If you want a burger and fries or even a steak the food is okay. The salad, pretty much straight from a bag of iceberg lettuce mix, is terrible. The atmosphere is good for watching a game and having a beer. If there's no game on the music is typically too loud for you to talk to someone at the other end of the table and have them hear you. That wouldn't be so bad if the music was from this decade but they need to toss the 90's pop mix that plays. Overall I would go again for a drink and/or watching a game with friends. I wouldn't go back just for the food or the atmosphere.

Local hot spot recommended to us by our motel. Great food. Reasonable price. Wonderful service. We'd go back again!

Interesting burgers and "home" fries that were giant steak fries like none I'd had before. Great waitress---she made us laugh and she added to the festive atmosphere.

When traveling on business, you're never quite sure about places you go to eat, but Bruff's turned out to be a pretty good place. Its a sports bar atmosphere, but it appears to have a full menu and good food. They have a decent draft beer selection, lots of options in bottled beer, lots of TV's (almost all showing the Kansas City Chiefs preseason football game, though), and best of all, they were celebrating their 25th anniversary with $2.50 junior hamburgers and fries. And they were well worth the price - very good. We sat at the bar and ate, the service was a bit slow but this place had lots of people in it. Many other places along the interstate weren't nearly as busy.

Overall, a very nice experience.

Burger looked great in the picture. Food was pretty average. Nice atmosphere though. We would go back but wouldn't be dying to.
