Curderburger returns to Culver’s for a short time

Take a look at the apple pie from Omaha baker Brittany Gubbels.

If you missed the Curderburger last year, you have another chance to harden your arteries this month.

The burger is on the menu at area Culver’s restaurants until Oct. 31, or until supplies last. The fast-food chain says “it’s as Wisconsin as it gets,” with a deluxe butterburger with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onion and condiments topped with a breaded and deep-fried crown of cheese.

The Culver’s website says it has a surprisingly low 790 calories, although it also has 42 grams of fat and 67 grams of carbs.

The Curderburger was first presented as a joke, but became a thing after Culver’s was deluged with requests. It appears to be popular this time around as well — long lines are reported at area drive-thrus.

There are two Culver’s locations in Omaha, and one each in La Vista, Bellevue and Council Bluffs. For directions, visit
