We are visiting from Houston, Texas (where everything is suppose to be bigger)...but Bub's Burgers does big in just the right size! They are large burgers, but totally doable. I like that on the menu they tell you that the 1 pound of burger is actually weighed after cooking it. We all got burgers and they were honestly delicious. Perhaps... More

Big Ugly me anytime. Wow! What a burger. It's huge, it's good, it's ugly, and I love it. The place has a great atmosphere with outdoor seating on the Monon trail. A must do experience. With burgers this big and good I am happy with being what I eat, Ugly be me!

Great family restaurant, located close to Monan trail. Excellent food for the family. You can ride your bike, jog, or drive to this fun place. You are able to dine outside with your family, or friends if you prefer.

Bub's is one of the pioneer first restaurants in downtown Carmel and has stayed in the establishment because it is fun and unique. Really enjoy their strawberry shake.

Gives the atmosphere of the "home made" hamburger in a central location. I would expand the menu, in the same type of meals, but more alternatives.
