Casual atmosphere but best burgers I have ever had. Everyone in my family (young and old) enjoyed the experience.

Bubs is a great option if there is no line. The burgers are good, although only the very traditional basic options, and the ice cream is always delicious. DEFINITELY A FAMILY SPOT. Don't go if you don't want to be around a lot of kids. They even have games set up outside for kids to play while they wait.

Great food but the noise level and heat build up inside is not good at all. Can be tough to get an outside table.

We always enjoy Bubs Burgers. It is a little pricey but the burgers are great as well as the service. It is right on the Monon so very easy to walk or bike to.

Now I will be speaking from the perspective of a picky eater and most often gravitates towards burgers at restaurants as the safe default choice; now with that said let me tell you about this place... I was attempting to avoid going back into Indy for a meal and see more of the small towns around Indianapolis; I took out... More

My daughter and I had the Moosetracks. My wife had the blueberry. It was all delicious. Will definitely go back to try the "Ugly Burger" next time we are in town.

I admit that I went because of the feature on Man Vs. Food and the Big Ugly Challenge. I wasn’t disappointed and have been back 3 times. I recommend for the family atmosphere (I’ve visited in daytime hours) and the really good burgers. It is not a huge place, so be prepared for a moderate wait, but there’s plenty of... More

Bub's is known for its burgers, and did not disappoint. We ate inside and it gets a bit loud in there, but not too bad. On a nice day, you can't beat an outside table. The staff was courteous and the service is fast. The ice cream is really good, too, and they will even make a smiley face on... More

We visited Carmel for my 55th birthday and decided to go for a late lunch at Bub's based on the good reviews. We were lucky in that there was no waiting for one of the outside tables. We both had the 1/4 lb. burger with cheese and bacon. Really enjoyed the burger and the soft bun. Yes, the prices are... More

A long time favorite in Carmel & right along the Monon, this is a very popular spot. The food is always delicious but now has become pricey. Diet Coke ($2.65), Blackened Chicken Sandwich ($7.65), Onion Rings ($6.45), adding cherry syrup to a coke ($.50), 1/4 # burger ($7.10), bacon bits for the burger ($ .50) & Jalapenos for the burger...
