One of the Best Burgers You can find.

One of the Best Burgers You can find. Service excellent. Oh, and you can get a burger as big as a dinner plate if you are really hungry. We had the elk burgers and they were great. The ice cream is excellent too. It is downtown near just about everything, yet off the beaten path.

Went for lunch today, our first visit to Bubs, it wasnt too busy so we were seated and served quickly. Our server seemed to be in a bit of a rush and never offered drink refills, we had to ask every time. Our food looked really good and we were excited to try it after hearing so many good reviews....

After the morning session of the State swim meet, our family went to Bub's for lunch. Our 16 year grandson was especially hungry after competing in the meet, so the enthusiastic server explained to him anyone who could eat the Big Ugly (22 oz burger) & bun gets their picture on the wall of honor. Of course, he opted to... More

we didn't try their 22 ounce burger, settling on splitting the mid size. Even that was a bit too large for the two of us. Wife had the shake and that was enough for two as well. Overall fairly tasty for a burger joint, and splitting a meal made it somewhat reasonable. Can't imagine all those people on the wall... More

The 1/2 pound hamburgers are huge. My husband ate most of his but our 14 year old son could only eat 1/2 of his. 1/4 pound burger would have been enough. I got the "Baby Bub" which was perfect for me. It's an 1/8 of a pound burger served on what looks like a yeast roll. We also split a... More

I never knew Bub's existed but I'm glad I had a chance to visit. The portobello burger was great and the fries were delicious. Will definitely put this on my must visit list!

I had the Elk Burger and it was delicious. Defiantly a place to come eat. They do have a burger challenge if you are up for it and all over their walls are pictures of people who have completed it.

I received the steak & eggs elk burger at medium. Done and seasoned to perfection. Jalapeños were excellent on burger. Bacon bits were used instead of strips, no need complaining. Also the waffle fries and onion rings were phenomenal. Plus, as an Amuse-bouche, we received a portion cup of chili, would suggest getting the chili. Would surely return.

This was our second time here. The food is still amazing! We had burgers and pickle chips. I had the vanilla Coke. Excellent! Fast and friendly service. We will come here every time we are in town!

Best Ice-cream and best burgers in Bloomington! Fries have a great flavor and are always hot. Burgers are hands down better than any I have ever had!
