Whenever you go to Halo Burger, don’t forget to order a Boston Cooler made with Vernors and vanilla ice cream. Yum! Halo Burger was recently voted Michigan’s #1 hamburger. So whenever you visit the Flint area, stop and eat at Halo Burger.

Flint, Michigan

Flint is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan and is located along the Flint River, 66 miles northwest of Detroit. As of the 2000 census, the city had a population of 124,943, making it the fifth largest city in Michigan. It is the county seat of Genesee County, which lies in the Flint/Tri-Cities region of Michigan. Genesee County is also the entirety of Flint's metropolitan area, the fourth largest metropolitan area in Michigan. Flint is the largest city in the United States with a one-syllable name. Flint is most known for being the birthplace of the General Motors Corporation, and the Flint Sit-Down Strike of 1936-37 that played a vital role in the formation of the United Auto Workers. It has also become a symbol of the decline in the auto industry - Flint area native Michael Moore's 1989 documentary film Roger & Me deals with the impact that the closure of several General Motors manufacturing plants in the late 1980s had on Flint's population.
