I lived near East Lansing, they mostly have shit pizza and shit grinders (and shit bagels, shit breakfast sandwiches, a surprisingly low number of diners, etc.).

I remember finding a place near the MSU campus that had "Greek pizza" and it turned out to be awful. Some of the worst pizza I've ever eaten from a pizza place.

Without realizing ahead of time because the menu wasn't descriptive, I ordered a chicken parm grinder made with grilled chicken. It's like they were trying to make bad food.

It was a very bland, gray, rusted out, dull, Midwestern-in-the-worst-way kind of place overall. It makes me thankful CT and New England were overall smart and capable enough to do better in a post-industrial economy.

There was a great old-school fast food burger place and one great diner-type breakfast place in Lansing, to be fair.

The Greek pizza you’re talking about is almost definitely “Bell’s” that the guy in the pic is talking about lmao. Both are bad, and I think the Greek one is only in business because it’s one of a few things open at 3am near to MSU

Oh wow I didn't make that connection, but I just checked the map on Bell's and you're totally right. I remember being all excited seeing terms like "grinder" and "house of pizza" there and then being extremely let down by the food.
