Excellent cheeseburger

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

Crunchy's is an East Lansing icon and a favorite of many of the MSU athletes and coaches, as well as students. We stopped in for lunch. My husband has eaten here several times. During the week they have a super deal of a burger, fries and a drink for $5.99! The burgers are considered some of the best in the... More

Otherwise this place has always been kind of the MSU Hockey spot where players like to come.Many times you can score a pair of hockey tix if you need them by asking the... More

Crunchy's burgers were very good; they were done right, and a perfect size. And, with the suggested toppings, the varieties of burgers that can be had are quite impressive. The draft beer list was also superb, with mostly microbrews and craft beers, most of them from Michigan (those that weren't were still good selections). The establishment is definitely a "local"...

We went with a group of MSU alumni to this campus favorite. Fun setting with names graffiti covering the walls. Friendly staff. Great deal of bucket of beer (=6 pitchers??) and 2 buckets of food for less than $40. Great selection of other beers as well. Really enjoyed my time here!

Came in pre-game (early) Msu vs Um and got a seat. The tailgate deals are perfect, $2 26oz Miller and Labatt and Bloodies & Screwdrivers? Check. Under $4 for a 1/4 lb burger? Check. We'll be back, but only for the deals. Never would go there to watch a game TVs too hard to watch, most on one channel and... More
