Has anyone had/tasted Culvers root beer?
I do not recall if this has been asked recently.
There is a Culvers less than two miles from where live. I'm wondering if their root beer is worth the trip?
Has anyone had their pot roast sandwich?

Their root beer is decent. I get it quite often actually.
The pot roast sandwich is basically just a big pile of pot roast on a bun. Unfortunately, the bottom of the bun was a little soggy when I got it, so I used a fork and just didn't eat the bottom part. I was sorta disappointed, although the pot roast they used was really really good. Maybe someone working there was new... if they hadn't damaged my bun (LOL) it would've been an awesome sandwich.
Their sundaes and shakes are awesome if you're into that sort of thing.

I love their rootbeer but their ruben sandwhiches are even better.

I worked at multiple Culvers stores over the course of a year. Everything on their menu is awesome. Nothing special about the pot roast, though it is juicy and tasty. It comes vacuum-sealed and pre-cooked, and is just reheated in a double-boiler type pan.
And their root beer is a Culvers relabeled private brand, the name of which escapes me.

I just had my first Culver's pot roast sandwich and root beer.
The root beer a was very good. It reminded me of Dad's with just a small reduction of the biting after taste. I enjoyed it and will get it again.
The post roast was fair to good. It tasted to processed. It had a salty note that took away from the flavor of the pot roast. I end up putting ketchup on it to get it to tast to my liking. Next time I will stay with a burger.
The only negative about Culver's was that the food is pricey. The pot roast sandwich was sort of small and cost around $4.00. The bang for the buck seemed missing.

Do you like root beer floats at all? Culver's float is pretty decent. Their shakes are good too.

I have been told that Culver's rootbeer is a relabeled Rochester Brand. I believe this is a Cadbury brand that is used on the fountain because they can't use the A&W brand on the fountain. Has anyone else heard of this?
