College bar atmosphere with multiple TV’s and dirty restrooms. You can order buckets of beer and even (yuk) buckets of food. We had the “famous” burger which was ok. The 8 inch pizza which looked and tasted like a frozen one from the grocery store....More

Went here late night during the week. Hardly anyone here. We went here because they have TouchTunes. The two food items were good. Pizza bites/bread were very good. Not sure the name of them there. Would go back if ever in the area.

I usually do not order burgers at restaurants because I'm picky about how they are done. Crunchy's did them well for a reasonable price. I'd definitely go back again.

Always a great place to grab a bite, but will be packed on game days and game nights. Sandwiches and other dishes looked great at surrounding tables, but went just for the burger. Family during the day, but later in the evening becomes a college...More

The food was good and tasty, but not great. The tomatos and lettuce weren't ripe. Fun 80's interior, but worn.

I was here many years ago-when it was the Greyhound bus station. What a surprise to see it as a restaurant! The burgers were big and delicious (and I’m not a big red meat fan.). The staff was friendly, service was good. I’d go back...More

I stepped in to get a beer and some wings and I am glad that I did. The beer selection was fine but the wings were better. They were huge. Service was very good as well. Close to campus but can be busy on a...More

Reliably tasty food and good beer selection in a classic college-town tavern. Atmosphere is upbeat. Seating is in booths and at tables. The service staff are quick and attentive. Popular evening and weekend hours can be crowded. The only inconvenience/challenge is parking availability.

The first time I visited was because we heard Crunchy’s had great burgers. My mother traveled over an hour just to go here. We were sorely disappointed. The burgers were tasteless frozen Sysco patties. There was absolutely nothing special about it. The second visit was...More

this restaurant/bar has been around for as long as I can remember. Decent size, some arcade games, outdoor patio. People have written or scratched their names into every surface, that alone will keep the conversation going. Great beer and burger specials. Tots are awesome!

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
