Without a doubt, Lansing has an incredibly delicious food scene.

It's full of tons of variety. From perfectly fried pub food to fresh salads, fall-off-the-bone smoked meats to decadent desserts, and everything in between, there are lots of can't miss restaurants in the greater Lansing area.

Lansing is missing out on some yummy chain restaurants that are not available everywhere. And we're not talking about adding another Taco Bell to the lineup. We're talking about places like Jack-in-the-Box and In-N-Out Burger, which are only found on the west coast. And what about a delicious Chicago dog? We don't want to have to drive to Chicago every time we want a delicious Portillo's hot dog.
