    My fave is a plain double with pickles and maybe sometimes mushrooms. And you HAVE to get the onion rings, which are more like strings and delicious. Bummed that they're moving locations.

    Eat anything there. It is all great. Just make sure you have some time set aside for afterwards. The food coma will hit you.

    You have to get the onion rings or anything deep fried! It is a must.

    Onion Rings or Mixed Veggies rather than Fries. Every time.

    Make sure you get your fill of Blimpy because their lease expires 8/31/2013.

    Anything short of a quad and you're ripping yourself off. Double-cheese highly recommended!

    Get a Quad with cheddar cheese, green olives, banana peppers, and pickles. It's the best burger on the U of M campus. The rules while waiting in line- No cell phones, no sitting, and no credit cards.

    Try the Blimpy Burger which was recommended by "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" as well as Zagat in their article "10 Patties Worth a Trip": Read more

    Somehow getting anything less than a quad with cheese feels like you're cheating yourself. Pro tip: getting a quad with cheese will take 7 years off your life.

    Patties are small but you get a side of added sass. If you want to be a bit more adventurous, have your burger on an onion roll.

    Gotta get at least a triple and if not a quad. the patties are small. Check the website out so you know how to order. You will wait in line, it will be worth it.

    Blimpy serves up several kinds of fried vegetables, including mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini. As seen on Man v Food: Ann Arbor.

    I love everything about this place. Get at *least* a quad if you wanna fill up. Their onion rings are great and they make my favorite burger in Ann Arbor, if not the whole world!

    Be ready to order or be abused. First it's whether you want anything from the deep fryer, then how many patties and bun, then cheese, then other stuff. Or something like that. Awesome!

    Order a burger with blue cheese and bacon and grab a bottle of steak sauce while in line. Pour a generous helping of steak sauce on the bun, and you'll have a righteous combo!
