The hamburger is over 100 years old. It’s a classic, purely American, and an icon. The hamburger is the people’s sandwich, everyman’s food. BRU is an ode to our love... the Burger.

One of the best burgers I’ve ever had! It was cooked perfectly (medium well), was served in a timely manner, and was delicious! Our waitress was absolutely fantastic! Her service was above and beyond!

As always Bru Burger was great. The burgers are delicious. The fries are amazing. Their house made ketchup is the best. Our server was very friendly and attentive. I also like going to Bru Burger.

Absolutely the best Bloody Mary I’ve had in a long while. I’ve been here a few times and I’ve never been disappointed. I try something new each time I go.

Our experience was wonderful as always! We didn’t feel rushed when we had to wait for other guests to show up and the food was amazing! We love everything about Bru Burger!

Nice chain restaurant in downtown Lafayette. Service was very good. Drink menu and beer selections are a strong point.

Great place to grab a burger and dessert! I'd probably get the fries next time instead of the onion rings. Loved the vegetarian options.

The food was great and our server went above and beyond. We stopped arrived about an hour before our reservation. The hostesses seemed annoyed and told us it would be about 20 minutes. They sat us in under 5 minutes. I was surprised. It seemed as if they really were not encouraging us to stay. Once seated the rest of our dinner was very good and I would definitely recommend this place.

Enjoyed our meal, a burger, a salad and two ahi burgers. Everyone loved the food and our server was excellent. Been to Indy location and found this one to be of the same high quality.

Great spot. Went on a Monday and that may have contributed to them being out of a couple of drafts beers. The bad part was that they were out of the good ones.

Waitress was very helpful and attentive, food took some time to come out but was delicious and well cooked! We had the Bourbon Burger, BRU Burger, the pretzel sticks, and onion rings. Good prices for good quality! Overall, a great experience and we look forward to coming back soon!

We were in town from Utah for my husband’s graduation and found this place on google. It was soooo good. There were 6 people in our party and each person ordered something different and we’re still talking about our meals. You can also tell that everything is fresh and homemade.

Food was excellent and fairly priced for the ambiance. Service from beginning to end was marginal.

The burgers were pretty good although they were not cooked to a medium temperature. My husband was served the wrong beer and the margarita I had was not a margarita at all. It was awful! We were bummed because the BRU Burger in Indy is amazing.

Liked the menu choices. Took the waitresses suggestion between two burgers. Was a great choice. Did not care for the house made ketchup. Was too sweet for my taste.

Pace of service was a bit slow but not horrible. Staff was friendly.

Great new restaurant in downtown Lafayette with a nice outdoor seating area. Appetizers (pretzels and chili cheese fries) were awesome. Bourbon burger was delicious! Highly recommend!

I was disappointed that I made a reservation and when we arrived we were given the worst table in the whole restaurant. We were sat immediately next to the kitchen entrance so not only was it very busy but it was SUPER LOUD. We could hardly hear one another! The burgers were really good and the cocktails were good and the onion rings and fries are great! Our waiter was very nice but we only saw him once when he dropped the menu off, once when he took our order and not again until he brought our check. We were actually hoping to order more cocktails but opted to leave and walk to a nearby bar. I will visit again because the food was good but probably never again on a Saturday night. It’s way too loud and busy.

Great burgers and the onion rings were fantastic. The server was very knowledgeable and gave suggestions. The drinks were good as well. I have no complaints about this place, other than the fact that we had a reservation, and they wanted to seat us in a tiny table right outside of the kitchen. I asked if we could sit on the patio, and they accommodated our request. Will definitely return!
