Good burger & quirky staff

Before ordering we made sure to familiarize ourselves with how to order from signs on the wall . "Just answer the questions as the cook asks them" then wait. Burger was really good because it was made to order while we stood there and watched the cook do most everything. Seems inefficient but their... read more

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

I love blimpy burgers. I went for the first time two years ago, and it's a must visit every time I'm in Michigan! The burgers start at a double patty and go up to a quint. Just make sure you order correctly or be prepared for a scoulding from the cook. Great fun, amazing burgers and cheap prices!

You thoroughly experience your food here. You witness it hit the grill or fryer and by the time you take your first bite you're totally engaged. The onion rings are light, perfectly crisped and plentiful The large order is perfect for two people. The burger patties are 1/10 of a pound each so a triple or a quad works very... More

A little hazy on the ordering? No worries, these guys will ask all the right questions in order to get you the best burger EVER! The cooks have attitude but it is all part of this unique experience. The decor is diner-style, nothing fancy. Can be noisy but is also fun AND a good burger. Get there early because the... More

Went to the new location for the first time. Still the best burger in town! They were slower than usual, and by the time I got my burger and paid, my onion rings were cold! Been eating here for 40 years!! And I'll be back...

Visited Krazy Jim's with my two college age kids. Staff were friendly but slow. Line was short but it took about 20 minutes just to watch our burgers grilled. Cook couldn't handle more than one or two orders at a time. It was good, average portion, nothing outstanding about the onion rings, fries or burgers. Add parking charges to our... More

We went to lunch her the other day and we were not disappointed! Everyone in Ann Arbor raves about Blimpy Burger so naturally we had to see what it was all about. You get to order your food in a line and they cook it right in front of you which I thought was really neat. We ordered a large... More

Not much atmosphere unless you count the extreme surly cook. The guy was downright nasty! Food was mediocre and the atmosphere was nothing to comment about- just generic. I won't be back.
