OT - Best Place for Burgers On Campus

Submitted by You Only Live Twice on October 23rd, 2015 at 2:33 PM

With this being a bye week, hopefully OK time for this thread.

Looking to get some MGo opinions on the best places, walkable from Central campus, to get a good burger.  Blimpy Burgers was a top contender, but it's been so many years since I've had lunch there, that when asked that question, I couldn't credibly give any advice. 

Any suggestions that are more useful than my "Well a long time ago, the place to go was Blimpy Burgers?"

I'm not at all trying to be douchey, I promise...

I think I may recall a thread being done about this sometime in the recent past.  It's been a few years since I've been able to make it back to Ann Arbor, so I can't help you much on my own.

I moved from the area. NYC has a lot to offer food wise....

I often dream of Crazy Jim's Blimpie. Great burger. Service reminds me of Pat's and Genos Steaks in Philly.

I agree that Blimpie is over rated. Honestly I wouldn't even put them in my top 5 burgers for the downtown area of Ann Arbor. I've had it twice since they re-opened, and both times was served a very bland tasting burger that ended up giving me a stomach ache. The fries weren't seasoned (not even salt). Some people say they like it is because of nostalgia, but it's not even in the same location, and doesn't have the same workers that used to work there for years. If you want to eat a greasy, bland burger because the name bring good memories, then go ahead. I will pass.  

Best burger in town is hands down Frita's. Also if you want  a good burger and a craft beer I would go to hopcat. Their burger was surprisingly good and I love the crack fries.
