Best double cheeseburgers in Illinois! Quick service and fairly priced. Their lemon ice cream is delicious too!

Krekel's is still an old fashioned hamburger stand. Place your order at the counter. Get your number, pay for your food and get handed a brown paper bag. Burgers wrapped in wax paper too hot to eat at first. Thin, crisp and delicious!

Krekel's is a Decatur golden nugget! Awesome burgers, delicious shakes and the lemon ice cream can't be beat! Family members that have moved away ask us to bags of burgers for them when we visit! Yum!

Burgers are average. They are closed on Sundays and Sunday afternoon ice cream is the best. Krekels has different flavors of soft serve. Lemon..Strawberry..Chocolate and of course Vanilla. Ask for sprinkles because that makes your ice cream even better. Krekels also has picnic tables which is really nice to sit outside..Enjoy!!

Krekels has been around for many years for a good reason. It's a local chain specializing in sandwiches and ice cream. The burgers are the thinner type with crispy edges and have a taste all their own. They have vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and lemon custard-yum! When our grown kids come into town, a "Krekels run" is a must! The food... More

This is the best place for burgers. Locals and most first timers love this place. Miss it since we moved and look forward to eating here when we return to Illinois.

Krekels provides zero ambiance but gives you a perfect burger with crispy edges and juicy center. I could live on the double cheeseburger. The only thing that can match it is the lemon ice cream. Try that with chocolate topping. Yummo!

The title says it all. They also have great chili and shakes. There are 4 Krekels in town, and only two have indoor dining.
