Our food was just below average! Onion rings were a big glob of batter and cold! They took them off our bill. Burgers were just ok. Compared to other places we go to in Plainfield, they are are least favorite. I doubt we ever go back! Especially for the price. Even the real fries looked like we got the bottom of the basket and were not hot!
Too bad. Nice place but food not impressive at all!

You simply cannot go wrong at Bru. Many other casual restaurants have incredible waits and uneven service. Bru accepts and honors reservations. We enjoyed some great salads and chicken and of course those fries. Service was outstanding as always.

This was our first time going so my husband could get a “great burger “. Unfortunately, his was awful! The manager came to our table and corrected the issue. Although the 2nd burger was better, he said he had a better one at DQ. Basically, the price was high and the food mediocre. (I don’t mind paying for a great burger.) Although our waitress was fantastic, we will go somewhere else next time.

We visit Bru Burger a couple of times a month, and while the service used to be very good, the past few times (and especially last night) was very lacking. We were ignored by our server, ran out of drinks twice and were not given silverware. We weren’t checked on. Hopefully the service will return to the way it has been in the past, because we very much enjoy the food.

Average food for an above average price. 3 sandwiches and fries plus, one soft drink and one margarita was $54 plus tip so $64. Average $21/meal. Pretty pricey for burgers and fries…

This was my go to place for a great turkey burger. Unfortunately, this time it was a little dry & lacking the normal amount of bourbon sauce. The salad (pecan gorganberry) was still awesome. My husband's beef burger was the same. Service was excellent & craft beer selection was good.
