Great Turnstiles Grand Rapids Appetizers

It’s safe to say that Turnstiles have their fair share of appetizers that you can split with a friend. The American style but unique flavor of their shareables is just delicious, and there are many selections. Their Chicken and Steak nachos melt in your mouth, the Fried Pickle Chips are how you know you’re getting real Michigan food, and the Waffle Fries and Bosco sticks are amazing. They also have Fried Wings, Buffalo Cauliflower, and House-made tortilla chips for sides.

At Turnstiles you can get some crazy loaded salads that come with waffle fries depending on the plate. We recommend trying the Full Chub or Cajun Chicken Chop while you’re over there.

Turnstiles Grand Rapids Entrees

What makes Turnstiles so great is that you have so many main platter options. You can grab large entrees, handheld sandwiches, and their unique burgers. In the large platter section, you can get tacos with chorizo sauce, chicken, and a choice between a friend or seasoned sweet potato. You can grab two different loaded Mac N’ Cheese options with all sorts of toppings such as bacon, red onions, diced tomatoes, and their special cheese sauce. They also have a Texas-style plate with chicken breast, bacon, waffle fries, cheese sauce, and much more. 

Their handheld sandwiches each have their unique cheeses and sauces, and they come with a side of fries and pickle slices. You won’t be disappointed by the seven signature handhelds that turnstiles offer. Continuing customers recommend trying the Three Alarm Chicken Sandwich, Dirty West Devil Sammy, and Georgia Reuben. 

Lastly, they have eight unique burger options you can choose from. You can get two 4oz patties and one of their signature burger options. These burgers are so good they’ll have you craving them after your first visit. Our personal favorites are the Elote Burger, Cowboys From Hell Burger, Double or Nothing burger! They also have a vegan option called The Veggie Burger, where it has one 4oz black bean sweet potato patty, lettuce, tomato, onion, and vegan mayo on a vegan bun.
