    The burgers are excellent. Milkshakes are great too, BUT be prepared to wait too long to receive it. They said they were busy, but I can't think of an excuse to wait 15-minutes for a mikshake. :(

    Not so ugly is big enough, and tastes amazing. Relatively expensive place though.

    If you have a hearty appetite, this is the place. All Burger weights are AFTER cooking, so when you get a quarter pound "Not so Ugly", that's what it weighs when it gets to you. Try the Elk.

    The burgers are not only excellent but very customizable. The staff is well-informed and very good at explaining all of the menu options.

    I love getting waffle fries with a side of chili or soup to dip them in! Grilled/blackened chicken fingers are also amazing!

    A great alternative to Scotty's Brewhouse, this burger joint is the company's first foray outside of their hometown of Carmel, IN where they have a similar restaurant in addition to a breakfast café).

    Vegheads need not despair in this carnivorous den. They have a great portobello cap sandwich. The menu says mushroom burger, but there's no dead cow on this one.

    For anyone not from Btown and you are trying to locate Bub's it's actually more like at 9th and Morton rather than 8th which is City Hall.

    The ice cream shop is separate from the restaurant, so no need to eat there if all you want is something cold.

    Go for "The Big Ugly" challenge and get your picture on the wall. Two in one sitting gets you a larger pic. Four will get you a life-size cutout.
