A long time fan of Culvers finally got the chance to meet the King of the Butter Burger on Friday.

Nathan Gerdes, a 10 year old from Rochester, and his family, have been regular Culver’s customers every Friday for the last 7 years.

Wanting to share his appreciation for the restaurant, Nathan decided to write a letter to the restaurant’s Co-founder, Craig Culver.

“I really like their food here and I wanted to see what it was like for him to make it”, Nathan shared.

After asking the co-founder if they could meet, Culver invited Nathan to share a meal in Onalaska. During their shared meal Culver said it means a lot to have supporters like Nathan.

Craig says, “I don’t like to say no, I don’t. I mean when somebody goes out of their way, that loves Culver’s so much, how can I say no to that. I can’t. I just can’t. I’m honored that they did ask as a matter of fact.”

Both Nathan and his family say they learned a lot from Craig Culver and like always, enjoyed their Culver’s lunch.
