Very well known place for a reason! The inside is pretty small, but the food is very fun. Nothing too fancy but a great stop for tacos, breakfast or a casual lunch. The staff was friendly and were managing the busyness very well.

Review №2

Waited outside in some crazy windy weather for about 20 mins and then finally headed inside to sit at the bar area, everyone seemed very sweet and happy to help! My Wife enjoyed watching the flow of the kitchen cook everything to amazing perfection! The fried potatoes were the best! It was like going back to our childhood breakfast spots! We will definitely be back!

Review №3

Super friendly staff, fabulous variety of unique comfort food. Outdoor seating and quick! Xoxo

Review №4

Review №5

Today was my first time at Good Truckin' Diner. Staff were courteous and wore masks properly. The food was flavorful, and the portions were incredible. The Cinnister cereal shake was inventive and delicious. I'll definitely be back.

Review №6

Stopped here for breakfast while in Lansing for a business trip. Great food, very nice atmosphere, and the staff was very friendly and attentive. My coffee cup was never empty which is very nice. Thanks for the great food and awesome service!

Review №7

Very cool little place with a great menu! I love their specials! You have to try any of their breakfast tacos. Soooo good! Just plan on having a wait for a table if you go during a peak time. Small place with limited seating but it's well worth it! Service is great too! Love this place!!

Review №8

Good Truckin' Diner is awesome! Now that Golden Harvest has been closed, I've been exploring more and found this great restaurant. Their breakfast is fantastic and their specials are so worth it for a Sunday brunch! Menu is extensive though so make sure you take a look at all your options

Review №9

First visit of many more to come. Excellent breakfast, friendly and efficient service, truly reasonable prices.

Review №10

Some of the best food I've ever had the privilege of tasting! The staff are all friendly and the atmosphere is fantastic. It's a small restaurant with limited seating so you may have to wait, but it's definitely worth it!

Review №11

Great trucking place. You can go there everyday if the year and order something different. Awesome food!! A+

Review №12

Great, funky gastro-diner. Lots of unique choices and you really can't go wrong with any of them. Word of caution: Like most hip eateries in Lansing proper, expect a long wait on the weekends. And sitting inside, you absolutely have to be okay with sitting on top of other people. The food is worth it, but I certainly wouldn't complain if they landed a slightly larger property.

Review №13

We found this place by chance driving through the area. I searched for "vegan" on Google Maps, and this place did NOT disappoint. Awesome service. Fantastic food. I can't wait to come back!

Review №14

The beer was good. Not a big selection. Bathrooms are clean and available. Service was polite and nice. Food took a while. I ordered a 9 oz. Steak with broccoli and mash potatoes. I received a hockey puck steak that was ok and was frozen ,yuck. My broccoli was florets which came out of a bag and my mash potatoes, serious came out a box with bag gravy. Overall, this place has potential, I just received the wrong end of their service.

Review №15

This is a great breakfast. I'm new to the area so I have eaten here two days in a row and have been satisfied greatly both days. You use your phone to look at the menu which I think is a cool idea because menus can carry germs. the first day I got a smoked pork and biscuits smothered in gravy and it was excellent. The second day I got a breakfast burrito and again very satisfied even had to take some home.being that is located only two blocks from my location I will definitely be returning again.

Review №16

Call at 2:30 close at 3 PM. They told us they were out of stuff but come on down. Had to take two cars got down here and walked in the door and were told that they closed early. We explain to them that we have called ahead and we were fine with them being out of some stuff. They told us to leave.Plenty of great food items to try in Lansing, we won't be back.

Review №17

Wonderful breakfast! Loved that the atmosphere is relaxed and fun but not so loud that we couldn't talk. The staff is fun and knows the menu inside and out. My brother had the bypass burrito and it was awesome. The trailer tots were a fantastic breakfast. Forgot to take pictures of the food so the coffee cup will have to do :) and this place definitely did make me smile :)

Review №18

Yep, this little gem is a place to come for breakfast. We found our breakfast joint when we come visit our son at MSU! These women outpace EVERY other breakfast offering in the Lansing area. Inventive, delicious, beautifully plated food and excellent service. It's difficult to describe the quality of the dishes served here. We are amazed each time we go.

