“Always Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

I still fiend for Menna's Joint and get it every time I even drive by Lansing. You want breakfast? cool. You want dinner? also cool... There's is just something about those steamy burritos that does not compare to any other place I've ever been to. Wish there was one closer to my house in Livonia! (hint hint Menna's!)

“Solid drunk food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Menna's is a great place to grab a small bite to eat after a night of drinking downtown. Their fries are especially tasty.

“Best late night food around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

The food is amazing and unique. Just don't plan on going there late night unless you want to deal with the 5,000 other drunk students coming out of the bar- although it's always a good show.

“Nice alternative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

If you're a little tired of the usual fast food choices, this is the place for you. Located a little off the beaten path in the Hannah Plaza (east of the MSU campus). Caters to the college crowd. Open to 3am most nights, 4am Thu-Sat. Delivery available. Decor is mostly pop culture posters of movies and musicians. Take out or eat-in. There were 6 4-person booths and 6 2-person tables. I don't think they ever get totally filled, so you should be able to find a seat. Service was friendly, usual employees appear to be college students. Took only 5 minutes to have my order made. Now what do they serve? Their main thing is something termed a "dub". It's basically freshly cooked meat and veggies wrapped up in a big tortilla. They have many varieties of dubs. I had a Fajita dub which contained chicken, cheddar, mozzarella, lettuce, tomato, green pepper, onion, and sour cream. It was absolutely delicious and filling. Most dubs will cost $5.75-6.50. A smaller version called a "dubbie" will run $4.00-4.75. BTW, there's no trays or plates. You just unroll the aluminized paper the dub is wrapped in and start eating. Gets a bit messy, so grab some napkins. Also available are some salads, broccoli cheddar soup, and cube shaped fries. Coke products available, $1.50 for a medium with free refills.

“Something Different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Although the food is tasty, it can get a little pricey. If you get one of the smaller sandwiches, you may be a bit dissappointed for spending as much as you did. They are not very filling, but they taste very good.
