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.

I ordered the 1/2 pound burger with fries. The burger was good with a smoky grilled taste, but $11 for just the burger was overpriced especially for hamburger (not elk).

Took my family here while they were in town visiting. I had never been either, so we all tried it out. Everyone loved it, including myself! Burgers were great. Atmosphere was great. Loved that they had games on the table and bags with snacks for the kids! Can't wait to go back and have some ice cream! - Oh yea,... More

Loved both the burgers and ice cream. We got the special of the day, a burger Hawaiin style. It had ham, pineapple, and teriyaki sauce and I loved it. Convenient to IU campus.

First experience at Bub's and we definitely will be back for more. Easy to find a parking space out front (even on a Saturday night in B-town)...got a very roomy booth with a good view of the TVs. Our two elementary-aged kids were immediately presented with their own paper bag of goldfish crackers and gummy treats and we were given... More

I swung through for a quick carry out burger as we weren't in town for long and I had heard great things about Bub's. I wasn't disappointed as the burger was delicious. I'll definitely be going back

I can rarely say this about a restaurant, but everything on their menu is fesh and delicious. I believe they try to get all their ingredients from local vendors. The elk burgers are amazing as well as their soups (any of them!). We regularly come in to enjoy the food.