Review №19

A really sweet little place in Lansing! I can only speak for the bypass, which I had in an omelette but which also comes in a burrito.But, since there are so many things involved in that particular dish I think I can say with some confidence that this place really knows how to cook.A finely chopped group of full y brown ingredients makes pretty much anything great and they have certainly done it with the bypass!

Review №20

Tiny little diner with unique food options. You will definitely have to wait especially on a weekend morning. There is indoor and outdoor dining. They have an extensive menu for breakfast and a large and cool street taco combinations. When I went they had a gluten free daily special of a banana waffle with coconut cream. They were nice and customized it for me with toppings from another menu item. How could you not add bourbon banana fosters to it?Their servings are large and filling and they have some really fun sandwich options and I drooled over the loaded fries.Everything is made from scratch and cooked right in front of you.When I return to Michigan this is definitely going to be one of my first places to hit for a sandwich to go and hit the river trail.One of the tastiest places I've ever been and a hidden gem.

Review №21

Can see why everyone raves about this place! Ordered lunch for work, pick up time was spot on, food was perfect and still hot. On top of all that,, the employees were SO friendly even with the added stress of COVID restrictions and they handled guests with ease. Can't wait to go back!

Review №22

Great food and service. Very small location and there is usually a wait but it is very worth it. I would highly recommend if you're in the area!

Review №23

This is one of the best places in Lansing to eat! The food is always great, the rotating daily menu means there's always something new to try, and the variety is excellent.The only thing to be aware of is that it is small in there, so if you're trying to go on the weekend be prepared to wait, especially if you have more than one person and it's winter time. It's worth it though, and nowhere near the levels of trying to get into Golden Harvest.

Review №24

Food was fantastic.... service was great. .Had brunch here based on reviews and was NOT disappointed!!!

Review №25

First experience here! My order was cooked fast, absolutely delicious and affordable! I got the Huevos Rancheros - Loved! Variety of menu items. All condiments and utensils offered and provided! Extra points for Chalula hot sauce! Lansing gem!

Review №26

Delicious good,amazing service by some friendly and beautiful women. The outside seating was nice and offered a fun view of the street and area. The food was a very good new take on traditional dinner grub. Had the Hillbilly fries - great taste and combination of food. Had the Roscoe (chicken and waffles and syrup breakfast burrito) and the Big country (traditional breakfast all in one burrito with sausage gravy). All delicious and tasty! Also the service was really really good!

Review №27

First time experience was terrible. I placed i a call in order and the waitress took my order incorrectly. When I got there they asked what I ordered. I ordered vegan Jamaican street taco. They cook made chicken tacos instead. Needless to say I took a few bites before I realized they messed up my order. They offered me free tacos. Thanks but no thanks. I will never waste another dime at this establishment. Vegans beware!

Review №28

As a vegetarian I highly recommend this diner! While at first sight one may think it's nothing but meaty diner food, the creative and large menu includes a TON of vegan and vegetarian options and the team cooking the fare are so accommodating of any substitutions need to be made. The staff are friendly and AWESOME and besides great options the food is incredible. Try Emily's STOOPID Sandwich with a veg patty, you're welcome.

Review №29

This place really comes through on flavor. I ordered on Doordash twice in 2 days. I'm making up for lost time I guess. I had an amazing breakfast burrito yesterday (the lonestar, my sis had the Roscoe), me and my bf had some street tacos today. Rosarita & baja were my favorites. I just wish I could get a second shell for the baja. Other than that pretty truckin' good.

Review №30

Not fancy on the inside but great food. Street tacos are excellent

Review №31

Food is amazing, just hope you don't get stuck at the counter. Very little leg room and the chairs are literally the most uncomfortable chairs I've ever sat in.

Review №32

Anytime i visit lansing, this will always be my choice for breakfast. There might be a wait, but the quality of service and the food is worth it!!!

