Bub's Burgers and Ice Cream was established in Carmel, Indiana May, 2003. Matt and Rachel Frey, owners of the restaurant, had been thinking of a concept for a family restaurant with an emphasis on quality food and a fun atmosphere for several years. When they found the location along the Monon Trail, they knew it was meant to be! With a lot of family guidance and moral support, Bub's was born!
"Bub” is a family nickname for Matt and his brother-in-law and it fit perfect with the Big Ugly Burger concept. What was a family nickname has now caught on with employees and regular customers and now “Bub” can usually be found pattying burgers in the kitchen or visiting tables most days of the week!
As the name states, burgers are our specialty. Our burgers are made from fresh, handpattied ground beef. Our buns are custom made to fit our burgers and baked fresh at a local bakery. We can't emphasize quality enough. We believe this is what sets Bub's apart from most family eateries. We serve a simple menu but we make sure that all ingredients and products are the best tasting and best quality we can find.
AMAZING. I just went here for the first time a couple months ago, and I have NEVER had a better burger, at home or in a restaurant! Try the elk burger, it may sound odd, but is much leaner and tastier than a regular beef burger. Bub's is so good!

Whenever we go shopping in Carmel it is always ended by an evening at Bub's Burger's and Ice Cream. The burgers are very juicey and delicious! My husband bought one of their hoodie's as well and it is still looking new even after 2 years (he wears it ALL the time!). Great place to eat and not over priced. You definitely get what you pay for!
