10 Local East Lansing, Michigan Restaurants Everyone In The Area Should Be Supporting Right Now

Many restaurants across the world have suffered through financial hardships due to COVID-19. Restaurants need to get all the help they can get. Some restaurants are even offering take out and delivery.

So here is a list of local restaurants that I compiled that people in East Lansing should definitely try.

Dagwood's Tavern and Grill

Address: 2803 E Kalamazoo St, Lansing, MI. 48912

Website: https://dagwoodstavern.com/

Options: Takeout

Mentioned by MLive as the top 10 best fries in Michigan, Dagwood's Tavern and Grill lives up to the hype for the top ten best fries in Michigan. The fries are crispy on the outside and fluffy interior. It's not heavily salted, in fact, seasoning is not necessary for these fries.

Not to mention, their fresh juicy burger with a toasted white or wheat bun of your choice is delicious. It is not greasy in any way, so you can taste the meat of the patty as well as not having to deal with greasy soggy fries. Despite the fact that it is takeout only and probably dine in now, I would not disregard this place. It is worth trying.

Conrad's Grill

Address: Multiple locations - Frandor, E Grand River Ave., W Grand River Ave.

Website: https://www.conradsgrill.com/

Options: Takeout and delivery by third-party apps (Eatstreet and Grubhub).

People cannot go wrong with Conrad's Grill. The iconic tot wrap is a favorite among MSU students. Whether someone is casually eating it for lunch or after a late night out (although unlikely now), Conrad's is an option that people should definitely try.

Biting into the wrap, people can taste the moist chicken as well as the flavorful creamy sauce. Having the number one as well as their gooey mozzarella sticks is worth buying for takeout or delivery.

Fun fact, Joseph Conrad, the owner of Conrad's, used to be one of the co-owners for Menna's Joint, another place that serves potato related wraps. Unfortunately, Menna's Joint closed down in the East Lansing area.

Lou and Harry's Bar & Grill

Address: 211 E Grand River Ave. East Lansing, MI. 48823

Website: https://www.louhas.com/

Options: Takeout and delivery by third-party apps (Uber Eats, Grubhub, Eatstreet, Seamless, DoorDash, Postmates).

Lou and Harry's Bar & Grill is a hot spot among East Lansing, most known for their mug nights on Thursday nights. But what they are also known for are the Greek options that they have to offer. The most delicious aspect of Lou and Harry's is the Greek dressing. It is so delicious that they are selling their signature Greek dressing to the public at the Meridian Farmers Market. Their flavorful gyro as well as their rodeo burger is worth trying.

Eastside Fish Fry & Grill

Address: 2417 E Kalamazoo St., Lansing, MI. 48912

Website: http://eastsidefishfry.com/

Options: Takeout and delivery by third-party apps (Eatstreet, Postmates, Grubhub, Seamless).

Not a huge fan of burgers? Look no further! Eastside Fish Fry & Grill serves fried chicken, fish, and delicious pig skins. What is most important when it comes to Eastside Fish Fry & Grill is their seasoning. The seasoning is evenly salted with a hint of sweetness.

People would think it would not work, but I can guarantee to the people, it is fantastic. So much so that even Guy Fieri went to the restaurant and offers a whole package called "The Guy Fieri." Eastside Fish Fry & Grill is a great place to get takeout from. Enjoy with friends and family, as long as people are adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Phở So 1

Address: 4790 Hagadorn Rd. East Lansing, MI. 48823

Website: https://phoso1.weebly.com/

Options: Takeout and delivery by third-party apps (DoorDash, Grubhub, Eatstreet, Mr. Delivery).

There are not that many places in Michigan that serve Vietnamese food, but Phở So 1 is a great place to eat Vietnamese food.

Ranging from bánh mì (Vietnamese sandwiches) to a bowl of phở (rice noodle soup) to bún (rice vermicelli noodles), Phở So 1 is a good place where people can eat Vietnamese food. The bowl of phở has interesting rich fragrance and the bún is extremely filling.

It is a pretty solid option for people who want to eat or try Vietnamese food.


Address: 254 W Grand River Ave. East Lansing, MI. 48823

Website: https://crunchyseastlansing.com/

Options: Takeout and delivery

There is something special about Crunchy's. Whether it is the friendly staff, food, karaoke, there is just something about them that makes them special in East Lansing.

The pizza itself has an even blend of both cheese, sauce, and dough. The burgers are char-grilled to perfection and it is delicious. Interested in beer? They got that too.

They have a wide variety of different beers that are unique. If burgers or pizza is not interesting, there are calzones, sandwiches, chicken wings, and they even have veggie options.

Want to chill with your roommates and have bar food at home watching whatever is on the TV? Get Crunchy's delivered to you or get it through takeout.

Ding Tea

Address: 970 Trowbridge Rd. East Lansing, MI. 48823

Website: https://dingtea.myrestaurantops.co/

Options: Takeout and delivery by third party apps (Uber eats, Grubhub, DoorDash).

Not looking for food and just want drinks? Ding Tea is the perfect option for people who just want to drink sweet and flavorful boba tea. It is a solid place for anybody looking for boba tea.

They offer basic options such as the classic black milk tea, taro, or green tea as well as more extravagant options such as Hokkaido oolong milk tea or the matcha milk tea.

People can also choose the level of sweetness as well. It is a great place to get a refreshing drink after that takeout or delivered food you just ate.

Sansu Sushi & Cocktails

Address: 4750 Hagadorn Rd #100. East Lansing, MI. 48823

Website: http://sansu-sushi.com/

Options: Takeout and delivery

Sansu Sushi & Cocktails is a great place for those who are sushi enthusiasts. Their rolls are larger than what others may usually have, but the rolls are flavorful. What is most distinctive about Sansu is people can taste the freshness of the fish and that is what makes Sansu special.

They keep the true roots of eating sushi by having people appreciate the taste of the rice and fish. Presentation-wise, it is very beautiful and mouth-watering.

If I had to choose a sushi place for quality and flavor to get takeout or delivery, I would choose this place over any others in East Lansing.

El Oasis

Address: 2501 E Michigan Ave. Lansing, MI. 48912

Website: http://eloasisfood.com/

Options: Takeout and delivery by phone. Phone: 517-882-1777

The food truck that does not disappoint. El Oasis's food is more flavorful than other Mexican restaurants around the greater East Lansing area. The tacos, the burritos, and the chips are all freshly made to perfection.

If I had to be specific, the rice and beans are extremely flavorful, which is rare compared to some Mexican restaurants. The salsa and guacamole are so delicious that it is a must.

Highly recommended for people who are fans of Mexican food and for people who want to eat flavorful Mexican food. They even have a vegetarian burrito for those who eat meatless foods.

Green Dot Stables

Address: 410 S Clippert St. Lansing, MI. 48912

Website: https://www.greendotstables.com/

Options: Takeout

Green Dot Stables is a great option for those who are looking for something cheap. Cheap does not mean that it is low quality, in fact, the food is quite amazing for the price.

They offer a wide variety of sliders ranging from chicken sliders to burgers to even plant-based options. Despite their size, they are flavorful and filling.

They also have a unique variety of fries. The most delicious fries that they have are the truffle and herb fries. The truffle and herb fries are so fragrant and so flavorful.

They even have beer to go, as long as ID is presented. So if you are looking for a place that is cheap and has beer to go, Green Dot Stables is the place.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
