Fun Place, CHEAP

Fast food, really cheap! Large selection, fun place, good place to get a fried food fix. Suggest a picnic table at the drive in, versus a table at the diner......during good weather, that is.

We came for a nice family dinner and the fries were stale, chicken tenders chewy and cold. All the food was the same and the burgers were filled with thick cold meat. What was originally a 3 dollar burger costs at least 5 dollars if you want anything more than cold meat. It was disgusting food but the shakes were... More

After all the raves about this place, I decided to check it out along with family members. I ordered a tenderloin sandwich, some fried mushrooms and their "superb" root beer. I could not wait for my food. After all we were going to be served in our car. I was pumped! I was really deflated after we got our food.... More

I've been coming to Mug-n-Bun since I was a little kid. Great food, great staff, great service. I've never left disappointed.

Have been reading about Mug 'n Bun since we moved here 11 years ago. Read about it "100 Things to Do in Indianapolis." Gave it a shot at noon this past Sunday. July 19, 2015. Burger was cold. Sweet potato fries were cold and doused in cinnamon and sugar. Tenderloin...for hubby...big and tasteless. Redeeming quality...great root beer in cold glass... More

Lifelong area resident, just now getting around to visiting this Speedway institution. Overall, it was OK. Not off the charts as I was lead to believe. Better selection than Sonic, but food is a ethos up. Chili dogs were alright, if not on the bland side. Homemade root beer is a definite must. No posted menu on parking sides so... More

Had a couple footlongs and a dog with chili sauce and cheese. We thought the footlongs were unbelievable and the chili cheese were just OK. Fries were very good as was the root beer. Really cool place to try.

We went on a spur of the moment invitation of a friend. We had been there years ago and remembered being OK. We got the breaded tenderloin. While it was big and came with plenty of toppings, it was very dry and tasteless. We also ordered sweet potato fries- if you don't like cinnamon and sugar on them, you will... More

Old style drive in with good food. You drive up and leave your lights on and the carhops come out to serve you. They have some of the best tasting root beer and burgers. If in the area should definitely stop by. Everyone is friendly!!