Review №33

Amazing experience! Love it here already! These guys are creative with their menu, not your mom and dad's diner. Delicious options like Bourbon Street french toast and Fruity Pebbles milkshakes! Don't just look at the menu! Check out the specials of the day on the blackboard! Service was great! So many choices, not enough time! You'll want to go back again and again to eat your way through the entire menu. I know I'll be back! Update: 2 days later I had to return because I had to see Who framed Rodger Rabbit!! Can I just say that I love you guys?? Lock me up! Throw away the key! Those carrot pancakes were incredible! Absolutely loved the pistachio filling! It haunts me in my dreams ️ IG @withlovefrommiche Follow me for Michigan eats!

Review №34

Such a great little spot!! Food was top notch and creative with dazzling daily specials. The staff was friendly, happy, engaging and a delight to deal with. The atmosphere is eclectic and could occupy your attention if it wasn't for the food and staff. You could call it cozy if you had to be nice but otherwise it's just small. We had to wait for nearly 45 minutes but it was so absolutely worth the wait. The Good Truckin' dinner is on my list of must experience again restaurants!

Review №35

Definitely on the authentic side of the boarder, but the cereal shakes are to die for!YUMMY!

Review №36

Small eating area but food was very good. Also has good fast takeout service.

Review №37

Great little home cookin spot . cozy delious food. Highly recommended

Review №38

Good Truckin Diner is an awesome place to pick up some really unique menu items. Their burgers are great, their street tacos are great, and their breakfast items are second to none. They always find a way to mix flavors together to make something interesting and new, especially in their breakfast special items. Also, for a small diner with a lot of interest, I'm always impressed at how quickly and efficiently they seat and serve their guests.

Review №39

The best diner around! Great food and service, I strongly recommend!Masks and gloves worn by all the staff, very considerate, polite and safe.

Review №40

Overall breakfast was great. Not a huge fan of the homestyle fries, they are deep fried and not cooked on a griddle. So they were a bit hard and crunchy. The menu is very fun, creative, and overall eclectic. Other than the potatoes, our breakfast was spot on delicious. Good job Good Truckin"!

Review №41

The place was busy with carryout and I understand why. It took a while for the food, but it was busy and the waitress was attentive. Great, fresh food with huge portions.

Review №42

Definitely do not order a breakfast burrito from here! It was very very bland and overstuffed with beans... no flavor whatsoever! Will never buy food from here again.

Review №43

Doing great amongst pandemic. I love their tacos. Thw Waitstaff and cook are outstanding

Review №44

My friend and I love to try new establishment. I've been hearing good things about GTD and it's aboot time to try it. It was game day so we decided to beat the crowd. 8am, and we sat in the counter. She order game day special, shredded pork, tater tots, and all the good stuff. I ordered sweet potato waffles with cream cheese. We are not disappointed! It was good! Not to overwhelming and delicious. This place stick to basic and makes a delicious food out of it.

Review №45

Review №51

Yum! This place has amazing food! There was a little bit of a wait when we got there at 1130 on a weekday but the food was worth it! Really creative and different menu.

Review №54

Great diner for a Sunday morning brunch. Had the Bronuts to start then the Diesel and Garden Slayer breakfasts.

Review №55

Good food flavor on spot. Small diner but Dynamite comes in small packages. 2nd time back and once again awesome food I officially have my new breakfast spot. Been coming here for 2 years and they always knock it out the park

Review №56

I ordered, The hangover. As seen in the picture below. It was delicious and, cooked well. I would highly recommend Good truckin diner to anyone that loves great dinner food. Place is super small and gets crowded easy. If you don't like eating close to others this isn't the place for you. You can order take out, which is what I did and, the food is still delicious when you get it home or to work. Enjoy Michigan.

Review №57

Eccentric menu! So much fun. I had trick or treat pancakes, that moist pumpkin cakes with Capt Morgan cream, candied walnuts, whipped cream and white chocolate pumpkin. Comes with potatoes and choice of meat.The Kentucky fried breakfast had biscuits, hot chicken strips, pickles, 2 eggs, and pepper gravy.

Review №58

Great great place. Food was awesome.

Review №59

Great food for EVERYONE. (Vegan). I love that they have vegan options so I can go to a hometown diner with my family. The mushroom gravy is delicious and potatoes are done just great. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone, whether vegan or not they have great food, friendly staff and good coffee too.

Review №60

The food is delicious, the portions are huge, the prices are pretty cheap and the customer service rocks!

