As Craig Culver will tell you, Culver’s ButterBurgers are made the way they are today because that’s how his mom always did it. They use fresh, never frozen, 100 percent Midwest beef, seared to perfection, cooked to order and served on a lightly toasted bun. Sure it takes a bit longer doing it that way, but boy is it worth the wait. Its reputation for deliciousness doesn’t stop there. Try their fresh frozen custard. Open 7 days a week. 5775 Airport Pulling Rd. 239-596-4640. culvers.com/restaurants/naples-flairport pulling
