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

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!

Crunchy's always has good food and an extensive beer list. Their burgers and pizza are my favorites! Mike D is a great trivia host on Tuesdays. Always an entertaining evening.

Burgers were very good and cooked to order, "bucket of fresh cut fries was great with vinegar" . We were very surprised by the amount of fries. Good selection of beer on tap. They let us sample a couple and glad we did. The pineapple...More

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
