Good burgers

Great place to stop for a burger. The staff is helpful, and the food was very good. This place has a very relaxed atmosphere.

Some bar & grills surprise you....this one did not. The booths were high-backed, which allowed for conversation at your table without hearing everyone else talk, but they were also hard and uncomfortable. The service was ok; waitress was friendly but not attentive, and the place really wasn't that busy- it was a Saturday night, so I guess I should've figured... More

Stopped by for a quick drink & bite to eat on a Monday afternoon. Few cars in lot and few customers in restaurant. Took some time for waitress to come to my booth, but when she did, she was chatty & cheerful (my favorite waitress, Robin, was off that day), so I had "Lindsay". After a brief discussion with her,...

Serving typical bar food, Between the Buns is great for a Notre Dame game day experience, but not much else. The food is done well and the bar sports plenty of Notre Dame memorabilia. I would recommend the fried cajun chicken strips for something besides burgers and sandwiches.

Never eat here. Waitress brought the wrong meal to our table. When we said this is not how we ordered it she grabbed the plate away. Within twenty minutes she returned and literally threw the plate at my mother. We immediately asked for the manager who listened to us apologised and took our number. Nothing was ever done and they... More

Something for everybody here. Typical bar food and drinks in here. Some good burgers and sandwiches, inexpensive. Food is pretty good, I always enjoy my meal. Service is friendly. Some cool decorations and Notre Dame memorabilia in here. There are better places in town, but this place is good as well. Discount for Notre Dame students.

We were looking for somewhere to eat before the ND game on November 23. We stumbled across this place and decided to give it a try. From the outside, it is barely noticeable. In fact, we drove by it twice and finally found it from a liquor store parking lot across the street. Once inside, however, it seemed as though... More
