Overpriced for very small portion, slow service, and chicken sandwich with strange consistency. Prior visits had been ok.

I've only been here once but need to go back. This may be the best burger place ever. They have 3 sizes of burgers up to 1 pound.

You will not find a better burger or hotdog anywhere...and I have visited numerous restaurants that claim to have the best burgers, Bubs is a must visit!

Great burgers and ice creams ! Good place to sit out in the sun - great for summers. It has indoor seating as well. Its located conveniently in the Carmel downtown - parking could be done streetside or in the public parking plaza close by.

We hadn't been here for awhile so felt it was time to return. Host and wait staff were (estimated to be) high school students who were very friendly and attentive. Good milkshake, tasty hamburger, and mediocre fries. Pretty much got what we came for.

I was there twice, and twice unhappy. First time they cheated me with tip. Second time we were there with my Friend on Sunday. We were waiting 40min for a table inside drinking beer outside. When we finished they told us that they forgot to put our names one the waiting list.

If you're in or near Carmel and want a burger Bub's Burgers is the place! We stopped in for lunch on our way to Southern Indiana and it was well worth it.
