I can't help but laugh. Actually, I had to stifle my laughter while waiting for my burger. This place is famous for its attitude and -- seeing as it's lasted so long in AA -- there's a certain charm to the experience. But know what you're getting into.

Visiting Blimpy Burger when in town on business and really enjoyed everything about the place. Great atmosphere and even better food. Good size portions of fries and great drink selections.

This place is the model of inefficiency. There were maybe 15 people in line in front of me, at 1:30 on a Wednesday, I waited for over twenty minutes, then gave up as only one person had been served. If you like long lines and long wait times for no apparent reason, this is the place for you.

It's the sort of place you discover when you are in college, and take your children to when you're feeling nostalgic. Just make sure to order properly 😉

We were in town with friends and decided to try this place. First of there are rules here and you must line up. I was with a person in a wheel chair who couldn't line up and when I started my ordering with fried foods, I was asked if i was ordering for two, I said yes then I was... More

Grabbed a quick burger here while spending a night in Ann Arbor. For a cheap, fast-food style burger it’s better than average. This is NOT a gourmet burger and it isn't trying to be. The meat is flavorful and juicy, while the myriad combinations of bread and toppings allow you to create exactly what you want. The line moved somewhat... More

I love Blimpy Burger and although the new location doesn't have the same dumpy-diner charm, the food and the service are still the same (thankfully). I still appreciate "the rules" and enjoy dining there with my kids. They love it and I think although they get yelled at sometimes by the line cooks, they secretly enjoy the forced independence required... More

This is a very good example of comfort food that is well designed for late-night, and well positioned in a big college town. The super skinny burger patties get stacked high, I had a 4-stack, I think you could stack 10 high. The French fries and onion rings are cooked to order and the toppings and cheeses are plentiful.

food is great. The burgers are very good. Love that you can order the way you want it. Atmosphere lacks but is ok. But you come here for the burger. Steak fries are excellent also. This is the place for a burger in A2
