    Great salads, as always, but my burger was not up to par with the usual one served. Last nights was dry, tough and not very hot. It was underwhelming! Typically they are great but maybe this one sat under a heat lamp too long or something.

    Although their was some confusion when I was seated at the bar, the service was ultimately outstanding. I really enjoyed the spicy burger. Atmosphere was initially a bit subdued, because it was early, but by the time I left, it was a lively atmosphere. It was a business meal alone, so it was brief, but very enjoyable. I’ll be back.

    Fries were dripping with grease. Glasses stayed empty for way too long. The chicken tenders appetizer was solid but when it came out the server just flung it across the table and walked on. Table was ready when we arrived for our reservation.

    Had eaten at Bru Burger at Notre Dame and was excited to see there was one in Lexington. The pork nachos and pretzels with mustard and cheese were both very good. Nachos one of the best I’ve ever had. 2 of us had burgers which were phenomenal. Fries and onion rings delicious too. The other two of us had the Cobb salad added chicken. These were good salads too. Their dressings are homemade as well as ketchup. Kinda unique flavors. They did have regular ketchup at our request. Some liked their version others preferred regular ketchup. The restaurant was somewhat full, but not packed. It was a cold evening in Feb, but looks like they have a nice patio when it warms up.

    BRU Burger Bar - LexingtonResponded on February 21, 2022Faye, we are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us at Bru Lexington. The pork nachos and pretzels are some of our guest's favorite and are glad you agree! We cannot wait to see you again soon, if you come back during the summer our patio is definitely a hit!

    Bru is an amazing place to visit. The food is arguably one of the best in Lexington. The only issue we had with our last visit, was our server. He could have been a little friendlier. He made us feel as if we couldn't ask for anything. We had hard time finding him, etc. Other than that, Bru is still one of the best places.

It took a little longer than expected to get our food but it was a busy Saturday night and we had great beer to pass the time. Lovely establishment and great burgers!
