North of Michigan State University campus across the street from the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum ( AKA the sand crawler) on Grand River Boulevard is the Peanut Barrel. Amongst several chain franchise restaurants, the Peanut Barrel is a locally owned pub that serves delicious made to order hamburgers.
The menu consists of mostly sandwiches and burgers, but they do them very well. The one thing that makes their burgers stand out is the fresh homemade buns and you have your choice of white, wheat, or my favorite rye. The burgers come with chips, but you can upgrade to fries and for less than $10 it’s the best deal in town.
Located at 521 E. Grand River Ave., East Lansing, MI 48823 it’s a little tricky to find since it’s inset from the other buildings but it also has a nice patio area for those warm summer days. If you go, be sure to go to the back of the building where the parking lot is and there is a door from the parking lot. Just to let you know, you will have to pay for parking.
