I would consider this place a 'must visit' when you are in town. Great food, wonderful location for people watching, prices good and they have a little side ice crème shop that still serves good old fashioned hard ice cream. They don't accept reservations, so go early if you go on a weekend.

Bub's burgers are some of the best on the north side. The menu is simple but they offer beef, elk or chicken along with a solid menu for the kids.

Very reasonable, good portion sizes, and tasty. Opt for the smaller size as the burgers and buns are very dense.

Hamburger was very dry, I ordered medium done, it came overdone. My daughter ordered a hot dog, the sausage was poor quality. Salad was ok, but nothing special.
