    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.

    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.

    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...

    The Olive Burger is incredible! Try it on Rye, a dark, flavorful toasted bun. Want to step it up a notch? Add cheddar and bacon!

    Pro Tip: If you have 2 long islands outside, then move inside, you potentially could get away with ordering more long islands.

    Straightforward burgers. Great prices and a good selection of beer. Atmosphere is usually low key.

    The long island recipe has remained unchanged since it came to now famous bartender, Michael Dorsey, in a dream he had in 1954.

    The burger special isn't on the actual menu, but is posted next to the front door. Cheeseburger, chips, and a soft drink for less than $5.00, great deal.

    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.

    If you don't like styrofoam, avoid the potato salad. Or ask if they can serve it in a different type of bowl?

    If you're a professional drinker, the limit of 2 long islands is a joke. But it's still a decent dive bar.
