My family goes to Bubs on a regular basis during the fair weather months. We love the patio dining. The food is great and the menu has something for everyone.

If you like Speciality Meats, this is the place to go for that "Special Burger". A very fine selection of Fresh Ice Cream is available to eat as your inhouse dessert, or take it with you on a walk through "The Arts and Design District".

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.

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.

Four of us went on a Saturday night. We were told there be a 20 minute wait and at the 20 minute mark we were seated. This places claim to fame are the burgers from an one pounder to an eighth of a pound. If you eat the pounder, you get your picture on the wall. The burger was juicy... More
