There are lots of great things about living in Michigan, and one of them is access to incredible food. I personally think Michigan has some of the best restaurants you’ll find anywhere. We here in Michigan simply pride ourselves on having great food. Now, there’s a study to back up the fact that, yes, Michigan food rocks.

Yelp has put together its list of the Top 100 Restaurants in America in 2022, and three Michigan spots made the cut. “Whether dining indoors, lunching on a breezy patio, ordering takeout, or getting delivery, our hungry community has been enjoying fantastic meals in every corner of the U.S.,” they state in the study. To come up with the tally, Yelp “first reached out to Yelpers for their favorite dining spots. Then, we ranked each by total number of submissions, ratings, reviews, and geographic representation, among other factors.”

So, what Michigan restaurants are inside the top 100 in the U.S.? Coming in at No. 59 is Bistro Bella Vita in Grand Rapids, which Yelp says is known for “favorites” such as “homemade pasta, brick-oven pizzas, rotisserie-roasted meats, and freshly prepared tiramisu.” Sounds delicious.

Also on the list is Grey Ghost Detroit in Detroit at No. 62, which Yelp says is known for its “fried bologna, featuring a potato waffle, cream cheese, and jalapeño,” which “is an unexpected treat.” Yelp adds that, “Folks also love their cheeseburger and fries with “fancy sauce.'” Finally, JT’s Pizza & Spirits in Grand Rapids made it at No. 92 on the list, thanks to its “deluxe pizza with three kinds of meat and the CLT topped with chicken breast and garlic aioli.” All of those restaurants sound tasty.
