Food review: Olympic Broil satisfies
Five out of Five Stars
By Chloe Gregg
Olympic Broil is one of Lansing’s best kept secrets. With its blue and white Sonic-like building and traditional great American menu, it’s no wonder Olympic Broil is packed during dinner time every day.
Luckily, for those wanting dinner there, the line is always moving.
Located at 1320 N. Grand River Ave., about a mile from LCC, Olympic Broil is hard to miss with its big white building and blue arches. The restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. every Monday through Saturday and is closed on Sundays.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Olympic Broil has closed its inside doors from the public, but is still operating as a solely drive-thru restaurant. According to its website, Olympic Broil hopes to return to both drive-thru and sit-down as soon as the seating capacity restrictions are lifted to allow 100 percent seating capacity.
Personally, I go to Olympic Broil about twice a month. It is really one of the only fast-food restaurants I continuously go to. Why? It’s just that good. Seriously.
From the Humdinger (one of its signature cheeseburgers), to the hand-tossed onion rings, to the delicious Coney dogs, to the mouthwatering shakes, Olympic Broil knows what’s good.
And what’s better?
Without skimping out on good ingredients and a nicely portioned meal, Olympic Broil is still super cheap. And when you request extra ketchup, you actually get it, instead of the two packets McDonald’s can hardly bear to part with.
So if you’re looking to impress someone with a place that may change their life for the better, or for a new place to just try out, this is it. Look no further.
Olympic Broil is just the kind of new place you need in your life. So go get in the drive-thru line, get your food, plop down at one of the many picnic tables outside of Olympic Broil and dive into what Heaven tastes like.
You won’t be disappointed.
