Great service fantastic burgers and shakes

This is the second time we've been here while visiting the campus. Sooooooo good! The burgers are to die for. Onion rings were spectacular. Grilled chicken sandwich was perfect! We will be back again next time we visit.

Wanted to try this place seeing all the good reviews. Greatly disappointed. Burger was overcooked and dry. Ordered a burger and fries and if I remember correctly it was $11.95?? Way over priced. I have had many better burgers at half the price. Doubt that I will return.

The "Not so ugly Elk burger" was good. The bun was kinda toasted which I personally didn't care for. Waffle chili cheese fries were very delicious. The service and staff was excellent.

Two things I can recommend highly from this location of the popular restaurant -- the pizza soup and the elk burger. First the soup. If you like the taste of pizza but the crust and cheese weigh you down, this soup is a great alternative. And the elk burger just has a lighter taste than a tradition burger.

Bub's exceeded my expectations. I ordered the Elk Burger. It was juicy and tender. The buns are locally made and are outstanding. They are somewhat flaky and fresh. We also got a basket of waffle sweet potatoes. The marshmallow dipping sauce made me want to get a straw and drink it up. We ended with peanut butter moose tracks ice... More

Second visit to Bub's. Elk burger is very good as is the sweet potato waffle fries! Of course dipping them in marshmallow creme only enhances the flavor. Where do you start? Desert first as they brought out the vanilla shake along with the "leftover ice cream" in the mixing cup. Will be going back in next trip to Bloomington, Indiana.

Firstly, I highly recommend their food. It was amazing. I had an elk burger, and it was great. I highly recommend this place for a quick bite to eat. My only legitimate complaint was from one of the waiters. I watched as a waiter used someone's bill to cover his mouth as he coughed. He then walked off to, presumably,... More

Bub's is always good no matter what city it is in. They have delicious food and a great atmosphere. This particular location is not very centrally located downtown, so the location leaves something to be desired. Also, service was surprisingly slow despite the lack of crowd at lunch time.

While I love Bub's for the burgers....this is for the ICE CREAM! My favorite place in town to get a malt...Black Cherry. They just seem to put the right amount of malt powder in...so you know it's not just a shake. Here's a hint....if you get your malt for "dine in" they give you the metal mixing cup with the... More
