Good Elk Burger

I am in Bloomington for a week to carve some limestone, and the person at the desk of my motel suggested Bubs. I walked around Bloomington first to gin up an appetite (college is out for the summer and it's really quiet) and then went in Bubs where the maitres d were very friendly and pointed me... read more

Haven't tried the burgers but I had the Chicken sandwich and bub's hot dog. They were both juice and a lot of flavor. My wife likes there chili a lot also.

Come with an appetite if you want to conquer the Big Ugly! It starts out at 22 oz of meat. Three of my grandsons have done it and have their pictures on the walls of fame. This is a must if you are in Bloomington, Indiana.

I can only comment on the ice cream here because that's all I had. And it was incredible! It was so creamy and flavorful. I have had my fair share of ice cream, and this place may take the cake. The small area that houses the ice cream shop part of this restaurant has playful murals on the walls and... More

Bub's Burgers and Ice Cream has the best burgers ever! It is THE place to eat in this college town. Delicious soups, too. And if you have any room left (which is sincerely doubtful!), try the ice cream!

This is a fun college place in a college town. Their largest burger has been featured TV it is so huge. I wouldn't say this is a gourmet burger by any means but the burgers are made fresh using fresh ingredients and it is not fast food either. Great selection of shakes. Eating certain burgers gets your picture up on... More

I had the Bub’s Grilled Portobello Mushroom Sandwich which wasn't bad and it was really nice to have a different option than the standard meat sandwiches. My husband had the elk which he thought was very good. We also had their ice cream for dessert which we enjoyed. We would visit again.

We kept smelling the burgers cooking at Bub's Burgers whenever we were in the neighborhood and we decided to visit it after a busy day. They served some of the best burgers we have ever eaten (including those grilled at home). The milkshakes were yummy and the waffle fries were really good, as well. I highly, highly recommend when you... More
