I went to the Lansing Fleetwood with some co-workers. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, the relatively low-cost, and the quick service.
Finding the Fleetwood isn't necessarily an easy task for someone not familar with the area (a bit outside of downtown), but it is well worth it. The Fleetwood in Lansing is modeled on an old "diner" concept (coming from the northeast, I find it too bad that the old "diner" concept isn't found around here; I guess the substitute is a "Coney" place!!). This establishment did a decent job, with a very diner-like exterior, a small lunch/breakfast counter, a walk-up register, and a spattering of tables with booths along the exterior walls.
The menu was fairly extensive. I went with a burger (the "Philly burger", which included bacon with sauteed onions, peppers and mushrooms). The burger was excellent, with obviously freshly-formed patties (doesn't appeared to be pre-formed food service patties here!!!), and at 1/3 pound, fitting nicely on the kaiser bun. A side of fries was easily split amongst myself and my two co-workers. The co-workers each got a different burger, and all very much enjoyed it. One of the very interesting options is that burgers can be "1/2 and 1/2"; made up of 1/2 ground beef, and 1/2 ground bacon. I tried a small piece of this from a co-worker, and it was very good...a bit different, but wonderfully flavored.
Then the most pleasant surprise of all...the bill! The burgers were decently priced (about $6 or $6.50 loaded, and $5 for a "basic" cheesburger). The side of fries was moderately priced, but a very large serving.
Service as also very quick, and the servers friendly.
As an FYI, other nearby diners had ordered breakfast during the lunch time period, and the plates were LOADED with food!! I'd be back easily to try something else off of the menu, or some breakfast.
