We were staying at a nearby hotel and walked in thirty minutes to close. Staff were friendly and service was timely and hospitable. Met expectations. Food was great and kids enjoyed their kid meals. Great experience. Clean and great environment. Cool vibe. Would return if I lived in the area.

Service was a tad slow but in all fairness they were busy with the Keeneland weekend. Within walking distance of several hotels. Our table had the soft pretzels for apps which were good. Entrees we had included the beginner burger, melt your face burger, and memphis BBQ melt. Onion rings were awesome.

Server was very attentive throughout our visit there. We stayed quite a while as we were watching the UK game. I kept checking to make sure we were not hogging a table, but there seemed to always be several table available. We were never rushed, however. Trainee manager stopped by to talk. I am a regular, but my date had never been. He was impressed with food, service and ambiance. We will be back!!

This was our second time at Bru Burger. First time trying Bru Burger we had a very disappointing experience. The second visit was much better! Our waitress in training performed much better than our waiter on the first visit. Being new and in training they were a few flaws( which was to be expected) but overall I have no complaints on the service I received. Our food came out fast and correct which was much different than our first experience. I recommend trying Bru Burger if you have not.

Bru has some of the best burgers I have ever tasted. We have eaten at the lexington Bru location 4 times and it has been consistently delicious. Service has also been consistently great. Further, hit this spot on Veterans day for a free meal (Any menu entre plus a side). My wife is active duty and I am a veteran and it was a great experience this year.

TL;DR, great service, great food, free meal on Veterans day.

We were warmly greeted upon arrival and our Open Table reservation was honored immediately despite a long line of people who did not have a reservation. Outstanding! The burger selection was extensive and everyone found something they liked. The noise level was a little loud for conversation but the food was good.

Burgers don't sound exceptional....until you have one. This was a great choice. Terrific patty melt, great Caesar salad and a pint of quality amber ale to wash them down. My advice.... just go and see for yourself.

The vegan Impossible burger was really good. We had reservations on a Friday night, then a really bad storm came. Lots of people were out of power, including BruBurger. They were calling their reservations via cell phones to let everyone know they were not open.
