Been here a few times. I don't understand the glowing ratings. The food is extremely average. There are better places in town.

We stopped in here for lunch. The beer was good, cheap and cold and the food was OK. The entrance to the restaurant was very strange.... down a alley with a metal door. Parking was limited to 4 spots.

We asked the waitress what her favorite food was and both things she suggested were awesome! The buffalo chicken wrap was like no wrap I've had and the fish tacos had a great kick! So glad we stopped here.

Crunchy's is an East Lansing staple. For years it has had excellent burgers and a good selection of beer. There is a reason it has been there "forever".

Visiting campus with my family and we're looking for a great student bar/burger joint. Crunchy's has a great college atmosphere, friendly staff, and great burgers. Will definitely be coming back here all the time when I start school here in the fall.