Review №61

Bourbon Street French Toast. Do I need to say more? No, but I will.Good Truckin' is small but mighty, and their menu is extensive. They have so many breakfast options - maybe even all the breakfast options that there are. And every single of them are amazing! I've never had food I don't like here, and when the weather is nice there is nothing like sitting on the patio in REO town eating delicious brunch.The staff is so nice and they remember frequent customers. It is always appreciated when we're greeted with a familiar hello!

Review №62

Two words: Breakfast Tacos!This place was so good we waited outside before being seated. It is worth the wait. The staff is friendly, and the food is delicious. Can't wait to stop in again.

Review №63

Amazing. Love the seating outside, and the food and staff never disappoint. Loved by locals and visitors.

Review №64

Good hole in the wall place. Fresh food, service just takes a little while.

I have eaten here twice now and the food is fantastic! It took quite awhile at lunch time so you might want to order ahead. Will be going back very soon!

Review №68

Delicious good,amazing service by some friendly and beautiful women. The outside seating was nice and offered a fun view of the street and area. The food was a very good new take on traditional dinner grub. Had the Hillbilly fries - great taste and combination of food.

Also the service was really really good!

Review №69

I'm sure I'm only saying what everyone else has said, but this is my favorite place to get breakfast in Lansing. You will almost certainly have to wait outside for at least a little bit, but the wait is worth it. The menu is great and there are always really cool specials to choose from as well. You can't go wrong here, but I advise not going in a group any larger than 4.

Review №70

A small place with great food and a cool atmosphere. I recommend trying one of their cereal shakes!

Review №71

I live out of state, but was visiting and picked this place after a quick Google search of the area. I was NOT disappointed! We ended up going twice in one weekend I got an omelet the first time & French toast the second time - both were mouthwatering level delicious! We're already talking about going back next time we're in town. There was a decent wait both times, but totally worth it!

Review №72

Review №87

The service was very good. The food was really good. Small place get there early for breakfast and lunch

Review №88

Really cool place with a great atmosphere. Service was terrific and the food was tasty. The dishes we got were traditional breakfast diner fare with their own slightly unique and modern twist. And the cereal shakes! How could you not love those. I definitely recommend stopping in and plan to be back.

I met a friend for breakfast early on Tuesday 9/24/19. The diner is rather small, but was able to be seated right away. I had the Mona Omelette and it was delicious. Service was great and my breakfast came quickly. I plan on eating here again.

Review №93

Great breakfast and lunch joint. Amazing twists on diner classics.

Review №94

If you live in Michigan, are traveling through Michigan, or have even just heard of the state of Michigan.. YOU NEED TO EAT HERE! I'm not one to "speak" in capitals but I need to emphasize the point that if you are anywhere in North America and you haven't had the chance to dine in this gold mine of a diner YOU ARE MISSING OUT! Easily some of the highest quality and most delicious food I've ever had in my life, literally order anything and it will be your new favorite, and then try something else and that will be your new favorite and the cycle continues.. This is the place you've been looking for, trust me, don't think twice, just show up bring your appetite and enjoy! Seriously. Don't. Wait.

Review №95

This is my go-to breakfast/lunch spot when I'm in East Lansing. I've always had a great meal here but note that the restaurant is small so there is often a wait for a table or spot at the counter. It's worth the wait, though!

Review №96

Small place, be prepared to wait outside but the food is fresh, creative and worth the wait!!! Make sure to poke your head in and give your name and party size.Kids and adults enjoyed the food very much. The kitchen is open so you can watch the well tuned collaboration of the staff.

Review №97

Very unique artisanal breakfast creations! Teeny tiny restaurant so you might have to wait but it will be worth it. Service is lovely as well.

Review №98

Awesome breakfast and great coffee!

Review №99

Awesome food. Waitress was very nice and accommodating. Got the angry troll w/o the egg. Not as spicy as i wanted but still a really good burger. Check out the eggrolls.

Review №100

A wonderful little "hole-in-the-wall" diner! Not much seating, though they do have indoor and outdoor options. The service was good, and the food was excellent. The pricing was reasonable; $8-10/dish for breakfast food, and the value was great considering the large portion sizes. You will leave satisfied, and I highly recommend this restaurant.
