For a lot of people, "normal business" hours are just fine. But what are "normal" business hours? For clothing stores and the like, maybe 8 or 9 pm. For mixed retail spaces like Target or Meijer, maybe a bit longer, say 6 am to 11 pm or midnight. But for restaurants, that's a whole different ball game.

There are a ton of instances where people like to eat late. Maybe you're just a night owl and dinner for you doesn't happen until around 9 pm. Perhaps you're a third shifter, and the whole nature of your work shift is that you cover the overnight hours. Or, in East Lansing at least, you might be a student.

East Lansing Restaurants Open Late

College students tend to run on a schedule all their own. And if they're up late studying (or let's be honest here, drinking and partying), they need that fuel to get them through the rest of the night.

Sadly, some spots in East Lansing that were open late are not even in business anymore, like Taco Bell or Wings Over East Lansing. But there are still places that are open late enough for you to grab some grub at almost all hours of the night.

In honor of those seeking food at those odd hours of the night, I did the leg work for you, because I too remember being slightly intoxicated walking down Grand River Avenue after a night of drinking and in desperate need of some french fries and chicken tenders.

Check out the list of eateries open late-night in East Lansing below. And keep in mind, that this is based on their hours of operation listed on Google. There might be some cases where, due to staffing issues or their kitchen closing early, those hours might differ.
