The Boise area will get a taste of its first ButterBurger today when the Culver’s restaurant franchise makes its Treasure Valley debut.

Culver’s will open at 3494 E. Tecate Lane in Meridian, next to a Les Schwab Tire Center near the intersection of Ustick and Eagle roads.

Culver’s, which opened its first restaurant in 1984 in Wisconsin, offers a variety of dining choices ranging from hand-battered fish and fried chicken to a shaved prime rib sandwich and beef pot roast.

Oh, and Wisconsin cheese curds. Gotta have the breaded cheese curds. Only 1,020 calories in a large, baby!

Culver’s signature combo, however, is its ButterBurger and frozen custard. ButterBurgers are made from Midwest-raised beef and are served on a lightly buttered, toasted bun. Small batches of Culver’s frozen custard, available in a variety of flavors, are made at the restaurant throughout the day. Today’s flavor of the day is butter pecan.

The Meridian Culver’s will be the third Idaho restaurant for the franchise. There’s already a Culver’s in Twin Falls and Idaho Falls.

Hours: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Online: culvers.com.
