A Big Ugly Burger, a unique independent restaurant, and a fun trip...

May 21, 2013 | Schedulefly Crew
Last week, Luke Pearson of Lift Films and I traveled to Carmel, IN to film for the Restaurant Owners Uncorked video series. We shot an interview with Matt Frey, owner of Bub's Burgers & Ice Cream and Bub's Cafe

We are SO....DARN....PROUD to serve awesome restaurants like Bub's. Incredible food, great service delivered by smiling, happy teams of people, and a fun, unique, memorable experience. I'm so stoked that we decided to produce our video series, because it gives us the chance to hang with some of the many incredible people who use Schedulefly. Making life easier at cool places like Bub's is why we do what we do at Schedulefly. It's why we exist. Just knowing that we provide something that is useful to and helps nice people like the ones Luke and I got to know last week - people we admire and respect and enjoy being around - is what we wake up excited about around here every day.

Anyway, I'm trying to be good about taking pics while we're on these trips, to document the experience and to have something fun to share on our blog. Here's a few I liked...

This is a "Big Ugly Burger"(BUB). It's one pound after cooked plus a half pound bun and toppings. As you can see by the three slices of cheese covering it, this thing is no joke. It stares at you and dares you to try to take it down. You nod your head and confidently say, "I got this," while you are thinking to yourself, "Dude, are you really about to try to eat THIS?" If you clean your plate, they take your picture and put it on their wall...


So, of course, Luke and I now have our picture on their wall...


About four hours after knocking back that gigantic burger, I sat on the front porch of Bub's and enjoyed a Peanut Butter Moose Tracks ice cream cone and snapped this pic...


Bub's was packed inside and out almost constantly from open to close...


We couldn't believe they are able to crank out as many burgers as they do in a very small kitchen, so we had to film it. It's awesome to watch and you'll see footage on the upcoming vids. Notice the replica stack of a dozen 10" pancakes. That's the "challenge meal" at Bub's Cafe, and nobody has ever cleaned their plates. Luke and I didn't even bother to try...


This old timer was playing some awesome blues music for about five hours one afternoon and evening. He was happy to let us film him, and I bet we'll figure out a way to get his footage into one of the vids...


Luke's probably thinking, "Dang, that one-pound burger is sitting mighty heavy right now...


This pic was taken right before we split town...


Another incredible trip! Thanks for taking the time to read this, and if you like this kind of stuff, make sure to stay tuned for the upcoming videos we're producing of Matt discussing what it takes to start and run successful restaurants like Bub's.
