I think we can all agree, that besides sports, food is a big uniter amongst us all. I mean, how can you go wrong when sitting down and bonding over a delicious meal.

Forget the typical family fights, we're brining you some new restaurants, or would like to see them that is. Take a look at the most requested restaurants that Lansing wants to see.

These Are Restaurants Lansing Would Love To See

While Lansing, especially the area of East Lansing (thank you college students), we have some variety of food chains. But, we don't have a ton compared to bigger cities in Michigan such as Grand Rapids or Detroit.

We took to social media, and asked the people of Lansing which fast food chains that they would like to see make their way to Lansing.

There were a lot of different answers, but there were ten in particular that stood out the most to us. Let's see if the power of the internet can persuade these companies to enter the city of Lansing.

10.) Bubba Gumps

While not every state has Bubba Gump's Shrimp... just the states with a lot of tourism... Lansing would love to see this chain in Lansing.

9.) Braum's

Braum's isn't a Michigan thing, but it could be compared to that of Dairy Queen! According to Braum's themselves, you'll only find them in Oklahoma and parts of Texas, Kansas and two other states.

8.) Cheesecake Factory

Lucky for you, there are two Cheesecake Factories here in Michigan, however if you're in Mid-Michigan, prepare for a drive.

7.) Jack In The Box

You won't find many of these on our side of the country, not unless you travel out west. However, this is a restaurant Lansing is craving.

6.) Zaxby’s

Known mainly for their fried chicken, you may not find a Zaxby's here in the North, as this is a Southern food chain.

5.) Del Taco

4.) Golden Corral

We don't have a ton to offer in all you can eat food here in the Mid-Michigan area, but unfortunately, these chains aren't as common anymore.

3.) White Castle

While you can find some here around Michigan, we don't have any here in Lansing... how do we do this?

2.) In-N-Out Burger

Believe it or not, Sonic was the most requested restaurant here in the Lansing area!

As always, don't forget to shop local and eat local, but also enjoy the restaurants we have while we have them!
