These are the places with fiercely loyal followings – be that due to awards and accolades or word of mouth – that you simply shouldn’t miss out on visiting. From historic spots to high-end haunts, and diners that have made their way onto the small screen to pizzerias that have inspired movies, we've found the best cult-favorite restaurant in every state and DC.
Lovefood's selections are based on genuine user user reviews, awards and accolades, and the first-hand experience of their team.
Their pick for top cult-favorite restaurant in Michigan is truly iconic in Grand Rapids: Yesterdog.
Located in Eastown, Yesterdog has been serving up legendary hot dogs since 1976 when a man named Bill Lewis decided he could build a better hot dog.
According to Yesterdog's website, the hot dog joint has won Grand Rapids Magazine’s Best Hotdog category every year since 1991, the year hotdogs were included in the poll.
Here's Lovefood's praise for Yesterdog,
Since 1976, this iconic Michigan staple has been selling great hot dogs to the people of Grand Rapids. Its retro-style interior (vintage posters, hand-crank cash register, antique jukebox) inspired the fictional hot dog joint in 1999’s American Pie (dubbed 'Dog Years'), but that’s not the only reason people love this place. Pure and simple, Yesterdog serves delicious hot dogs that are not only piled high with toppings and delightfully messy to eat, but are cheap, too.
