I know how it is, when you want food that's not from a national chain, but you're scared to try out some little mom-and-pop place... Bub's Cafe is a great place to have a burger and fries, or other standard American-style cuisine. I've been for both business and pleasure, and I've never had a bad... read more

Traveling from out of town we decided to have lunch at Bub's cafe and it was excellent. We had the Burger & Patty Melt & both were very good, the fries were hot and cooked just right. I highly recommend Bub's Cafe we will be back if we are in the area!

This is pretty much a hole-in-the-wall cafe, but those are usually the best! Bub's is very retro and vintage, with toy cars and other items hanging from the ceiling. The food is reasonably priced and tastes great. I've noticed that they have a LOT of regulars here. If I had to recommend any of the food items, it would be... More

My first trip to Bub's was to meet a couple of old friends for lunch. While I would not grade my meal above average on taste, the restaurant was clean and had the old diner charm going for it, My choice was the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger, which was good, but not exceptional. Service was fast and very friendly. I ran... More

OK so the food is GREAT, but the toys are fascinating. Vintage pedal cars (who didn't want one of those?), Howdy Doody.....I think I am revealing my age. Friendly servers who always remember you, it's a lovely nostalgic experience.

One of the previous reviews raved that Bub's has the best burger in town. There are two possible explanations: Either Bub's is the only burger joint in town or the reviewer doesn't get out much. I wouldn't say it's the worst burger I've ever had from an independent restaurant (because my expectation was possibly unnaturally high from the reviews)…but it... More

My family loves eating at Bub's! The local business with a friendly staff and atmosphere makes everyone feel welcome. You can find visitors to daily regulars.

We were looking for Sunday morning breakfast and thought we would try Bub's. They are NOT open Sunday morning. That is the only reason for the poor rating. For travelers from out of town try Omelet House 710 E Dixie Hwy. Its located in between an abandoned hotel and car wash. Yes, I was hesitant to go in because of... More
