East Lansing is known nation-wide as a football town, and this creates a lot of hungry students looking for (good & greasy) food to prevent and cure their hangovers. Luckily for these students these tasty burgers are just a short¬†walk away. I present to you East Lansing’s top 3 burger restaurants.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Five Guys Burgers and Fries is the home of the ultimate greasy burger. There is no limit to the amount of toppings and sauces you can add to your burger. When they say build-to-order, they¬†mean it. There is also a option to go cajun on your fry seasoning, and if you haven’t tried it you should.

Peanut Barrel

Peanut Barrel provides excellent atmosphere along with it’s delicious burger combo, with patio seating located along Grand River Ave. I enjoy Peanut Barrel for it’s simplicity in how their burger is made, cooked on a stove top and covered with a bowl to retain moisture. It’s cooked perfectly, and placed in between a bun of your choice (white, whole wheat, or rye). Served with hand cut fries and a pickle spear.


Crunchy’s has been provides East Lansing student’s with a venue to perform their favorite songs, giving the perfect atmosphere for it’s burger loving patrons. Looks like a hold in the wall, filled with college students from duck till dawn, and cooking up a mouth-watering burger, Crunchy’s has made a home in East Lansing. It’s hard not to smile and feel at home when you walk into this friendly bar and enjoy a burger and bucket of beer with your buddies.
