A list of Black-owned restaurants in Lansing


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Following the protests over George Floyd’s death by a Minneapolis Police Officer, many people on social media are finding ways to support Black-owned restaurants in their local community.

Due to the support, Black business owners have been seeing an uptick in sales.

With restaurants and bars re-opening with some restrictions on capacity, WLNS TV-6 News compiled a list of Black-owned restaurants in the Lansing Area.

All dine-in/ take-out options are current based on Google’s listings as of June 9, 2020 and may not be updated according to Gov. Whitmer’s Executive Order allowing restaurants to re-open June 8.

It is advised to call ahead of time to ensure the business is open and its services are true to Google’s status of dine-in, take-out and delivery.
