After over three decades, Crunchy's still has the best burgers in town! Spouse and I are both alums and live out of state. We always make an effort to get back to the stomping grounds of our youth. It is so nice that Crunchy's atmosphere...More

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.

Crunchy's is a fun laid-back place to have a burger and a beer. Their burger special is a great deal! Add to that they have a tremendous selection of beer on tap. Lastly, even the enchilada is good!

Crunchy's is the quintessential college bar: beer buckets, buckets of fried goodness, tons of burger options, and wonderful(ly horrid) karaoke 3x a week. Very fun, super loud, service can get insanely slow, but you'll enjoy yourself.

Great lunch. Fortunately (for us), not much of a student presence at that time of day, but still very busy. Squeezed a couple of spots at the bar. Burgers, wraps, tater tots, First Oberon of the spring. Definitely will try to get back there.

Crunchy's has been a top rated student destination for as long as I can remember. It has an excellent beer list, and great bar food. (Especially pizza and hamburgers) The only downfall is its size, it fills quick and people tend to stay. When school...More

Love this burger bar! Savannah was the best ever. We had 30 people, all our food was hot, fast, correct and it was absolute service with a smile. Subtract the biggby parking tickets and it was an awesome experience!

During the daytime hours til 6p or so I think it'd be fine. I'd avoid, in particular Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings/nights -- big time college students' night's out. If your kids are teens or older, might be a good... More
