Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger [Ann Arbor, MI]

Hey Hounds

So Mrs. Sippi and I saw Krazy Jim's place on 3D a while back and decided that since AA isn't too far off our intended route, we'd pay a visit.

Boy were we ever glad we did. This is exactly the type of place I'd love to see here in TO. Fresh ground beef done on a flat top and sold cheaply.

The ordering process isn't all that elaborate but you'd best make sure you brush up. They helped most people out pretty well. I was told the guys who work on the weekend can really get on you but these guys were pretty casual.

Anyway, I did a blog entry about this place. You can read it here.

Hope you like it.

  1. Hey brother, how long was ze drive from T.O.?

    Enjoyed your blog posting... why didn't they put cheese on that girl's burger? You can build your own there, no? Seems odd.

      She probably was telling the wrong person that she wanted cheese. They have an ordering system that gets you through the line quickly. At busy times, the line can be out the door and into the street. Each person doing cooking has a specific job, and needs to know about specific parts of your order. When they want to know about the cheese, they'll ask. Tell them something that they don't need to know, and you'll hear about it.

          Hey Magic.

          It's about 5 hours or so. Line ups at the boarder can slow things down and right now (And for the next number of years) if you go through Detroit the construction can be a bit of a booger so it's best to go through Sarnia.

          As was pointed out, the guy was the condiment guy. The grill guy is the cheese guy. I ordered cheese and bacon right away and he stopped me and told me all he needed to know then was how many patties. When he was ready, he asked.

            I'd probably go through Sarnia anyways (if/when I do go). Not a bad drive at all really. Thanks for all the info!
