Burger Down
529 E. Grand River, East Lansing, MI 48823

The best burgers are not grilled, flame broiled, nor are they microwaved. The best burgers are fried on a griddle and served with fresh-cut fries fried in peanut oil. I discovered this in Northern Virginia when I had my first burger from Five Guys. I always assumed I’d have to drive to Ohio or back to Virginia to experience that again. Not so! Right here in East Lansing is a local gem following the same path.

These burgers will spit in the face of your diet and you’ll need a bottle of fish liver oil pills to clean out your arteries afterwards. But it’s so worth it! This is burger perfection.

Don’t expect anything else, besides burgers and fries. They stick to what they do well. Plenty of toppings, including fried onions, can be added at will. A nice little touch is their “come back sauce” that seems to be a tasty mix of ketchup and mustard.

UPDATE: It seems that this fine establishment has gone out of business.  A “for lease” sign now sits in the window.
