Ann Arbor: Blimpy Burger closing?
Is it true that the University has bought the Blimpy Burger building & they are shutting down? (And if this is true, why did I learn so via the New York Times?)
In these times of gourmet burgers, maybe the quality ain't top-notch, but Blimpys has always been tasty and a true dining experience.
Yep, definitely true. However, just talked to the manager, and he is very confident they'll find another spot around campus and re-open on a relatively speedy schedule. He basically said that they outgrew their location years ago, but obviously kept on there, being an institution and all. As for the quality, they grind their meat fresh daily, which is more than I can say for some other burger joints around town.
Hopefully maybe somewhere with a bit better parking this time too. Also it would be fantastic if they could find a credit card machine in the new place as well.
