My husband had told me that Culver’s was now offering gluten free buns for diners at its restaurants. Last night, we decided to give them a try, and went to the location in Lake Zurich.
Culver’s has a different approach to serving the gluten free burger/sandwich. The bun is served in a clear wrap (cellophane?) that has been warmed, and the burger with toppings is presented in the box. The customer assembles the sandwich so that the opportunities for cross-contamination are kept at a minimum.
I ordered a double Butter Burger, and I’m glad I did. The bun (I believe it’s Udi’s product) is quite large. If you ordered a single, the resulting sandwich would have too much bun. With a double hamburger, there is much more balance to the burger. The bun held up well while I ate. No problems with it falling apart, which has been a problem in some other buns.
I enjoyed the hamburger, and I’m glad that Culver’s is providing GF customers with this option.
