roll comes alongside as well, perfectly completing this decadent meal.

Concrete Mixer
When you order the concrete mixer, you can have a drink that is one part shake, one part sundae. This frozen treat starts with your custard ice cream of choice, which could be the surprise flavor of the day if you wish. Then, they add your two selected mix-ins, or more for an extra charge, and shake it all up. Mix-in toppings include peanut butter, marshmallow crème, peaches, blackberries, almonds, and much more.  

When you are just hankering for a tasty snack, this restaurant will never let you down. You will never regret coming in just for their signature sides, though it might be difficult to skip dessert on your way out. On their signature menu, they manage to go beyond cheese curds with chili-based concoctions galore, including chili cheddar fries.
