For those of us old enough to remember the original Popeye cartoon series or if you ever saw Popeye the movie, you'll know that J. Wellington Wimpy was Popeye's friend. Wimpy was very intelligent, and well educated, but also very lazy. Wimpy loved to eat hamburgers and was usually seen carrying or eating one or more at a time or seen grinding meat almost the entire time – however, he was usually too cheap to pay for them himself. "Cook me up a hamburger. I'll pay you Thursday" was his best-known catchphrase.
I have quite a bit in common with Wimpy, mostly my love for a good hamburger. Although I tend to stay away from the fast-food version of a hamburger, there are several restaurants here in the valley of the sun I frequent from time-to-time for a delicious burger. And, of course, you can't beat a juicy char-broiled burger which just came off the grill from your own backyard. Yum!
Recently, a new chain has opened here in Phoenix that I am finding hard to resist - Culver's. In my opinion, their burgers are far better than any of the other fast-food joints and I'm sure Wimpy would even agree. Their specialty is the butter burger. Oh, my! Like other franchised operations they, too, offer a menu full of basket meals where you can select from a number of mouth-watering sides. Let me tell you, their onion rings are absolutely divine.
Yesterday, as I was perusing the Internet, I came across a fabulous offer from Culver's. If you join their eClub you will receive a coupon for a buy one, get one free value basket meal. For those of you who have never ventured to Culver's, this offer is an excellent opportunity for you to give them a try and "Get Culverized". For those of you who already enjoy Culver's...bonus!
