Everyone goes to Bub's Burgers for the...(wait for it) burgers which are great of course. Try the chili on your next trip. I loved it. Tasty, not too spicy, one of the best. Being downtown Carmel I was concerned about parking but not to worry. They have plenty in the back. Or the next time you are on the trail,... More

Very reasonable, good portion sizes, and tasty. Opt for the smaller size as the burgers and buns are very dense.

Hamburger was very dry, I ordered medium done, it came overdone. My daughter ordered a hot dog, the sausage was poor quality. Salad was ok, but nothing special.

When the restaurant has "burgers" in its name they better be good. I mean really good. Especially if they are more than $5. Dont worry...this place is a hard core classic burger joint that fixes it the best way possible....anyway you want. I said classic. That means no tofu burgers or blue cheese toppings..Down home burgers with traditional toppings done... More

We are so lucky to have encountered this place on our weekend getaway. The service was fantastic and the food was phenomenal! Delicious, generous portions, tentative staff, and friendly atmosphere. The ice cream shop gave great recommendations which were yummy and nothing short of amazing! HIGHLY recommend!!!!

We have been here several times. I hear so many rave reviews, I keep wanting to be wowed by the food. It just doesn't do it for me. It isn't someplace we would go out of our way for. They have little to no Gluten Free options. Just meh.
