“Great Eatery with a view.”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Bub's in Carmel is a great place to dine outside and people watch as they pass on the Monon Trail.The burgers are very good as well as the hot wings. Try eating the Big Ugly if you dare and get your picture on the wall. It's amazing how many people have done it. One pound burger and all the fixins' is alot to choke down. Walk off your meal at Bub's in downtown Carmel, or walk the Monon, either way you will feel better about all that beef you just woofed down.

“Good family fun”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Love the bison burger! My kids like this place since the Big Ugly was featured on the Food Network. The soup is always good as well.
It's not cheap but it's fun and good!

“Best Burgers Around!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

If you have never been to Bub's, you are missing out on some great food. Just off the Monon trail, Bub's Burgers has both indoor and outdoor dining. Our family loves this place and when anyone comes into town to visit, we bring them here. The burgers are delicious, and if you like barbeque, order some sauce on the side. They make it in-house and it is divine. As someone who normally doesn't like onion rings, Bub's has the best I have ever tasted. Also, their hand-dipped milkshakes are a real treat. During Lent, Bub's has wonderful cod sandwiches - they are flavorful and are so large they can be shared. There is always a wait at Bub's, but it is worth it - give it a try!

“good burger”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

On my recent visit to Bub's I ordered the 1/4 pound burger and it was very good. Another person in our party ordered the chile and said it was great. Milkshakes were ordered by two of the party and said they were very good. My complaint was a small basket of waffle fries only contained 7 pieces. i said something to our waitress and she said that all portions are weighed out.. Pretty cheap for something that does not cost much. The onion rings that were not burned were good. i do not know if I would go back to bubs as there are better burgers out there.

Nice to sit outside next to the Monon trail during the Spring, summer and fall. Service is fast and friendly. Burgers and fries are very tasty.
