Great Plains Burger Co.
1771 Plymouth Rd.
Ann Arbor, MI 48105
One of my favorite places to get a hamburger is Great Plains Burger Co. in Ann Arbor. It’s one of those places that specializes in making hamburgers and does it extremely well. You place your order at the counter, and they cook patties as you order, so they are fast, fresh and hot when you get them. You have a choice between beef, turkey and black bean. I have had both the beef and the turkey, and either one is grilled to juicy perfection. I like that they give me the healthy options, since I need to be eating healthy, or at least healthier. The buns come from a local Detroit bakery, and are the perfect top and bottom to the patty of your choice. They also have a plethora of toppings to choose from, and you can build your perfect burger.
I think my absolute favorite thing about Great Plains Burger Co, are the unique sauces in the pump thingy over by the fountain pop machine. They have Kentucky bourbon, white BBQ, G. P. Bistro sauce and Caribbean jerk. I wish they would bottle them and sell them but I guess I will just have to keep going back to enjoy them.
They also make some delicious French fries too. Cut from fresh real potatoes and even sweet potatoes. They are the perfect sidekick for the awesome Burger, and they give you plenty of them. My family of four splits a basket of fries. Oh and did I mention the unique Great Plains special sauces, they are great for dipping you fresh made fries into.
For the trifecta of flavor to go along with your burger and fries, they make hand dipped shakes with the milk and ice cream coming from a local dairy. It’s nice to go somewhere and watch someone make a shake and not just stick a cup under a machine and pull a handle to have some brown stuff ooze out of it.
It’s a little ways out of downtown A2, but it’s not to far from us23 and you can take the Plymouth road exit and head west a few miles to get to it quickly so I like to stop there when I am headed along 23 near Ann Arbor.
