Crunchys is a hang out for MSU students from the 80s. Always fun to return and take new people. Friends and family have a great time eating burgers and trying buckets of beer or different drinks. Always fun on football weekends. Go MSU.

Great food, and great service. Great specials and very reasonable prices. Pizza and burgers were very tasty and fast service too. The only drawback to this place is no parking. Probably not so bad for the college kids.

For bar lovers this is a great place....the burgers are great. My family and I arrived at a perfect time because by the time we left....there were 30 people waiting in line.

Stopped here for lunch with a friend. I had not eaten here for many years. They still have one of the best burgers in the Lansing area. Had mine with mushrooms, grilled onions and cheese. Fries and a Diet Coke rounded out the lunch. Will be back very soon.

I had the Crunchy burger with Pepperjack cheese. (You can pick your cheese choice, which I love!) & the Tater Tots were very good too! I was craving a good burger, and... More

Was visiting my son working on a restoration project for his older home. Wanted a good hamburger and beer, so he took me to Crunchy's. Wow, it was fantastic. Has been voted Lansing's best burger several time and I could see why. Fresh, built to my specifications, and delivered quickly with lots to eat and great sides. The staff is... More

There is no better staple for good old American food (delicious burgers!) in EL. Good beer specials, good atmosphere. You cannot go wrong with Crunchy's!

We had the pizza nubs, tacos and a burger with bacon and avocado. All tasty and the service was pleasant. The best part were the two dollar beers. Decent college dive.
