We came here for dinner before a Michigan State basketball game, arrived quite early so no trouble getting a table. Place was packed by the time we left though. Had decent wine, beer, I had a great black bean wrap for dinner, really liked it, came with crumbled black bean burger, hummus, veggies, and fries. The fries were such a... More

Solid good basic food done up extremely well; during Michigan State University sessions can be crowded during lunch and dinner hours.

Crunchy's has a huge selection of craft beer on tap & bottled. Reasonably priced, too. Food was good but not great this time.

I actually hesitate to give this recommendation, because I like going to Crunchy's so much - finding a table is hard enough as it is. Crunchy's has arguably the best burger in East Lansing/Lansing. It also has one of the best beer selections and it changes frequently. You can always find some of your favorite standards mixed with lots of... More

Crunchy's is an East Lansing Classic. It is a bar near campus, that has been around longer than I have been a resident in the area. They have many microbrews on tap, but the main reason I go here is for the food. They have a lunch special on weekdays that is great. I think it costs $6 for a... More

If you have an interest in enjoying good bar food give this location a try. It has a majority of college age clientele but you still often see families dining there as well. You will enjoy the burgers, fried pickles and tater tots.

When we are in the mood for a good burger, the first place that comes to mind is Crunchy's. Most importantly, the burgers are amazing!! They're juicy and warm and so, so good! Paired with fries and a beer will set you back less than $10, with tip. Excellent service, cozy college town charm.

Thank Shannon M
