Best Burgers Ever!

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

Bub's is a great place in Bloomington for burgers, fries and chili! The service is very good, and the atmosphere is great!

We were at Bub’s as part of a large group. When they began taking food orders, we advised them we had to leave earlier than others, so could they get our order processed timely. The server then proceeded to take orders for the 16 people at our table before putting our order in to be processed. A second server was... More

The wife and I join some friends here after the IU game. We had a small wait. The staff was friendly and very attentive. We all had the second biggest burger on the menu, fries, and milkshake. The food was very good, the portions very large, and the price not that bad. I would definitely eat here again.

Visited for a lunch. Reviews on here are pretty accurate, the burgers are very good, however it's hard to justify spending this much on a burger only. I got a 1/4 LB burger and fries, w/ water, cost me 12.00$ plus tip. Not really family friendly pricing but definitely a good meal if you don't mind spending the money.

The shakes and burgers are fantastic. While I wouldn't attempt the big ugly I am sure many have as the photos dominating the walls indicate. The bean and chile soup is especially good too. Great place for the whole family.
