Holy crow! Magus is a cutie! Thanks annarborfoodie, for that pic! :wub:

But my favourite picture is this one

gallery_19027_5280_585440.jpg

Not just because the burger looks awesome, but because of that clenched hand in the background. My first thought was that it was clenched with excitement...like "Hurry up and take the picture! I want my d*** burger!"

Then I realized it might have been a bit cold that day... :biggrin:

Your first instinct was right. DH was a little impatient with my picture taking :biggrin:

Oh my...that picture. The craving that hit elicited a physiological reaction in me....my stomach literally started growling. :laugh:

Congratulations Magus- I wish you continued success, and hope to make it someday to experience that burger in person!

Edited 'cause my submission finger was trigger happy.

Thanks to annarborfoodie for pointing me this way - man, that looks like a great burger!  Magus - what's the best time for a townie who just wants a burger to hit your stand and minimize being caught up in game traffic?

Well...this weekend...the game is at 3:30pm... we will be ready to serve by 9:00-9:30. Serving "breakfast burgers" :raz: So I would say around 10:00-11:00 would be a great time.

Also...I thought about the website and what I would be using it for...it wont fit my plan. My plan is to keep in touch with my customers and to get feedback from them so I am going to be starting a blog. This will give customers a way to give feedback. Things that we do great...and things that we can improve on.

If you do get a website/blog, make sure you put directions to your burger joint on it, or a hot link to GoogleMaps of your location(s). People have to be able to find you and that incredible looking burger!

:raz: Well...it has been a LOOOOONG DAY!!

I was a rainy, windy, bone chilling, wet, messy event. BUT...I managed to take some pictures.

This burger...is what I call ...the BIG 9

gallery_20145_5329_65481.jpg

This was the first time that "I" have taken pictures of my own food...so please excuse me.

gallery_20145_5329_66.jpg

This is the same BIG 9 just from different view ponts.

Oh...one thing I found out...once you start flashing bacon...you better make sure you have enough to go around.

I told one of my friends about the burgers at the Purdue game and she stopped on her way home, and you were sold out. So yesterday she wanted to be sure she got one, so she drove there at 9:30 (she was the blonde in the car with her husband who had a printout from the web site). She is a nutritionist and does not eat junk food, but she was raving about the bacon burger. She called me at 9:30 this morning to report back!

Darn, Darn! I was just up yesterday hanging out while my husband went to the game but I just found this thread TODAY and was up for two other games. That's 3 missed opportunities!

I've been desperately looking for good burgers since moving back to MI earlier this year.

Keep us posted- Sounds and looks great.

Just had to add how excited I am - I might even have to get up early and come up in the cold before the Ohio State game now. :biggrin:

Yes...They used the "drive thru" :biggrin: LMAO...They were such nice people. I'm glad I was able to talk her into the Big 9! Im glad they both enjoyed them.

Just came back to edit my post but you caught me! I don't know where "Notre Dame" came from, LOL. You should put Ann Arbor in the title of this thread if you can still edit it.

I am always interested in the burger threads :) but was pleasantly surprised to find out it was a Michigan venture.

I have had this feeling since last week that this thing is becomming bigger than me...it feels...I dont know...cant put my finger on it. :huh:

Big? :biggrin:

If you build it, they will come. Just make sure you have a lot of good staff on hand. A friend of mine is expanding her already very busy restaurant, but she has problems with staffing even now, so I am really worried about what will happen when her new place opens.

I'm really bummed that I no longer have friends in Ann Arbor. I have to think of a good reason to go there! Maybe I can do it as a day trip from Chicago--all the way to Ann Arbor just to eat a bacon burger!

I guess it feels like this thing is beginning to take on a life of its own... :huh:

If I could send you a burger through the mail, I would :wink:

Kudos on getting your blog/website up and running. Those screen shots of the Big 9 are great, no need to apologize for your photography. Magus, since you're blowing up big time, maybe it's time to consider an east coast location--DC/northern Virginia PULEEZE. :smile: I could really use a Big 9 with a chocolate malted, if you do those, about right now. Why? Easy: New England Patriots - 52, Redskins - 7. :shock: Oh the humanity................ :sad:

Inside me there is a thin woman screaming to get out, but I can usually keep the Bitch quiet: with CHOCOLATE!!!

Simply stunning. That, my friend, is a thing of beauty.

It's enough to bring a tear of joy (and hunger) to my eyes.

Another drive thru user here. I was going to go down early before traffic got insane, but that plan fell apart. But I braved the game day traffic anyway and called my order out the window of my car. I was worried about tying up traffic, so I drove around the block and came back for a pickup.

Mighty fine burger. Mighty fine. Although i wanted some lettuce, tomato and mayo. That would have made it perfect. I was going to eat half and save the other for hubby, but somehow it didn't make it back to the house...

When's the next game? I need my fix...

:biggrin: Thank You!

The next game is 11/17/07 at high noon. We will be out there early...about 8:30-9:00. We are saving the Let, tom and Mayo for the establishment.

I think you were the young lady that orderd the kosher frankfurter as well. I would love to earn a spot on your food blog so I will keep working at it :biggrin:
