From the outside college dumpy, the inside too, but the lunch was grew

Went there with my daughter, son-in-law and their two kids on a recent trip to Lansing. The ambience is somewhere else, but the lunch food was very good. Three of us had burgers of various types, and they were very good. The french fires were slightly above average for pub food. My grandson' had... read more

Crunchy's is the kind of place you go to when all that matters is a good burger, a good beer selection, and you don't mind a little background noise. It doesn't pretend to be someplace it's not. But for what it is, a noisy college bar, it does perfectly. Brings back memories of those times!

I went there with friends twice. East time I found the place greasy and dirty. It's popular with college kids (cheap beer and food)

I spent plenty of time here while going to MSU. Bringing the family back for lunch was a real treat. They absolutely loved the burgers and our nephew always wants to go back!!

I was at Michigan St. for a conference and walked around the area. I saw Crunchy's from afar and heard from someone at the hotel they had good burgers. So I tried it out, what a great recommendation! Burger was amazing and the beer on tap was even better. It was my first trip to Michigan and wasn't familiar with... More

I was in town for the draft horse show down at the Ag Pavilion. I searched TA for a decent bar and Crunchy's came up. We got there about 9 pm and had to wait almost 45 minutes on a Friday night to get in. It was karoke night and full of what I assumed were students but still very... More

Exactly what you'd expect. Good food. Relaxed atmosphere. Lots of choices. Old style place with lots of memorabilia & wood where you can write / carve your name. Bar food is top notch. And actually a little inventive such as the "buckets" of sliders or pizza dough with pepperoni & sauce for dipping. Lots of beer choices. Which helped as... More

Awesome half pound chargrilled burgers. Only $6.29 for burger, fries, soda. My new favorite burger joint. I loved it! It's right downtown East Lansing close to the campus.

I've been here on a Friday night with my boyfriend, during his stay at msu because everybody suggested us to come. Cool place, good food and wonderful atmosphere, it was a karaoke night. But had to wait more than an hour to get in! Service was extremely fast and we got our Famous Crunchy's burger in nearly 5 minutes. They... More
