Sampling the best burgers in Washtenaw County
A record number of votes were entered in the current edition of Michigan's Best, in which MLive statewide entertainment reporter John Gonzalez is hunting for which restaurant serves up the best burger.
Longtime area favorite Sidetrack Bar and Grill took the top spot in our local poll, while recent newcomer to the dining scene The Wurst Bar managed to edge out Casey's Tavern for third, giving Ypsilanti two of the top three spots.
Of course, no discussion about hamburgers in the Ann Arbor area would be complete without mention of Blimpy Burger, which took home second place and is where we will begin our journey on today's sampling. Here's our approximate schedule:
- 11:30-12:30 p.m. Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger - 551 S Division St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
- 1-2 p.m. Sidetrack Bar & Grill - 56 E Cross St, Ypsilanti, MI 48198
- 2:15-3:15 p.m. The Wurst Bar - 705 W Cross St, Ypsilanti, MI 48197
