“The best burgers in town.”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

The title says it all. They also have great chili and shakes. There are 4 Krekels in town, and only two have indoor dining.

“Decatur landmark”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Great great hamburgers, cheeseburgers, shakes, fries, etc, etc. Only reason it does not get a 4 star is it is getting very pricey for what you get with regards to portions anymore. They need to be careful not to price themselves out of competition.

“Good Burgers.....”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The Krekel's burger is a must if you are coming to town. These are thin burgers and they are unlike any other. If you are there you might as well have a hot fudge shake or a lemon cone. They have lots of other flavors, but I am partial to these. Enjoy! there are five shops here in town. I like the one in Mt. Zion and Moundford Plaza.

“Hamburger Heaven”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The best hamburgers in Decatur by far. They have been in Decatur for a long, long time and I have been to the one in the Colonial Mall most frequently.
