“Best College Dive Around”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Burgers are great. The tap selection is always fun. Brings me back to my youth! Don't expect your table be finely draped.

“Classic E.L. Burger joint”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

They are known for their Crunchy Burger, but they also have one of the best draft beer selections in the area. They are continually rotating the taps and feature many local microbrews. Great place for a beer and a burger.

“Awesome beer selection”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Seriously, I always disliked the environment of this place (sorority row types), but they now have a selection of Michigan micro-brews that will rival any brew anywhere. Try to go when there is no live music (I have never felt a need to ask someone to not sing because it hurt me so much.)

“Good burgers”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

We sat here for three hours before a basketball game and the place was packed. The service was really, really slow and you would think they would be prepared for game day. The Crunchy burger was outstanding, maybe one of the best I have ever had. It was your typical kind of beat up college bar so no stars for decor, but it was a good atmosphere. If you have the time stop, just don’t plan on a quick burger and beer on game day.

“Great place for good food, service and atmosphere. Impressive local beer list.”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Chruchy burger is always perfect. Not one those over-the-top chain concoctions - you can taste real quality meat and great, well thought topping combos.
