“Good Food, Friendly Service”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I have gone to Bunny’s twice, the first time because it was close to where I was doing business, the second because I remembered how good it was the first time. Bunny’s is your typical, modestly decorated tavern with an emphasis on food. It has a counter, seating with high tables and a few outside options. The television is set on sports programs.

I have gotten the burger, which is good. The servers are very friendly and I left satisfied with the meal and the atmosphere. Be sure to get your frequent dinner card, Bunny’s Lunch Club. I plan to return during my next visit to Urbana.

“Bunny's is fun, clean, cheap, and tasty”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Bunny's has been around since 1936, tucked away in downtown Urbana. The drinks and food are cheaper than most places in town. There are TV's playing different channels from sports to movies, poker machines, and live bands playing outside on the weekends. Tables and chairs outside, and a parking lot adjacent. Truly, the "Best Kept Secret in Downtown Urbana!"

The best time to go is on Sunday's when Bunny's feature "Duck Fat Fries." Wednesday is $1.00 specials that include; Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, Cheesy Bacoburger Slider, Smoked Chicken & Jalapeno Eggroll, along with $2.00 16-oz. Margarita's.

“Black Dog and Bunny's Tavern BEST IN Champaign-Urbana AND LOCALS know it!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Hungry? This is the place to go. Meat lover? Smoked and with choice of original sauces ala cart? Super great food with fun presentation on baker's trays. STANDING ROOM ONLY and no reservations accepted. Food priced in mid teens for big platters, burgers under $10. Sides are authentic and delicious. Help is friendly.

It's a bar too and there are many micro brewery offers in both beers and liquors. Descriptions, prices and proof ratings. Old Weller bourbon and Arrogant Bast*rd Ale were two of our party's favorites.

Booths, high footed tables and wood bar give the old bar ambiance that I would expect in the old-town but right off the main drag of University of Illinois campus. Fun patrons, all lively with talk and great people-watching material for later introspection. Oh yea, have fun and eat to your heart's content. Love this joint. Selling T's too. Parking good in side lot. But if you don't mind waiting for at least 1/2 hour even in between lunch and dinner time, you will still wait.

It's worth it.
Just bring people you like to talk with and your experience with be fulfilled to the max.

Bon appetit!
