We all absolutely loved our burgers. Very delicious and great selection. If we're ever in Indy again, we'd love to stop here for lunch again

We ate on the patio. There were four of us. Three of us had beers and the server, Austin, was very knowledgeable about local beer and what would be good on a hot day. Our daughter had a peach margarita that was exactly as Austin...More

The burgers here are always of very good quality and great taste. I had the onion rings this time and they were exceptional.

We were surprised at the lack of interesting choices on Massachusetts Ave. the first time we walked it. So we ate at Bru Burger. Good burgers and fries. Not super expensive. Nice sidewalk cafe.

I highly enjoyed my bru burger here. Their cocktail named "Your Uber Has Arrived" is excellent too. It can be a hike to the bathrooms though.

Great burger. Almost equally matches beer battered onion rings. Awesome meal. Best burger and rings in a long time. Fries were good too. Server didn’t come back to check on us in a while. Didn’t have room to consider desert.

The burgers were all very good. The bourbon one was tasty a d well prepared. The onion rings were huge and good. The bloidy Mary was spicy and well prepped. Obvious good beer selections. Ambience of a dark bar. Server was somewhat aloof but efficient.

I have no idea. I assume if you call them they will happily sell you one. I think they are part of the Cunningham group which is quite large. The gift certificate would probably work at any of their restaurants. karen

As long as you're willing to walk a 2 or 3 blocks you can usually find metered parking on a street or a small lot around the area. Sometimes there's a cost, sometimes not as it depends on the day or time of day.
