We posted the news last year that Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger of Ann Arbor, MI (see the review) was going to have to close or move in 2013 because the university bought the property upon which the business sits. One thing has been settled: they will move, not close, and that is good news. Owner Rich Magner has definitively said that closing is not an option, even if he wins the lottery. He's still looking for a location downtown, near the campus. His lease expires in August.



That's great news. Awesome burgers. Back in the day we lived on places like Krazy Jim's, Pizza Bob's, and the Fleetwood. The Fleetwood was another place that was under the gun ... the city didn't want a diner in a 1950's double-wide trailer anymore but the townsfolk showed up with pitchforks and torches and the Fleetwood was saved. Krazy Jims is an institution. Can't wait to visit again some time when I'm in town.

They have one of my top 3 burgers anywhere. Absolutely fantastic. I just hope they don't lose their charm in a new location. DT
