We saw this place on DDD and thought we would have to stop by. They are very specific about the process by which you order your food, but fortunately they were patient with us rookies. We probably waited in line for almost 20 minutes, but it was worth it. The burgers were delicious as were the onion rings. At one... More

We went at lunch time and had no queue, but individual service takes time to secure an excellent burger. We had a wonderful experience. Good value too. No tip was required but I left one for the quality of food and service.

My wife and I went here for lunch. We saw that it was on Man Vs Food and had to stop in. We waited in line for 30 minutes, and we were finished eating in approx. 4 minutes. The burgers are PAPER THIN, the sign says 10 patties equals 1 pound. I got a double and my wife got a... More

You order fast-food style but this is no fast-food place. Everything is made to order so be prepared to wait. Lots of choices for toppings, some come with, others are an upcharge. CAUTION: Don't order a large order of fries unless you're REALLY hungry. My wife and I split and order (we both love fries), and a friend had a... More

I had 5 patties which made it about 1/2 pound. It was a tasty, greasy burger but wouldn't compete with a really good burger.

One of our families favorite downtown Ann Arbor hangouts is Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger (recently moved to 304 S. Ashley). If you’re heading there, though, give yourself some extra time especially if you plan on hitting normal dining hours. Everything is made to order so it’s fresh but can take a while before you order and get your food -... More

The burgers are great and you get to load them with a bunch of options. The staff has their own way of thinking in which can scare some people a bit, but it is all in fun. My dad warned me about this a few years back...they may harass you if you don't know what you are doing. Nonetheless, they... More

To the cook in the camo hat working tonight: You ruined our visit at this restaurant. Regardless of how good the food is I will NEVER return because not only did you provide the worst customer service experience you also provided me with the rudest interaction with a human I have ever experienced . Yelling at us/ the customers around... More

My Fiance and I saw Krazy Jim's on Diners Drive ins and Dives prior to our trip to Michigan so naturally it made the to- do list. The line was pretty long for 1. We waited for about 20 minutes before we got to order but the food was worth the wait. This was by far one of the best... More

As long as you're down with grease, you can't beat Blimpy Burgers cheeseburgers. They are the tastiest. You can get them with any number of patties, a variety of cheeses and buns, and many assorted condiments. I like mine straight up. Also love the deep fried battered vegetables.
