Lansing is about to get a brand new restaurant, and it's opening soon.

Restaurants Opening in Lansing

In September of 2022, after two years, the Buddy's Pizza on Lansing's west side announced that it would be shutting it's doors. It had only opened in June 2020.

Since the closure in September 2022, the building has sat empty. However, the new tenants are about to open up.

The Korean BBQ and hot pot restaurant KPOT is opening this May.
