This was one of the best burgers I've ever had!!! I was out in Indy for work and since this was on Man V Food I had to visit to see what all the hoopla was all about. I had the Not So Ugly burger Chipotle style with bacon. Cooked perfectly!! Service was awesome! Glad I'm going home soon...I could... More

The front of the building reminds you of an old school ice cream parlor. Parking was a premium on a Saturday evening but eventually we were able to park behind the building. The back entrance displays their burger sizes and menu. The room is filled with pictures all over the walls. We were placed upstairs for our dining table. Stairwell... More

Three words....try the Elk. The elk burger is fantastic. They say that BUB's stands for Big Ugly Burger but there is nothing ugly about it. The meat is juicy and tender, the buns are fresh and moist. This is a spot not to miss.

We've visited here a few times and we haven't been disappointed once. The Elk burgers are fantastic. The menu is a little pricey, but worth stopping in occasionally anyway. Our last visit we tried the ice cream for the first time. We could definitely make a habit of that also!

I eat here pretty frequently, both with my family and work colleagues. I'm usually skeptical of any restaurant that claims to serve the best burger, but this place truly lives up to the hype. Their beef burgers are the best I've ever had, and I would definitely recommend their elk burger to anyone who has never tried one before. Their... More

Big burger does not impress. I would rather have a great small burger than these over size very salty hamburgers. Just saying.

Going to Bubs for a burger is like going over to a friends house and they dazzle you with their burger-craft. Everyone should go at least once in their life. Like the "Cheers" of burger joints.

We've had good times and good burgers at Bub's. Be patient. Have a beer and enjoy the wait on a summer evening and visit with the friends joining you. Cause you will be waiting!?#itsallgood

Great place for a good burger without the hipster atmosphere. Granted not a cheap place to eat but much better quality than fast food burger joints. Bubs has been a Carmel standard for at least a decade now and has not lost it's edge no matter how the area changes. Go early because lines form especially on the weekend. Eat... More
