Went there with some family and friends for my birthday. Great food! Their elk burger it to die for! Also, all their ice cream is made in house. I have been there several times and even though the service is sometimes slow, the food is worth waiting for.

My daughter really did want to try the "Big Ugly" challenge until we showed her just how big it was. We sat on the back patio and they made every accommodation to help get her situated with an extra chair so she could keep her leg elevated which earned big points in my book! (she tore her MCL at a... More

Went to Bub's with a group of friends. Three of the five of the attendees had not been there before. The wings are some if the best in town, the elk burgers were cooked perfectly and the service was outstanding. Burgers are great here, but if you like wings, these are hard to beat!

The burgers are good, but the wings are fantastic! They are crispy, spicy fried chicken, no sauce. Amazing! The sweet potato fries with marshmallow dipping sauce....or anything with that sauce: yummo! I would give this place a 5 if it weren't for the consistently long wait for the food, pretty much every time I've been, regardless of the crowd.

I saw the rating, all the good press, so I went. Burger - Cooked as I ordered, which was medium rare and I was happy with that. Half a pound and a bit on the flat side, but flavorful. The server didn't tell me what the non-menu toppings were that day, so all I got was cheese and the ones... More

Within walking distance of Indiana University, Bub's is a comfortable burger and ice cream establishment. Each table has a box of conversation starters (ex: List the following in order of speed: Jaguar XKE, Jaguar, Peregrine Falcon, etc.) The menu features three sizes of Elk Burgers. The walls of the restaurant are completely covered with snapshots of those patrons who have... More

My husband and another couple went to Bub's just so that the two men could get their pictures on the wall for eating "The Big Ugly", which they did and are now proudly hanging on the wall. However, what really surprised me was the flavor. I had the quarter pounder, and both burgers, even with the difference in size were... More

Bub’s knows how to serve truly great burgers. It lives up to its reputation. I find it difficult to comprehend how anyone could conclude that these burgers are anything but among the best served anywhere. I’m deadly serious about my burgers. Bub’s cheeseburger, prepared as I ordered it, ranks in the top five percent of the best burgers consumed in... More
