You can tell by the name is focus in burgers. What it doesn't say is that it's way more than just a normal hamburger. Yes they do have that but it's so much more. They have many styles to choose from, fish included. The sides...More

These are great burgers, not the run of the mill burgers, but not crazy either. It was great for me because they had the best gluten free buns I have ever had. Fries and cole slaw were good too.

The food was great. We had the Bru Burger and fries. The service was also great. It's in a fun location near Mass Ave with indoor and outdoor seating. You can't pass up this burger joint when in Downtown Indy.

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.
