Return to Blimpy Burger

For the longest time, Blimpy Burger used to be a staple on the corner of Packard and Division in Ann Arbor.  They've been there for as long as I can remember.  Some time last year, the people who owned that landed decided to sell it to the University so that they can build a new dorm or something.  Since Blimpy didn't have a place to move to, they closed on August 13, 2013.
 Recently I found out that they re-opened at a new location.  I really haven't had a chance to check it out until tonight.  I found out that they are right next door to the Fleetwood Diner.
 It looks like they moved much of the old decor into their new place.  It also looks like they have a little more space for the dining room.
 A cool neon sign.

 One thing you need to know about Blimpy Burger is that there is a certain way to order your food.  If you don't, you may get a talking to by the staff.  It's really not that complicated though.
 When they were at the other location, they used to have snow sculptures in the front.
 It looks like they brought the same grill over which was pretty cool.
 For dinner, I got some onion rings and a burger.  The burger was on an onion roll with mayo, cheese, lettuce, tomato and grilled onions.  It was pretty good.

That is a great burger place. I am glad to see that they are still in business.
