The beer selection is great -- always rotating and solid range of selections. The bar is comfortable in a divey sort of way. The mini corndogs are miraculous. And the burgers are good. This is a great happy hour sort of establishment. Great mix of clientele from MSU and town.

Good food, better beer selections. Specials are worth the visit. PIzza's are generous, good burgers and the selection of craft brews is worth the stop. Don't park in the parking lot! It's for the coffee shop and they will have you ticketed.

Fabulous burgers and draft beer complete with college ambience to die for -- nothing phony or high brow about it -- just a fun joint.

Crunchy's is a consistent winner of "Best Hamburger in Lansing" for a reason. You know you have a great hamburger when juices drip down your wrist. The best part is the price. Go to their M-F lunch specials with burger, chips and a drink. Service is frequently slow, but get pint of beer for only an extra 50 cents and... More

I was in Lansing Michigan on biz recently and hit Crunchy's for some hometown food. I was not disillusioned in the least, it was excellent. The cheeseburger was definitely one of the better ones I've had in a while. I'd recommend getting two of them if you're very hungry.

I was introduced to Crunchy's a few years ago and have been coming back every time I'm in East Lansing. The Burgers are amazing and I love that you can get tater tots instead of just fries. They have an outstanding beer selection and the service is pretty good too!

Crunchy's is a good place to grab a veggie burger if you're in East Lansing and don't wan to drive over to Red Robin. The burger was good, but nothing great -- the patty that they use is the black bean patty you can buy at Sam's Club. If they tweaked the sandwich a little bit, it would make it... More

I can honestly say that this was one of the best burgers I have had in a very long time. When I saw the building, I wasn't sure I should be eating there, but once you're inside, it's a cool, college-town restaurant with many, many craft beers and great food. I'd recommended any of the burgers, and a nice Bell's... More

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat while heading through town, it was as good as it was 25 years ago!
