“Awesome Burgers!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

If you are looking for a very good Burger downtown Indianapolis....this is the place!
Good prices and huge variety, fresh ingredients...
There is also a nice patio, so it is nice to eat outside and enjoy the wheather.
The only problem here apparently is always the long line, make sure to get here on time to book a table!!!!

“Great burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

We tried 3 different burgers and all 3 were fantastic! Could do with a better beer selection. Bloody Mary was delicious.

“Was not disappointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Friends of ours have been recommending Bru for a couple of months and it was delicious. Bru had cool atmosphere and unique menu items. The only questionable part of the night was the service. It was a bit lackluster. However, the meal was great!

“First Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

I ate here for the first time with my son and his girlfriend. I had a great garlic burger with a side of fries. She had a nice chicken salad and my son had the Bru Burger. The outside patio area looked great to sit out but it was full. The gentleman who waited on us was very nice and efficient, always keeping our drinks full. The prices were about average for a good burger.

“Loved my tiny hamburger!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Our "boys" took us to Bru Burger and we were not disappointed. Judging by the massive offerings I could see going to other diners' tables I realized I could not possibly consume a sandwich that big. Not to worry!! They have one a perfect size, although the name escapes me. It was delicious, just as good as the overgrown ones the "guys" were having.

Atmosphere was very, very busy but efficient. Servers were friendly. Can't wait to return!
