  • Get the Rodeo Burger with fries and wash it down with a Blue Moon. Delish!
  • Serves probably the best Long Island Ice Tea in East Lansing
  • Try the Long Islands. There is a limit of 2 for a reason.
  • Long Islands here are delicious as is the Chicken Salad! Worth the wait to sit out on the patio!
  • The long island recipe has remained unchanged since it came to now famous bartender, Michael Dorsey, in a dream he had in 1954.
  • Always get a burger. ALWAYS.
  • Be nice to the bartenders and wait staff. They're the ish!
  • For 25 years, I have ordered the same thing here: border burger with Swiss on rye. Wash it down w a Sierra Nevada. Pure heaven, best burgers in mid-Michigan...
  • Pro Tip: If you have 2 long islands outside, then move inside, you potentially could get away with ordering more long islands.
  • Had the much-acclaimed olive burger on rye. . . It was ok but it came overdone. Not sure if they normally ask or not, but definitely specify if you like your meat medium or rarer.
  • Try their olive burger -- one of the best I've ever eaten.
  • You must try a burger here! Best bar in EL!
  • Second time coming here. Ordered the burger rare twice and it came out medium. It's a little overrated
  • Cheap drinks, take out beer available. Happy hour is. 25 cents off bottles and drafts and $1 off pitchers.
  • It's always AWESOME!! Shroom burger is the best!
  • I love the Long Islands! But they restrict people to 2. boooo.
  • The Border Burger and fries with a cold draft beer = heaven. Great staff at this classic tavern. Joe Bell runs the best bar in the greater Lansing area.
  • Stop in and give our latest #BeeroftheMonth a try...Frankenmuth's Batch 69 IPA...$3.50 a bottle!
  • Came on Friday Night for drinks and the service was terrible.
  • BEST burgers in EL! I like 'Sal's Memorial 'Shroom Burger', but a lot of people like the Olive Burger. Long Islands are set at a limit of three, so take advantage if you're looking to catch a buzz.
