Any resident of the Lansing area knows about Crunchy’s. Specifically, the Crunchy Burger or, as the menu reads, “The Famous Crunchy Burger”. And it’s a good burger (like how I’m getting right to the point?) Nothing fancy, just a simple lettuce – tomato – onion cheeseburger cooked how you like it. A solid burger to meet your burger needs, and we all have them. You will not go wrong ordering this burger. And you can get it with chips, fries, onion rings, or tater tots. What variety! Boggles the mind.
But Crunchy’s is also known for its beer. The draft list is constantly changing, and they have a great selection of beers, both in-state and out. It’s one of the best spots in the area to try a wide variety of beer styles, and they have regular beer events posted on their website. And they have a Crunchy’s card, so if you drink enough beer (and you should), you’ll get a discount down the line.
And I can’t forget the décor. In between the beer paraphernalia adorning the walls are scribbles and signatures of Spartans present and past. And the Christmas lights are a nice touch. Even though I write this in May, I can practically hear the sleigh bells. Or the cash register or my ears – something that rings.
Before you can enter Crunchy’s, though, you have to find the entrance. It’s in an alley, but if you just follow the signs, you will not be led astray from the burger – beer goodness that lurks inside.
