Cheesesteaks, sliders and wings invade Lansing


Greater Lansing foodies have a lot to be excited for as Lansing continues to build on the momentum of its recent wave of restaurant openings and announcements. Two spots from established Michigan-based franchises are ready for you to check out today.

Lefty’s Cheesesteaks is a fast expanding Michigan chain of sandwich shops launched in 2012 that has made its mark on the state with its take on the classic Philadelphia cheesesteak. The chain also offers a number of burgers and hoagie-style sandwiches that can be loaded to the brim with your preferred meats and veggies.  

Craving a new location for some delicious slider-style burgers? Sidecar Slider Bar, a boutique burger eatery founded in 2016 that has grown popular in the Detroit area, has finally opened up its new location in Lansing’s Stadium District. The restaurant specializes in gourmet sliders — miniature burgers prepared in a huge variety of ways, for those still not in the know — specialty cocktails and craft beer. Sidecar Slider Bar is also known for its unique interior decorations, which feature a vintage motorcycle motif.

Lansing is also receiving another transplant from Detroit to get excited for, the Detroit Wing Co. The wing restaurant, which was established in 2015 and has since received high marks from critics and frequently pops up on lists ranking the best hot wings available in Michigan, announced on its Facebook page that it is scheduled to open up a new joint in Lansing. It will be located on South Cedar Street next to Tropical Smoothie. 

Meanwhile, the chaotic world of Mr. Taco, an old beloved Lansing Mexican restaurant that was recently revived and has since had difficulties maintaining stable business hours, might have some added drama coming its way. Construction spotted next to the local taco spot on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard has been confirmed to be the future site of another Taco Bell.
