I don't know about you, but I spend a lot of time thinking about food. After breakfast, it's time to decide what I'll have for lunch. Right after I eat lunch, I start planning what I'm going to eat for dinner. And the cycle continues.

Speaking of food, even if you enjoy cooking, sometimes it's nice to eat something that you didn't have to make for yourself. And ordering from a restaurant means you also get to support a local business, so it's a win-win.

Right now, it's especially important to support our local restaurants. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has ordered that bars and restaurants in Michigan temporarily stop serving dine-in guests. Restaurants are still open for take-out and delivery business, though.

If you are looking for a great meal in the Lansing area, check out the restaurants below. This list is being continually updated, so check back often.
