We have eaten here several times and have always been happy with our meals. In the past we have had burgers, salads and a few basic sides. Today I ordered the wings and I was so disappointed. First of all, nothing in the description on the menu indicated they were battered and deep fat fried. So needless to say, these... More

Always enjoy my visit. From the chili and soup shooters (the chili is grand for a cold day in a bread bowl) to the sweet potato fries with marshmallow dip you can't go wrong here. It's a bit pricey but the burgers are thick (they include elk I believe).

If your name includes a particular food, that food in question had better be good. I'd heard good things about Bubs and I am a sucker for a great burger. Went in and attempted the Big Ugly challenge. 22oz post cooked weight burger (beef or elk). The bun is no joke either. Went with the elk as it is a... More

What a nice family dining event. Both of our boys crushed the big ugly in under 10 minutes. Wife and I split one with plenty left over. Its not just big, it is quite tasty as well. Our server was exceptional, friendly and genuine. The boys and their friends even had room for an ice cream afterwards. Oh my.

Kinda overpriced and all they have is burgers! They say ice cream but it's actually a shop next door.

This is a great joint. Loved the elk burger and crispy sweet potato waffle fries. Super yummy Bear Claw shake to finish it off. We will return again for sure!

Bub's is known for the big ugly burger which I've never had because I don't think I could eat it all. If your wondering the big ugly is a 1 pound ground chuck burger with all the toppings and that weight is after it is cooked. If you eat all of it you get your picture on the wall. My... More

My husband and I each got a Settle for less cheeseburger. Both the meat & the bun were so delicious. I got a side of onion rings & my husband got fries, so we could try both. I thought the rings were much better, but my husband liked the fries. This place was so good. The walls were covered with... More

Our burgers were cooked exactly as we requested and were a good size even though we only had the quarter pound. The fries were great as well, crispy and not soggy and also smokin hot. Service was quick and waiter was very attentive. Make sure you look at the pictures on the wall of all the people who ate the... More
