Between concerts, skating rinks, recreation trails, bars, dancing, movie theaters, and sports contests, nightly events are happening in Grand Rapids almost daily. And trust us, attending these events can work up an appetite!
Experience Grand Rapids asked social media followers to find a good solution to this question: Where is your favorite place to eat that serves food after 10PM?
Here are some of their top responses:
Yesterdog, an Eastown treasure with a city-wide following, is known for their fan-favorite hot dogs. It comes recommended in our Facebook poll by Cassie Villareal and Dan Olson: the latter describes Yesterdog as a “classic.” Not to mention, their hotdogs are affordable. Try an Ultradog loaded with cheddar cheese, shredded pickles, chili, onions, ketchup and mustard for only $2.70! Or for non-meat eaters, try a Veggiedog with cheese, kraut, onion, pickles, mustard, and ketchup for only $2.60!
Yesterdog is open Monday to Saturday from 10:30AM to 2:30AM, and Sundays from 10:30AM to 1AM. Remember, Yesterdog does not accept credit cards, so hold onto your cash for your late night visit.
