Reviews for Roots Burger Bar

Pretty basic menu. The popcorn is almost always stale when I go to Roots, but I enjoy their food. I usually get the Impossible burger and it's always delicious. Service is sometimes a little odd- I've had servers tell me bad things about other servers working there which seems a little weird. But other than that it's a good restaurant and if you're looking for something local in Muncie rather than a chain I would recommend.

For a burger place, I expected more from the burger. It was similar to a Steak 'n Shake burger - pressed flat but for a lot more money. A beer and burger/fries was $18 before tip. Other person got a salad and soup - a big pile of iceberg lettuce with minimal veggies. Overall not impressed and this was the first time I ate at this place. Can't say I'm itching to go back. The original place - Scotty's - was much better (before it was sold off to an investment company).

Nothing special by any stretch of the imagination. I grew up in Muncie, going to Scotty's Brewhouse in this same building location. I believe Root's Burger Bar is owned by the same person, Scott Wise. If you are looking for anything comparable to Scotty's Brewhouse, look elsewhere. I had high hopes, & was very disappointed. I ordered their Brussel sprouts, which were burnt to an absolute crisp. There were no menu items that excelled to stand out, or uniqueness to brag to full review
