Went Saturday afternoon to Mass Ave for lunch after a great time at Lucas Oil, Tiny home show. The day was nice and warm so we sat outside for our lunch. We ordered a great Gorgonberry Pecan Salad. This was a wonderful salad with many different taste. This will delight your senses. I ordered the small one and it was... More

You probably won't have a problem with wait time if you're here in a weekday, but because they are popular and don't take reservations the wait can exceed an hour during the weekend. The burgers are good, but I won't say they're worth waiting over an hour for. They do have a patio in front of the restaurant so it's... More

Really great burgers. Had the Honey Chipotle BBQ Burger and it did not disappoint. Massive burger that was cooked to perfection, onion ring and bacon on it with pulled pork; had everything you could ask for and more. Onion rings (sides you pay extra) were good but two of them weren't cooked all the way so that was the only... More

Had a blue cheese burger with caramelized onion pear relish (or something!) that was to die for. Huge portions. Fries were excellent, too, with homemade ketchup. My teen son and I could have shared one order, though. His burger disappeared rapidly, too. Small, semi-noisy environment at lunch so good for going out with buddies, maybe not so much for a...

I hate to be the person to say it, but this place was really overrated. Maybe I just ordered wrong, but the tuna burger I ordered was overly sweet and fell apart as soon as I picked it up. It also really bothered me that they make all of their condiments. The "ketchup" they served us was more like watery... More

Night out with the family? Probably not a great idea going with little ones here on a weekend like we did. They were extremely slow and busy. The burgers were pretty good though.

First time going to Bru and the food was great! I had the blackened fish sandwich and my friend had a Bleu burger, both were wonderful. The bread pudding is a must so save room for dessert. My friends and I will definately be back. I want to add that the service was excellent.

We enjoyed the dips appetizer with fried onions and pittas before our entree and saved the extra dips and guacamole to top our burgers-heavenly! Enjoyed our meal- my daughter had a fabulous beef burger while I had the veggie burger. They were both fabulous! Plenty of food and exceptionally good. We enjoyed good service also. We were dining for lunch... More

Got there early, 4:45ish, got our burgers (1 was gluten free) and chowed down. All our tummies said "wowza"! By the time we left, there was a mob at the door. We repeated "wowza"! Go early...avoid getting hangry!
