We eat at Bru-burgers one or two times in a normal month and always enjoy our visit. The onion ring appetizer is highly recommended and this time we added chicken nachos. They were excellent our sandwiches were also great. The servers were attentive as we’ve come to expect. In all, a great night. Their prices are moderate to high but I don’t mind paying a little more for good food and atmosphere.

The onion ring appetizer is delicious and a large size. The patty melt was very good and so was the hot chicken sandwich. I love the decor and got to sit upstairs this time. Our waiter was very good. We will definitely be back!

Great overall experience. We sat outside on the patio and it was a nice atmosphere. Great food and service. Only issue was the smell that was due to the downtown sewage.

This was my first visit to bru burger, but will not be my last. My wife and I enjoyed our meal and the decor of the restaurant itself. The staff was very friendly and our server was as well.

My only Complaint is that I found the fries too greasy, although they tasted good.

As for the burger it was cooked as I requested and I asked our server to tell the cook they did a fine job preparing our meal.

We had salads with the chicken & salmon add ons & each was fabulous. The bread pudding & fresh coffee at the end was off the charts! Our service was perfect. My friends are from Charlotte & Asheville - well traveled people & living in food areas - they said it was one of the best lunches they have had & I’d have to agree. Will be back soon!

We always love going to Bru for dinner! Atmosphere is great, service is always outstanding, and the food is the best around. All of the vegetarian and vegan options are yummy (and there are lots of them)!

Bru Burger is a fantastic place to eat. The atmosphere is terrific. It is a historic Greyhound bus station that has been renovated and looks terrific. The food is excellent, especially the onion rings. This is one of my favorite places to go in Evansville.

Bru Burger was everything I had hoped it would be... everything they have on the menu is home made; even the ketchup (which is wayyy better than regular ketchup) We had a group of 4, ordered 3 appetizers- all excellent. And we all had different burgers which were also excellent, and we maybe, MAYBE waited 5 min for the appetizers and 10 for our food.
It was literally perfect.
Server was super sweet, prices were sweeter ☺️
Definitely go here!!

This was our first time at Bru Burger and we were very impressed with the renovations. It's really nicely done. We enjoyed looking at the photos on the walls. The food was very good. Our waitress was very friendly and cordial. It was a very pleasant experience.

Food is usually pretty good. Our server on this visit left a lot to be desired. He was nice enough, but very forgetful and clueless.

Also, while I understand the eco reasons behind paper straws, they are too airy and porous for a milkshake.

The food was great! The onion rings are out of this world! The Bru Board is a great appetizer and our favorite part was the bacon and chive cream cheese. Yum!

Our waitress was new and switched my parents burgers, one had mayo one didn’t. My father flipped out, thought she was the worst waitress, wasn’t going to leave a tip, and was just down right mean. The waitress held it together fixed everything. It was her second day on the job. My mother made it right and left her a tip. I felt really bad for her. The food itself was really good. It’s kind of expensive. And when you order pretzel sticks only 3 in an order. Which I think should be 4 average family size.

This was my wife's first time at Bru Burger; I have eaten there and done carryout many times due to their great salads (Valencia being my favorite). Both salads and sandwiches (regular and burger) are strong contenders, including some really tasty vegan options. We called ahead for a casual anniversary dinner. From the moment we arrived, that anniversary was acknowledged, and throughout the evening, the importance of the evening was reinforced.

My wife enjoyed the Stilton Bleu Cheese Burger (with pear-bacon jam, fried onions, truffle aioli, and spinach) while I opted for the Grilled Portobello Sandwich (with grilled Portobello mushroom, peppadew pepper jam, arugula, goat cheese, balsamic onions, and pesto on rye...a bit messy but delicious!). The was topped off with Peach-White Chocolate Bread Pudding (which was shared and we still couldn't finish.)
My wife makes great bread budding, but even she said, "This beats mine!" The waitstaff - including our server - was wonderful and attentive.

They already earned my respect and business, but they gained a new customer in my wife by how they treated us on our special day. The atmosphere (the renovation of the classic Art Deco Greyhound Bus Station) is beautiful, functional and keeping with the original building's exterior.

Lunch is pretty packed during the week; evenings during the week not as much. We went on a Thursday and service/time was great.

I really enjoyed our dinner at Bru Burger. He lamb burger was “like a gyro on a bun,” my daughter said. Service was fantastic and it was lovely inside. I am only disappointed that I made a reservation online, as it wasn’t really necessary. Online it said there were no tables open past 3:45pm on a Thursday but when we left at 4:45, there were only 5 tables occupied. I would have much preferred a later dinner.

Everything our group ordered was great. I just didn't realize my appetizer was a fancy lunch meat tray. But the Cajun Mac N Cheese was to die for. Service was great.

Bru burger's food is always excellent! It is busy, crowded, and loud. It is a fun atmosphere so they can pull it off. We had a reservation for 8 plus a high chair. We were set at a 6 top plus high chair. We were able to squeeze in 2 more chairs and made it work. We will be back.
