After the University bought the land under their old place and tore it down along with other buildings to erect the Graduate Students Dormitory, the owner, Rick Magner, had to find a new location. It took a long time and he wound up moving far...More

The staff are extremely rude, they make you feel as though they are doing you a favour and we're pushing you to add more ingredients. The Burger is not worth the money they charge. Frita is a much much better option.

Not that familiar with Ann Arbor so cannot say where free parking would be so recommend using a map tool to find where public parking might be and then see if it is free. We parked on the street just down the block and had... More
