Limited menu

Food was good, but very limited in choices. It is burgers or salads and very little else. We arrive at 7:30. Asked if there was any specials. Waitress said happy hour started at 8:30. The place closed at 9. They were out of chicken. Place was empty. Not sure why buy I can imagine it is due to the... read more

Great burgers and good service (much better than Birch Run). We love their fries - both regular and sweet potato. Gluten free options available, including beer :)

I found Bagger Dave's disappointing. Maybe I'd built it up in my mind too much after hearing others talk about it. My experience was that I had a good meal -- not outstanding -- just okay. I thought it was somewhat pricey for what you got and the atmosphere was a bit cold. So so experience. I have not been... More

The burger was a burger. There was nothing special about it. We sat on the patio and that was a nice touch. However, it is not a place that I would just go to. Gluten free options consist of just not having the gluten product instead of a non gluten option. It could get a bit noisy. We had some... More

Since Bagger Dave's own review website promised follow-up and did not, I feel it needed to let others know via a site with no alternate motives. I went in for their wonderful salad and ordered a side burger. The burger was raw and the condiments must have been drowning in water or juice. The bottom bun was soaked and unedible... More

I've been here twice recently and had good experiences both times. However, I would definitely recommend their burgers the most! I got their tuna melt sandwich once and it wasn't the best. Also, I would not spend money on a side of fries, they are underwhelming. Their Mac & cheese side is delicious though! But definitely get a burger, and... More

Tried this place for the first time. Their offering Michigan craft beer was no real draw for us as you can find craft beer at almost anyplace in Michigan nowadays, but we were hungry for a burger. Found the burgers a bit over priced, the portion size was generous but the patties did not have as much flavor as our... More

Burger joint w/ fresh cut fries close to MSU campus. Mac and Cheese was extra nummy and baked fresh. (Entree version anyway.) Small bar in the back w/ basics. Small draft system. A couple of Michigan craft beers on tap.

Same waitress said... More

Great menu and great service. We had lunch on a weekday and the restaurant was not crowded. The menu selection is wonderful since you can create your own toppings and meal.. The burgers are very tasty and the atmosphere is great. I like this location and have chosen this spot over other favorite East Lansing restaurants the past couple of... More
