Bub’s is a Bloomington outpost of a Carmel, Indiana, burger joint, and burgers (and ice cream) are what they do well here — from the full pound  “Big Ugly” to the 1/4 pound “Settle for Less Ugly” burger in ground beef or healthier elk.  Dress ‘em as you like ‘em and add sides of fries, slaw, potato salad, or onion rings. Hand-dipped shakes and malts are added bliss!
