“Great ice cream, fried food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

We stayed near here and saw the ratings on Tripadvisor so gave it a try. The ages of our group were 60-89 so the food was too greasy for us, but tasted delicious. Burgers are small, so adults should go for a double or triple. I had the lemon custard and it was wonderful.

“for a burger, you can't beat it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

They cook your burgers on a grill and they are some of the best burgers in town. The price is average. You can eat in, but I always take mine to go. If you go later in the evening, you'll have to order outside because the inside is locked. If you are hungry for a burger, go for it.

“Best Hamburgers in Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Krekel's beats all chain fast food restaurants hands down! Their burgers the thin type but are perfect - they make great chili, and their French fries are good, too. I highly recommend Krekel's for the casual lunch or even evening meal. On a cold blustery winter night, a bowl of chili and a burger from Krekel's is divine.

“BEST HAMBURGERS IN SPRINGFIELD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

There is no better hamburger or cheeseburger in Springfield!!! It's old school flat top grilling that makes it so good. The burgers aren't thick, I get a triple cheese with a little ketchup and mustard only every time. I don't add a lot to the burger because I want to taste it and not the condiments. I also get a chocolate shake as they are awesome as well. Not the healthiest meal you will eat while in Spfld but that triple cheese/chocolate shake combo will be one of the best. The cost for these two items will be around $9.00. They are closed on Sundays.

“Good comfort food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Krekel's is definitely not a place for a fancy sit-down dinner, but it's one of my favorite places to eat. They have one of the best hamburgers I've eaten. Their fries are good, and their ice cream is incredible. One of my favorite meals as a child was Krekel's grilled cheese with fries and a root beer and chocolate ice cream. If you want just a good hamburger and fries, I highly recommend Krekel's.
