Blimpy Burger is temporarily closing due to filming on Tuesday

ANN ARBOR, me. – On Tuesday, Ann Arbor’s popular Krazy Jim’s Blimpy Burger was closed to customers while the cameras were rolling.

The city darling will reportedly be performing again on the Food Network’s popular “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” show.

“Sorry for the inconvenience and we will report soon when you can see us on TV,” said the restaurant in a Facebook post that has since been deleted.

Blimpy Burger was founded in 1953 by Jim Schafer on South Division Street and then changed hands in 1993. Owned by Rich Magner, who worked at the Custom Burger Joint while studying, the establishment moved to its current location on South Ashley Street in 2012.

Blimpy Burger first appeared on the Food Network in 2008. It also appeared on the Big 10 Network, Travel Channel, and various news channels in southeast Michigan, including Local 4.


At the beginning of the year, the voice of the A4 readers secured him a place in our A4 top 10 list. It was also Ann Arbor’s most voted restaurant in the BBQ & Burgers category.

The popular eatery in the city center is open on Wednesday, October 6th, during normal opening times.
