Hot, greasy, delicious burgers! There are some ordering rules that you catch onto quickly, and your burgers are cooked right in front of you. Worth the time off the beaten path if you have the time.

You really have to stop and get a burger here. We've taken family who were just blown away by the fresh meat they have. Plenty of good options for toppings and some tasty sides.

Love the fact the cook interrogates you! LOL, great burgers made freshly with your choice of cheeses and condiments. This joint was featured on food networks Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. If you're in the Ann Arbor area it's a must stop! Prices are decent.

Great burgers. But their veggies are amazing. If you are looking for healthy food, probably not the place for you. Otherwise a BIG thumbs up!

Good food and fun times. Deep fry cook is a hoot. Fries were also good. Can get pretty much any style burger. Loved it.

The burgers are delicious as well as the sides. I personally love the fried cauliflower. WARNING: they may yell at you for not answering their questions so keep an open ear and listen carefully.

Full disclosure: I used to live in Ann Arbor, and went to Krazy Jim's often. These days I have to get my fix less frequently unfortunately. Krazy Jim's is an Ann Arbor institution. While it can get pretty crowded on football Saturdays, I've observed that there are always empty seats when needed. I don't know how it happens, maybe the... More

We wanted to go here because it was featured on Diners, Drive ins & Dives. We were in town for a Uof M football game and thought it would be a good time to try out Krazy Jim's. We waited in line for over 45 minutes before we could order our food. We both ordered the 2 patty burger. I... More

Had a great triple burger with fun toppings and possibly the best onion rings I have had in years. Reasonably priced for a tasty and fast meal!
